Musical artist from Russia. Mostly prevelant on the indie scene until her single "Fidelity," which reached video-watching fame on Youtube and was then voted #1 song of 2006 on SIRIUS Radio's Left of Center program.
Spektor experiments with several non-mainstream vocal techniques, most famously the glottal stop from "Fidelity." She's also just pretty experimental in general, known for her poetic lyrics and softer sounds.
Some of her songs are really just weird. Others are really just nice. She says she's written over 700 songs, so you have a long time to look for something that works for you.
Non-musical person: God, Regina Spektor can't sing. Have you heard her? She's so annoying!
Musical person: Actually, I respect her nearly perfect tone, rhythm-sensitive ear, and singing ability.
"This is how it works
You're young until you're not
You love until you don't
You try until you can't
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath" - "On the Radio" by Regina Spektor, one of her other more well-known songs.
