Regina Spektor performs live at Bonnaroo 2010!

Russian-born, Bronx-bred singer-songwriter Regina Spektor shares Tori Amos‘ ability to convey tenderness, melancholy and bone-deep weirdness in a single breathy note. But Spektor’s pop sensibilities are even sharper than those of her most commonly acknowledged predecessor: She’s got unmistakable warmth and a pronounced sunny side to go with her impeccable phrasing, which finds her crafting and subtly bending every note, whether she’s pining for faded memories or honking like a dolphin. Spektor’s newest album, 2009’s Far, is a superb showcase for both her eccentricity and her accessibility. Hear Spektor perform live from the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
