Here I talk with one of my all-time musical heroes, Suzanne Vega.
We are in a hotel restaurant and there is some background noise. Just a warning. What a thrill to meet her and speak with her. I flew to Sydney recently to see the band show and then saw her again in Wellington.
The day after the Wellington show she agreed to meet with me for a chat for the podcast.
Her songs have been with me most of my life and so it was simply a great thrill to speak with her, to have the chance to talk – an interview, but also just a conversation.
We start with her telling me she liked my review, and me gushing and explaining that I’ve been listening to her since I was 10 years old.
From there we go through her career.
I hope you enjoy this conversation. It was certainly a great thrill and my absolute pleasure to meet Suzanne Vega and have this chat.
