About the Album: Tony Rybka "Walking Back to Heaven"
Mission to Moab Records review by Daddo
If James Taylor did blues, with a little bit of pop backing, it might sound like this. If this sounds great to you, please to enjoy the entire disc. If not . . . well, track #6 “Waitin’ on a Train” is pretty good. reviews.wruv.org/2012/12/walking-back-to-heaven/WRUV Reviews "
"Review By:
Jose Gonzalez
Tony Rybka is a folksy blues writer, and his album “ Walking back to Heaven” keeps that tone. Songs like “ My 666th Dream”, “The Birthday Song” just has that blues attitude with its steady beat, and classic guitar playing. Tony Rybka also slows things down, and changes the tempo with “I’ll get over you”, “ Since The Angels Called”, and the darker/sorrowful side of blues is given. The lyrics are what makes this album, because you get Tony’s story, and you can feel what he has gone through. " - Jose Gonzalez, KTSW 89.9 FM
"Hi Tony, Well, it has taken me awhile but I recently listened to your CD "Walking Back to Heaven." You sent it to me a while back. It's very, very good. I think you would be good on the radio! I plan on playing a few cuts, probably "666" "Train" and "Blame." "

"I’m loving your cd as much as I thought I would. Your music is intoxicating - romantic sometimes, nostalgic in places, the images evocative. The lyrics are pure poetry, but poetry that rolls out easily and doesn’t try too hard. The singing is powerful, the chord changes just right, all the talent top-notch. I can identify with these songs, feel like I’ve lived them... " -
RM from Austin, TX
"Just dropped by to listen to your music and love what I hear. As of to date, "Never Say Goodbye" is my favorite.... Great job, please keep up the good works cause the world needs more of it! "

DS from somewhere in NC "Oh, one more thing: During Friday's show I made the argument that modern, indie-folk singer Tony Rybka was "Dylanesque", and I even ventured to argue that he was "better than Bob Dylan". I would encourage you to engage in a hearty debate with me by googling Rybka, listening to his music, and judging for yourself. You in? " - DJ CelticED (Edward Burke) WWPV 88.7 FM “The Mike”
