'Once in a while, and honest song gets written. On Walking Backward once in while happens quite a few times.' David Weiss, Manhattan Mirror 'Grimaldi's lyrical flair is his best asset. It's an enticement to visit this noteworthy debut album.' Larry Flick, Billboard 'With a commanding baritone voice and keen ability to mix melody and rhythm, the openly gay Grimaldi relies on a range of '70's influences in his debut release...Grimaldi's roots are obvious, but his sound is distinctly his own.' Harriet L. Schwartz, PGN.
