Who are They? Christina Rubino. A Brooklyn native and musician known for her guitar playing and lead vocals in groups Snacp Dragaon & Petticoat, Violator (a NYC Depeche Mode cover band), and Josephine. After taking a hiatus from music she returned to the studio in collaboration with friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Francine Bianco (White) as one half of the folk duo, Ruby and White. Midway into recording a 5- Song EP, Bianco left to pursue a post-graduate degree. Rather than crap the project all together, Rubino decided to lay down intense and personal songs that she composed before and after her abrupt departure from the music scene. From there her first full-length solo album, Alive from the Scrapheap was born. It was released this past January.
