It's an exciting time for him, and I'm excited about what's next for him with the release of Onward & Upward." - Gian Fiero, Working in the Music Industry

"On 'One Day' you play a duet with Jonny Zywiciel. Do you have an artist you would have liked to sing with in the past or even today?
Bobby: Ray Charles !! In fact I’m doing a tribute CD with his daughter next year. There is one thing I do want to say about "One Day"…originally John Zaika had reached out to Richard Page from Mr. Mister to sing the verses that Jonny Zywiciel ended up recording, but Richard was called into last minute rehearsals for the Ringo Starr All Star Band, so John Zaika had to change it up and the decision was made to bring in the young gun, Jonny, who is a very talented singer and a great guitar player out of San Francisco… turned out to be the perfect decision." - Interview with Bobby Kimball in Rock Rebel Magazine

"Everyone reacts differently to their first love lost. Singer-songwriter Jonny Zywiciel (that's "Zuh-witch-ul") took to mending his broken heart by making an album to uplift himself and listeners. His and the trials of close friends fighting cancer and drug addiction inspired the song "Time to Heal"—a pop-rock melody delivering a message of hope. Zywiciel assures, "we know that we will rise above this plane, we know that we will stand up with strength. Everything is gonna be alright, everyone is gonna be just fine." The San Francisco-based musician's encouraging anthem is the first single off his Onward & Upward album (available November 4). He is donating 100% of all "Time to Heal" proceeds to the Amy Winehouse Foundation (, supporting at-risk youth to "reach their full potential" through a number of outlets including music and education. "The world needs healing more than ever," says Zywiciel on his website. Ain't that the truth." - Monterey County Weekly
