      EVENT DETAILS
      Regina Spektor


      Born in the Soviet Union, Spektor began studying classical piano when she was six. Her family emigrated in 1989, landing in New York City, where she continued her classical training. Spektor eventually studied composition at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College where she graduated with honors. She began writing pop songs in her late teens and made her recorded debut in 2001 with the self-released 11:11, a collection of songs heavily influenced by jazz and blues. Songs followed in 2002 and Soviet Kitsch in 2004.Spektors commercial breakthrough came in 2006 on her fourth LP, Begin to Hope. The gold-certified album included the singles On the Radio, Better and Fidelity, which climbed the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Spektors fifth album, Far released in 2009, and sixth album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats released in 2012, both debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.Spektors songs have appeared in TV shows and movies including Orange Is The New Black, Greys Anatomy, Weeds, How I Met Your Mother, Veronica Mars, The Good Wife and (500) Days of Summer. Spektor played for the Obamas and guests at the White House and performed as part of philanthropic campaigns for Tibet, Doctors Without Borders, and many more. In September 2016 Spektor released her seventh album, Remember Us To Life. The album has received extensive critical praise. Rolling Stone declared that Remember Us To Life wraps underdog storytelling in brilliant songcraft and Esquire described Regina as our generations Joni Mitchell adding that (Spektor) has long made a habit of spinning fictional, winding tales into songs that utilize humor and absurdity for the purpose of pointed social commentary. Her new LP is no different.
