REGINA SPEKTOR EMBARKS ON RARE U.S. SOLO TOUR THIS FALL

Regina Spektor will bring A Very Special Solo Performance to the U.S. this fall. Tickets for most shows go on sale July 14, see below for a complete list of dates.

Spektor recently completed a sold out spring tour across the United States in support of her critically acclaimed new release Remember Us To Life, out now on Sire/Warner Bros. Records. Purchase/stream the album HERE.

The tour garnered rave reviews from fans and press alike. The Santa Barbara Independent said Spektor “captivated audiences with impeccable storytelling and whimsical piano playing,” while the Portland Press Herald called the show “soul-moving,” claiming that Spektor “delivered a stunning performance.” The San Francisco Chronicle noted of Spektor’s inclusion in this year’s 50th Anniversary celebration of the Monterey International Pop Festival, “Her booking was an inspired one, as many audience found themselves in the audience unexpectedly singing along to songs.”

The album garnered critical praise from Esquire, NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, People and many more; see below for what the press has said.

In addition to the upcoming tour dates, fans can hear more from Spektor later this year as she makes guest appearances on new records from ODESZA and Gogol Bordello. Regina’s involvement in many projects from music, theatre, TV and film, such as the Hamilton Mixtape and Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black led the NY Post to declare Spektor a “key reference point in American pop culture.”

About Regina Spektor
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 honors. 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 LP, 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 No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Spektor’s songs have appeared in TV shows and movies including Orange Is The New Black, Grey’s Anatomy, Weeds, How I Met Your Mother, Veronica Mars, The Good Wife and (500) Days of Summer. Spektor 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.

REGINA SPEKTOR, REMEMBER US TO LIFE

“Our generation’s Joni Mitchell…has long made a habit of spinning fictional, winding tales into songs that utilize humor and absurdity for the purpose of pointed social commentary. Her new LP is no different.” –Esquire

“A pop eccentric wraps underdog storytelling in brilliant songcraft.”
–Rolling Stone

“[‘Black and White’ is] is a gorgeous, soaring ode to love and heartache.” –NPR Music

“[Remember Us To Life] includes everything from sophisticated piano-powered pop to R&B chants to orchestral arrangements.”–Entertainment Weekly

“‘Bleeding Heart’ is classic Regina Spektor whimsy and a sonic roller coaster, hitting peaks of bubbly pop, cruising through a sudden burst of drum-heavy rock, until it eventually slows down for some effective piano balladry.” –New York Magazine / Vulture

"The Moscow native has spent her life blending genres, and this eclectic seventh LP is no different.” –People

“In many ways it’s classic Spektor, lilting and lovely with percussive twists and glossy pop polish, but ‘Bleeding Heart’ also embraces nimble strings and surprising synths that skip throughout.” –Vice Noisey

“…a consistent pleasure—vocally audacious, fun, and when you least expect it, moving.” –The Huffington Post
