Based in the United States, Regina Spektor was born on February 18, 1980, in Moscow, still in the former Soviet Union. From a family linked to music, the singer, composer and pianist began to be interested in classical music. However, over time, blues, jazz, rock and pop entered the artist's life.
Revealed within the indie scene in the early 2000s, Regina Spektor has anti-folk as the main reference for her music. Between 2003 and 2005, she opened for bands such as Strokes, Kings of Leon and Keane.
