I’m probably one of the only people on the planet who doesn’t watch American Idol, so the name Jason Castro meant nothing to me before I was contacted to review his new self titled CD.
Quite honestly I was a bit apprensive to listen to the dreadlocked singer as he appeared to be somewhat of a hooligan to this middle aged mama, but I figured I’d give the tracks a once over and send my regrets to the company that contacted me and let them know, his songs just weren’t for me.
To my complete surprise, I loved the tracks on the CD and his voice is amazing. I listened to the songs over and over again, and since I was only able to stream the music (not download), I may just have to get this new CD!
Jason’s debut album was released on April 13th. I encourage you to take a listen to some of the previews of the tracks if you have your head in the sand like me and haven’t heard him sing before, specifically his Idol hit “Over the Rainbow”.
