Regina Spektor is an artist who spent the first nine years of her life in Moscow before moving to Russia and being introduced to American culture. As a young gurl, she learned to play the piano and carried on her passion for music and classical piano when she studied at the SUNY Purchase Music Conservatory in New York. Regina has since then gained a ton of popularity for her unique musical construction, bright voice and personal lyrics.
Regina’s latest album (released May 2012) is called “What we Saw from the Cheap Seats,” and features the single “All the Rowboats” (above). “Us” (below) is from her 2004 album “Soviet Kitsch.”
I like to listen to Regina Spektor on cloudy or rainy days because the music seems to admire the heavy raindrops and grey skies.
