New interview in the Chicago Sun-Times

If you still think of Jason Castro as the easygoing folkie from “American Idol,” his new album may surprise you.

For one thing, the dreadlocked singer from the show’s seventh season has picked up an electric guitar. For another, “Only a Mountain” depicts a young man more familiar with life’s struggles than he was three years ago when he released his first album.

New interview on Breathecast

From the interview:

Your first album was secular, so why did you decide to start discussing your faith in your music? Were you ever worried that would cut off some of your fan base?

[…][Only a Mountain] isn’t exclusively a Christian album, or a worship album. I did write it in such a way that all of my fans – and all people – would hear it and be inspired and encouraged

Interview with The Virginian-Pilot

Here’s one little excerpt:

People who have seen you perform on “Idol” probably see you as an acoustic musician. How will this performance be different?

I think there’s been an evolution in the sound. Now I’m playing an electric guitar, even though I start out with an acoustic guitar. I think the music is much more diverse with a little bit more rock. The heart of the music is still the same.
