Soul-baring, roadhouse-meets-church, Memphis guitar licks
Castro is one of the brightest stars in the blues-soul genre. Voracious blues energy and ultimate soul power . . . impassioned vocals and pure inventiveness in his stellar guitar solos.
—Blues Music Magazine
Sizzling, slow-burning, gritty blues and rock . . . shimmering, swampy, downright funky vibes drenched with Castro’s stinging, pure and crisp lead runs and fluid, jet-fueled solos.
Throughout his long, constantly evolving career, guitarist, singer, and songwriter Tommy Castro has always remained true to himself while exploring, growing, and creating new music. Since his solo debut in 1994, he has made 16 albums—the last seven for Alligator. Ranging from horn-fueled R&B to piping hot blues to fiery, stripped-down rock ’n’ roll, each release is solidly built upon Castro’s unshakable musical foundation—a dynamic mix of 1960s-influenced guitar-fueled blues, testifying Memphis-soaked blue-eyed soul, and Latin-tinged East San Jose funk, all driven by Castro’s grab-you-by-the-collar vocals and passionate guitar work.
For Castro’s new album, a roots music odyssey entitled Tommy Castro Presents A Bluesman Came To Town, he tells a timeless story of a young man working on his family farm who gets bitten by the blues bug. This special project was composed by Castro along with Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge. On the album release tour, Castro and the Painkillers perform fan favorites as well as songs from the new album.
