David Rybka

It has been a long time coming, however, and David Rybka  is no stranger to hard work. He has perfected his compositional style and live act over the course of thousands of performances (beginning when he was just fifteen years old) and this experience is obvious – so much so that within a year of his arrival in Manchester he was offered a recording deal by Elbow’s Guy Garvey to release a record on his label Skinny Dog.
