Suzanne is reinterpreting and re-recording her catalog in an acoustic, intimate, and personal manner, and releasing them as 4 new thematic albums over the course of 2010-2011.
With her sultry voice, Suzanne Vega seamlessly joins her poetry and contemporary folk song with a sound that is utterly unique and identifiable to her alone. A pioneer among singer-songwriters, Suzanne has embarked on a project to re-imagine her own songbook in a stripped down and intimate manner. The 4 volumes include
“People, Places & Things,”
“States of Being,”
“Songs of Family”
The first is Suzanne Vega Close-Up, Vol 1, Love Songs.
Welcome to the first volume of the Close-Up Series. These are songs that I have written over the years and now re-recorded. I wanted to give you, the listener, a small sort of gift. These are the songs I consider love songs, although they are also songs of attraction, flirtation, and confrontation.
Thank you for listening,
