Few words

In 1985, singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega released her stunning self-titled debut album. 25 years and 7 million albums sold later, Suzanne is widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation. Now Suzanne is reinterpreting a majority of her catalog in a close and personal manner, creating 4 new thematic albums that will be released over 2010-2012. Songs of Family is the final volume of Suzanne’s Close-Up series. Vol. 4 is comprised of songs about Suzanne’s family and the people closest to her. These are some of Suzanne’s most intimate works and this collection includes two of her earliest compositions. ‘The Silver Lady’ is one of the first songs Suzanne ever wrote, when she was just 14 years old.
