Regina Spektor

Song: Us
Album: Soviet Kitsch
Genre:  Anti-folk, indie rock, baroque pop, blues, pop
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/reginaspektor
Last.Fm: http://www.last.fm/music/Regina+Spektor

Regina Spektor was born on 18th February 1980, in Moscow, ex-USSR, and moved to the United States when she was nine. Spektor studied classical piano from the age of six, practising on a Petrof piano given to her mother by her grandfather. She was also exposed to the music of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles, Queen, and The Moody Blues by her father, who obtained such recordings in Eastern Europe and traded cassettes with friends in the Soviet Union. – Excerpt from Last.Fm

Spektor’s songs are not usually autobiographical, but rather are based on scenarios and characters drawn from her imagination. Her songs show influences from folk, punk, rock, Jewish,Russian, hip hop, jazz, and classical music. Spektor has said that she works hard to ensure that each of her songs has its own musical style, rather than trying to develop a distinctive style for her music as a whole. – Excerpt from Wikipedia
