Regina Spektor.

Read More......

Everyone needs to go and check out Regina Spektor's music, if they have not done so already. She is quickly heading to be my favourite artist ever (as opposed to Fiona Apple or Tori Amos). She recently released a compliation of her previous albums ("Mary Ann Meets the Gravediggers and Other Short Stories") in the UK, as they were all US-only, and is releasing another CD worldwide in a month or so called "Begin to Hope." So no excuses!

She's awesome, mostly piano but also a bit of guitar and drums too, and has the most amazing voice I have ever heard. She has songs that are personal, as well as ones that tell stories, brilliant and original lyrics, both quirky and more serious. I saw her live on Valentine's Day in Colchester, and both I and Pete were blown away completely.

You can also find mp3s of a few of her live gigs here, as well as a live video of her performance for Xfm here - make sure you check them out, you will not be disappointed.
