“Have You Heard of Jason Castro?”

The other day a friend of mine emailed me one question: “Have you heard of Jason Castro?” Being who I am, I immediately Googled the name and discovered a singer with a pretty groovy vibe. Jason Castro was on American Idol season seven and hails from the Dallas, Texas area which is where my friend is currently living.

Now I have to admit, I never watch the show. Most reality television is not my scene and even though this show is about music, something I truly enjoy, the two night a week commitment is far more television than I am willing to dedicate myself to most of the time. But, listening to him on You Tube, I can see why this Texan gained recognition.

His voice is sweet and he plays a string instrument, plus he has one of those smiles that girls dig and he’s an unconventional pop star with extra long dreadlocks. The boy has a very easy going sense about him as well. In essence, he’s got that “something”. That something is an album to be released early this year and the following is a single, released last year and due to be featured on the album, Let's Just Fall In Love Again. I think you’ll enjoy its lighthearted vibe as much as I did. Thanks for introducing me to his music Dianna!

I've just adored Jason Castro since the first time he took the Idol stage in a tight pair of jeans with a western shirt opened over a white tee singing Daydream. Can't wait for the tour and the full length CD which should be out in the Spring.
