“For those who are fans of Cat Power, Johnny Cash and Shelby Lynn - we promise you are in for a treat with this talented artist.”
“Christina Rubino is the real deal, genuine, true, bold, and a renegade.”
"The album is a personal look into the life of someone who has been to hell and back and has the voice to give the listener an idea of just what she's been through, (A)Live from the Scrapheap is a fantastic debut for Christina Rubino. "
"Christina’s music and words mellifluously pour out of her with a candid intimacy that could only come from someone that’s been there. Some people go their whole lives with a Dylanesque old-soul wisdom, and never find it in themselves to express their flaws and frailties with such fortitude."
"Drenched in soulful acoustic bluesy americana, (A)Live From The Scrapheap is the result of Ms. Rubino pouring her life into sound frequencies. Rubino is a female Johnny Cash. A tasty brew 2 parts Patty Griffin, 1 part Cat Power, with a little bit of Shelby Lynn sprinkled on top."
“Listening to Rubino's music is similar to listening to deep and heavy poetry. Her lyrics are filled with emotion and soul, which really captivate the audience to bring emotion out of the listeners as well.”
“If you are drawn to deep melodic, dark and heavy harmonial acoustic folk songs with piercing vocals, but lingering with intense feel of struggle similar to the likes of Norah Jones, Janis Joplin, Beth Gibbons, Carly Simon, and Odetta, this album will surely fit right into your melancholy afternoon coffee reading sessions.”
"Christina Rubino can attest to the fact that all it takes is one brief and even minuscule flash of influence to set you on a path that you feel destined to follow. "
"In case I haven’t made it abundantly clear, Ms. Rubino can sing – both in the harmonic and spiritual sense of that word." "As it stands, this is an earnest and eminently likeable album."
"A final note about what I call channel changers. This talented and beautiful songstress is New Yorker born and bred. Yet she brings us this album of beautiful music from a country heart. She is a very talented visual artist as well, channelling something from someplace that may not be readily available to those who have not accepted their remote controls yet."
"Christina Rubino has a great and powerful voice that is laced over crafty meaningful lyrics."
“A New York native, Christina Rubino dishes us her take on singer/songwriter and indie musics with her beautiful voice and acoustic guitar.”
