Imagine a spirited, eleven-year-old girl. A girl who simply loves to sing, everywhere. She learns guitar songs, she plays the ukulele. When the chords are hard, she doesn’t give up; she keeps practicing and believing in herself. This week, a very excited Ruby Jean Gardner came to Verkstad to record two songs in her Poppop’s music studio. Over the course of two days, working alongside John, Ruby came to truly understand the power of both her own voice and the world of recorded music. Every Adele, every Judy Collins, every Joan Baez experienced a “first” recording session - that time when they realized that their voice was bigger than they ever imagined. These are Ruby’s first recorded songs.
