"Hitting the top of Sweden’s iTunes chart during Stockholm Pride Week, Erik Toro’s single “The Right” features the indie singer-songwriter as he makes an emphatic defense of LGBT rights worldwide. Intended as a commentary on the struggles of Uganda and Russia’s queer communities, according to Toro, the song features the musician as he dances and croons his way from a maudlin piano track amidst a black and white background to a powerful anthem set to explosions of color from all over the rainbow." - OUT MAGAZINE, 12th of August, 2014
"Not his first time approaching LGBT rights, “The Right” joins Toro’s “If I Pray,” which was written from the perspective of the victim of an anti-LGBT hate crime in his last moments of life. Dedicated to hate crime victims such as Matthew Shephard and Daniel Zamudio, it features a more consistently dour track than “The Right,” yet holds a twinge of hope for what the protagonist’s prayers might achieve."

"I had the pleasuring of meeting Erik Toro singing back-up vocals on his singles “The Right” and “If I Pray.” I was very touched by the messages in his songs and also really impressed with both his piano and vocal skill. Erik’s voice is extremely passionate, which brings his music to a whole new level. Erik offers deep, emotional songs with strong messages that seem to be aimed at making the world a better place. They are so inspirational that it might just happen!" - Leah Harris, Singer/Songwriter
