Playing the piano has always been a part of Russian-born Regina Spektor's life. She grew up in a family of musicians with her father, a violinist, and her mother, a music professor. She took piano lessons in Russia until 1989 when her family moved via Austria and Italy to the Bronx, where she continued studying classical piano.

Regina Spektor released her first album "11:11" in 2001 and has just released her fifth album "Far."

Songs performed: "Folding Chair," "Laughing With," and "Blue Lips."
