  1. My mother-in-law was just telling me about a radio interview she heard with Jason Castro. He was discussing how he wanted to make an album for the Christian market, and I kept saying, “Are you sure you don’t mean Chris Sligh?”. I was sure the woman was senile or hearing things or something. Looks like she scooped me on Idol news, which kind of baffles and humbles me. Good luck to Jason, though!

  2. I expected Jason to possibly go this route, mainly because of this video done a couple of years back. For whatever reason, I’m having a hard time linking to it, but it’s on youtube. Type in Jason Castro I Am Second at youtube, or maybe someone here can link it. After listening, you’ll see how it is a perfect fit for him and probably always has been due to his testimony.

  3. I have most of the songs (from his other album and EP). I checked out the new songs and I do like a few from the new EP and even the Christian album (not usually into that genre). I like You Are, Who I Am, and I really like What If I Fall (I originally thought it could have crossover appeal but there is more “God theme” lyrics than I first noticed).

  4. I’m gonna check his new songs. I always liked his voice.

    Nice cover. I like it better than the first one.

  5. You just never know what genre an artist MIGHT catch fire in.He looks really attractive on that cover pic.Chris Sligh has done tremendously well in this market,so we’ll just have to wait,and see…
    His pal Archie will likely have to change genres,too-after the disastrous recent album-hopefully he goes into Luis Miguel-style Latino love songs,cuz that’s David A’s best shot now IMO…

  6. I really like Jason and hope he does well. I hope that he does not do just Christian music as it does limit him. That is just my opinion. I think almost all of the idols are going to have issues with their albums sales not just Archie. Maybe the new idol will do OK because I am sure they will be someone that is more young and pop.

  7. I checked out the two new releases and bought “You Are” and “What if I Fall” from Who I Am, and ‘Changing Colors” and “It Matters to Me” from the acoustic CD.
    And for good measure I went back to the Deluxe version of Jason Castro and bought “Heart of Stone” and “All Wrapped up”< – cute songs I didn't have already.

    Geez, you should pay more attention to my tweets =P you would have known ages before your mother-in-law! Haha. I finally got to hear Jason on my car radio when Klove played ‘You Are”. I’m happy he’s getting even more recognition by being a crossover artist.. hmm (you know what I’m thinking w/ those crossover artists. Hehe)

  9. Niiiiice! Great bonus video of “Redemption Song”. Thanks for the pics too!

  10. Jason has been invited to sing @ Kurt Bestor’s Annual Christmas Show in Salt Lake City,Utah. Kurt is a well respected musician in Salt Lake City and has helped with music and writing for “pal” Archie’s Christmas From the Heart. The Program is scheduled @ the same time as Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Show that David A will be singing at. Many of David A fans are going to both while they are in town to see David. I think Kurt schedules his @ the same time because he gets the overflow of those that can’t get tickets to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (80,000 ticket with 1 1/2 million of us trying to get tickets)……………………….
    David and Jason won’t get to see each other’s concert but their fans can. If Jason fans are interested I believe Kurt has opened up a special rate for Arhies-check his web site. check dates too! I think it’s Dec.16,17,18,,19 but double check.
