Editors’ Notes

Jason Castro’s third album shows how far the singer/songwriter has come since his flower child–like charm earned him a fourth-place finish on American Idol's seventh season. While he continues to radiate positive vibes in these tracks, Castro shows a new maturity as a vocalist and tunesmith. He continues the explorations of his Christian faith that began on his sophomore album, What I Am, with upbeat pop/rock numbers like “I Believe,” “Rise to You,” and the title track. The thoughtful “If It’s Love” and the smile-inducing “Good Love” find him tackling modern romance with clear vision and a warm heart. The recent birth of Castro’s daughter provides inspiration for the nurturing ballad “Enough.” “The Same Kind of Broken” (a vivid sketch of everyday life, featuring Mariah Peters on guest vocals) and “Safehouse” (a call to end human trafficking set to a pulsing piano-centered track) expand his reach into social commentary. Producers Ben Glover, David Garcia, and Matt Bronleewe allow room for Castro’s acoustic guitar and occasional ukulele while keeping the arrangements sleek, sparkling, and radio-friendly.

Customer Reviews

Just saw him in concert! He sings pitch perfectly!

Jason Castro is a genuine, kind, down-to-earth, and naturally talented musician. He performed at Northwestern College in Iowa and spoke about his faith and was very open to us. His music is gentle but moving and he sounds just like this cd in concert! He's a great guy to talk to, a great father and an excellent Christian artist.

With an acoustic guitar, dreadlocks, and a flower child disposition, Jason Castro spun his singer/songwriter appeal into a fourth-place finish during American Idol's 2008 season. Castro was the first artist to play an instrument on the show, and he used his guitar skills throughout the competition, accompanying himself during laid-back performances of "I Shot the Sheriff," "Daydream," and "Travelin' Thru." Although he ultimately finished behind rivals Sayesha Mercado, David Archuleta, and David Cook,...
