The music has lots of room to breath, allowing each instrument to really speak for itself and be heard and appreciated fully. “Bumble Bee” is a co-write between JP Ruggieri and Abbie Gardner.

It’s a perfect first taste of the great music that JP Ruggieri has recorded on his debut record.


“This song was written with my friend Abbie Gardner of Red Molly. We got together and she had the lyrics of the first verse and read them to me. I instantly fell in love with them and the melody just poured out. Musically, I was really going for a Ry Cooder type feel on this song. We recorded it as “open” as we could, to try and make the listener feel as though they were in the room with the band.”
