After last November’s sell out tour along with universal praise, singer-songwriter Regina Spektor is set to return to the UK this summer for a tour! The tour represents her second UK tour in support of her critically acclaimed seventh album ‘Remember Us To Life’.
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 honours.
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. Spektor’s commercial breakthrough came in 2006 on her fourth album ‘Begin to Hope’. The Gold-certified album included the singles ‘On the Radio’, ‘Better’ and ‘Fidelity’ which climbed the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Spektor’s fifth album, ‘Far’ released in 2009, and sixth album, ‘What We Saw From the Cheap Seats’ released in 2012 both debuted at #3 on the Billboard Album Chart.
Spektor’s songs have appeared in TV shows and movies including ‘Orange Is The New Black’, the Academy Award nominated 2016 animated film ‘Kubo and The Two Strings’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Weeds’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, ‘Veronica Mars’, ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘(500) Days of Summer’. Spektor also 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.
