Pianist and singer Regina Spektor, born in Moscow in 1980, is one of the protagonists of the New York anti-folk scene. She began to write her first songs at only 16 and then decided to study music, graduating with honors in 2001. She then went on to perform in the New York clubs in which the anti-folk wave sparked.

She published her first two albums herself and signed a record deal with Sire Records in 2004 where she released her third album “Soviet Kitsch”. During this time, she supported the Strokes on their European tour after being personally invited to by Julian Casablanca. The studio albums “Begin to Hope” (2006), “Far” (2009) and “What We Saw From The Cheap Seats” (2012) followed.

Her sound is influenced by various genres such as classic, folk, punk rock, klezmer, hip-hop, jazz and Russian folklore. Her singing can vary from classic beauty to beat box parts. But what is most outstanding about Regina Spektor is her broad instrumental talent.
