After last November’s tour sold-out and received universal praise, singer-songwriter Regina Spektor is set to return to the UK this summer for a tour which culminates with a London show at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo. 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 number three on the Billboard Album Chart.
