Rafael Toral, Musician

It is a rewarding experience to work with Todd. B. Gruel. Our correspondence over three months transpired into a long-form interview which covered much of my music career. I feel very grateful that Mr. Gruel turned this interview into a beautifully written and thorough article about my work, offering the readers of Tiny Mix Tapes insights that surprised even myself. His attention to detail and uncompromising commitment bring a level of accuracy to his writing that I am not used to seeing my work receive. Adding to that, an impeccable phrasing and a captivating sense of poetry make it no less than a privilege to have one’s own work written about under his talents. He truly serves music well.
