Two of Vega's songs (both from her second album Solitude Standing, 1987) reached the top 10 of various international chart listings: " Luka" and "Tom's Diner".
Though born in California, Vega has lived most of her life in New York City.
There, she attended the High School of the Performing Arts (the school seen in the feature film musical Fame), where she studied modern dance. Read more about Suzanne Vega on Last.fm.
