Season 7 Idol alum, Jason Castro, has signed with Word records. His debut album was released on Atlantic in 2010, but when Christian radio and retailers expressed an interest in Jason’s music, Word came on board to re-package his album for the Christian market. Who Am I hit stores in November of 2010
Now it’s been decided Word will lead the way on Jason’s sophomore release.
“We’ve been working together for a long time,” says Jason “After awhile, we all came to the conclusion that, for this next record, it might be good for Word to lead the way.”
“It all fell into place in a really natural way,” he says. “And I’m not try to just go and become a ‘Christian artist.’ That’s never been my goal. So this next album, I think it’ll be a continuation of what we started on the first album, just a much truer version.”
Jason plans to enter the studio in April or May to record the new album. He hopes to release in September. “I’ve been doing a lot of writing over the last few months.”
