Suzanne is best known for her songs ‘Marlene On The Wall’, ‘Tom’s Diner’, ‘Luka’ and ‘Solitude Standing’. The Brisbane show has been added to her string of national dates for Perth, Cairns, Melbourne and Sydney as well as her Bluesfest performance. Suzanne Vega will perform at the Powerhouse, Brisbane on April 14.
The tour will coincide with the release of Suzanne’s new album ‘Tales form the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles’. It is her first album in seven years.
The album was recorded with Gerry Leonard, David Bowie’s musical director for more than a decade. Gail Ann Dorsey and Zachary Alford, both Bowie veterans, guest on the record. Strings for the album were recorded in the Czech Republic with the Smikov Chamber Orchestra.
‘Tales form the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles’ will be released in February.
