Virginia Rubino has recorded her first solo album with Dreamsicle Arts & Entertainment under the loving care of Producers Vinx De’Jon Parrette, Michael Hurwitz and Paul Venzia. Combining blues, reggae, latin, eclectic, and jazz influences into a sound that is uniquely Virginia…and lyrics that are stream of consciousness to stories of a life lived both tough and crazy. The album highlights Virginia’s vocal and keyboard skills and features musicians from Brazil, via the Berklee College of Music, as well as guest artists Mike Wingfield, percussion, and Jasmin Telfair, flute. This CD will be released in April 2014.
