Suzanne Vega: Godmother Of New Age

Len Brown, New Musical Express, 14 April 1990

Suzanne Vega was brought up as a Puerto Rican, attended the neo-legendary New York School Of Performing Arts and went on to become the sensitive singer/songwriter we all know and love. A New Ager when everyone else thought quartz crystals were only good for watches, she's now a regularly chanting Buddhist, and her "thirst for enlightenment" shines through her third LP, Days Of Open Hand.
