Regina Spektor – Lady
Blues Women Anthology ,
Regina Ilyinichna Spektor (Russian: Реги́нa Ильи́нична Спе́ктор, IPA:; born February 18, 1980)is an American singer-songwriter and pianist. Her music is associated with the anti-folk scene centered on New York City’s East Village.
In New York City, Spektor studied classical piano with Sonia Vargas, a professor at the Manhattan School of Music, until she was 17; Spektor’s father had met Vargas through her husband, violinist Samuel Marder. Although the family had been unable to bring their piano from Russia, Spektor found a piano on which to play in the basement of her synagogue, and also practiced on tabletops and other hard surfaces.
