Suzanne Vega

Vega performing in 2016 Suzanne Nadine Vega ( Peck; born July 11, 1959) is an American singer-songwriter of folk-inspired music. Vega's music career spans almost 40 years. In the mid-1980s and 1990s she released four singles that entered the Top 40 charts in the UK, "Marlene on the Wall", "Left of Center", "Luka" and "No Cheap Thrill".

"Tom's Diner", which was originally released as an ''a cappella'' recording on Vega's second studio album, ''Solitude Standing'' (1987), was remixed in 1990 as a dance track by English electronic duo DNA with Vega as featured artist, and it became a Top 10 hit in five countries. The original ''a cappella'' recording of the song was used as a test during the creation of the MP3 format. The role of her song in the development of the MP3 compression prompted Vega to be given the title of "The Mother of the MP3".

Vega has released nine studio albums, the most recent being 2016’s ''Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers''. Provided by Wikipedia
