Birth name: Suzanne Nadine Vega.
Born: July 11, 1959 Santa Monica, California, USA.

Suzanne Vega was born in Santa Monica, California. Her mother Pat Vega is a computer systems analyst of German-Swedish extraction. Her father Richard Peck is of Scottish-English-Irish extraction and works in graphics. Her step-father Ed Vega is a writer from Puerto Rico.
When Suzanne was two and a half, the family moved to New York City. She grew up in Spanish Harlem and the Upper West Side. At the age of nine she began to write poems; she wrote her first song at age 14. Later she attended New York's prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, then at West 46th Street in Manhattan. (This school was seen in the feature film musical Fame). There she studied modern dance and graduated in 1977.
While majoring in English literature at Barnard College, she performed in small venues in Greenwich Village, where she was a regular contributor to the Monday night songwriters group at the Cornelia Street Cafe. In 1984, she received a major label record contract.
Vega's debut album, Suzanne Vega, was released in 1985 and was well received by critics in the US; it reached platinum status in Britain. Produced by Lenny Kaye and Steve Addabbo, the songs feature Vega's acoustic guitar in straightforward arrangements. Vega's writing often featured vignettes of characters and even inanimate objects, such as in "Small Blue Thing". A video was released for the album's song "Marlene on the Wall", which went into MTV and VH1's rotations.
Her next effort, Solitude Standing (1987), garnered critical and commercial success including two hit singles: "Tom's Diner", and "Luka." "Luka" is written about and from the point of view of a battered childat the time an uncommon subject for a pop hit. While continuing a focus on Vega's acoustic guitar, the music is more strongly pop-oriented and features fuller, more sensual arrangements. The a capella "Tom's Diner" was later a hit again, remixed by two British dance producers under the name DNA.
Vega's third album, Days of Open Hand (1990) signified a change in style: the music became more experimental, and the lyrics expressed greater emotion.
In 1992 she released the album 99.9F ("ninety-nine point nine Fahrenheit degrees "). It consists of an eclectic mixture of folk music, dance beats and industrial music.
Her fifth album, Nine Objects of Desire, was released in 1996. The music varies between a frugal, simple style and the industrial production of 99.9F. This album contains "Caramel", featured in the movie The Truth About Cats and Dogs and, later, the trailer for the movie Closer. A song not included on that album, "Woman on the Tier," was featured on the soundtrack of the movie Dead Man Walking.
September 2001 saw the release of a new album, Songs In Red and Gray. Three songs deal with Vega's divorce from record producer Mitchell Froom.
At the memorial concert for her brother Timothy Vega in December 2002, she began as the long-term subject of a direct cinema documentary, Some Journey, by director Christopher Seufert of Mooncusser Films.
In 2003, the 21-song greatest hits compilation Retrospective: The Best of Suzanne Vega was released. (The UK version of Retrospective included an eight-song bonus CD as well as a DVD containing twelve songs.) In the same year she was invited by Grammy Award-winning jazz guitarist Bill Frisell to play at the Century of Song concerts at the famed RuhrTriennale in Germany.
In 2003, she hosted the American Public Media radio series American Mavericks, about 20th century American composers, which received the prestigious Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting.
She signed with Blue Note Records in the spring of 2006. She is recording her 7th album in the fall of 2006, produced by Jimmy Hogarth, with the aim of releasing a new studio album in early 2007.
Vega has a daughter, Ruby Froom (born July 8, 1994). The band Soul Coughing's Ruby Vroom album took its name from her, with Suzanne's approval, though she requested a slight change.
On February 11, 2006, Vega married Paul Mills, a lawyer and a poet. They originally met each other at Folk City on West 4th Street in 1981. In their own words, Mr. Mills proposed to Miss Vega in May, 1983, and she accepted his proposal on Christmas Day, 2005.
On August 3, 2006, Vega became the first major recording artist to perform live in the online game, Second Life. The event was hosted by John Hockenberry of public radio's The Infinite Mind.
On September 17, 2006, she performed in Central Park as part of a benefit concert for The Save Darfur Coalition. During the concert she highlighted her support for Amnesty International, of which she has been a member for nearly a decade.
From October 3 to 5 2006 she took part in the Academia Film Olomouc (AFO) in Olomouc, the Czech Republic, the oldest festival of documentary films in Europe in which she appeared as a main guest. She was invited there as the subject of the documentary film by director Christopher Seufert that had a test screening with Q & A at the festival. At the end of the festival she performed her classical songs and added one brand new piece called "New York Is a Woman".
Suzanne Vega is also one of the interviewed persons in the book Everything Is Just a Bet which was published in Czech in October 2006. The book contains twelve interview transcriptions from the talk show called Stage Talks that regularly runs in the Svandovo Theatre in Prague, the Czech Republic. Suzanne Vega introduced the book to the audience of the Svandovo Theatre and together with some other Czech celebrities gave a signing session.
Vega's new album Beauty & Crime is set for release in July 2007 on Blue Note Records.
