Regina Spektor is a Russian-born American singer-songwriter and pianist, she has a net worth of $12 million. Regina Spektor has earned her net worth from her early performances in the anti-folk scene in downtown New York City, she often performed as part of a duo with drummer Anders Griffen, and most importantly at the East Village's Sidewalk Cafe, and several other hot spots including: the Living Room, Tonic, Fez, the Knitting Factory, and CB's Gallery. She also performed at local colleges including Sarah Lawrence College along with other musicians, such as the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. During this time she sold self-published CDs at her performances. In 2004, she released her third album Soviet Kitsch after signing a deal with Warner Brothers' record label Sire Records to distribute the album that was originally self-released in 2003. Spektor was born in Moscow, USSR on February 18, 1980, to a musical family of Russian Jewish descent. Ilya Spektor, her father is a photographer and amateur violinist, and Bella Spektor, her mother was a music professor in a Russian college of music and now teaches elementary school in a Mount Vernon, New York, public school. Regina has one brother Barry who is nick-named Bear; during the period of Perestroika she and her family left Russia. Eventually the family moved to The Bronx, after being admitted to the United States as refugees, with help from HIAS (the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). She studied classical piano in New York with a professor at the Manhattan School of Music, Sonia Vargas, until she was 17. Spektor was originally interested only in classical music however; she later became interested in hip-hop, rock and punk. After she was exposed to songs written by Joni Mitchell and Ani DiFranco, she became confident that she too could write songs. At the young age of 16 she wrote her first a cappella songs and her first songs for voice and piano when she was almost 18.
Regina Ilyinichna Spektor (Russian: ?????a ????????? ???????, IPA: [r??'??in? 'sp??kt?r], English: /r?'d?i:n? 'sp?kt?r/; born February 18, 1980) is an American singer-songwriter and pianist. Her music is associated with the anti-folk scene centered in New York City's East Village.
Spektor was born in Moscow, Soviet Union in 1980 to a musical Russian Jewish family. Her father, Ilya Spektor, is a photographer and amateur violinist. Her mother, Bella Spektor, was a music professor in a Soviet college of music and now teaches at a public elementary school in Mount Vernon, New York. She has a brother Barry (Bear), who was featured in track 7, "* * *", or "Whisper", of her 2004 album, Soviet Kitsch.
She learned how to play piano by practicing on a Petrof upright that was given to her mother by her grandfather. She was also exposed to the music of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles, Queen, and The Moody Blues by her father, who obtained such recordings in Eastern Europe and traded cassettes with friends in the Soviet Union. The family left the Soviet Union in 1989, when Regina was nine and a half, during the period of Perestroika, when Soviet citizens were permitted to emigrate. Regina had to leave her piano behind. The seriousness of her piano studies led her parents to consider not leaving the USSR, but they finally decided to emigrate, due to the ethnic and political discrimination that Jews faced. Spektor is fluent in Russian and reads Hebrew, and has since paid tribute to her Russian heritage, quoting the poem February by the Russian poet Boris Pasternak in her song Apres Moi, and stating "I'm very connected to the language and the culture."
Traveling first to Austria and then Italy, the family was admitted to the United States as refugees with the assistance of HIAS (the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) and settled in The Bronx, where Spektor graduated from the SAR Academy, a Jewish day middle school in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. She then attended
