Muze PNote For the follow-up to her groundbreaking debut album, Vega made a wise move by incorporating her band further into the arrangement process. Thus, instead of delving deeper into her own introspective muse, she reaches outward to pursue a musical vision markedly expanded from the friendly folk-rock of the previous album. The dark, brooding influence of Leonard Cohen is felt more strongly here, as songs like the title track and "Night Vision" take the listener into a dark, moody world where unsettling emotions are described with moody, poetic flair.
Muze PNote SOLITUDE STANDING also featured Vega's breakthrough hit "Luka," a startlingly original, masterfully written first-person account of a young boy whose denial is the only way to deal with his parents' physical abuse. The song rightfully established Vega as an artist of the first order, and won her legions of international fans.

Artist Overview

In between the eras of Joni Mitchell and Alanis Morrisette, Suzanne Vega was the most important influence on blooming female singer-songwriters. Her cool, vibrato-less vocal style was decidedly forward-looking, and her lyrics owed more to modern poetry than singer-songwriter cliches. In the '80s, she helped rescue troubadourism from the clutches of sentimentality with her artful, intellectual work.
