A “don’t miss” interview piece from Billboard

Jason on touring with his sibs:

[…] Jason says he couldn’t be happier.

“There’s no one else I’d rather travel with,” Castro tells Billboard. “Truth is, being on the road is a challenge for anybody with anybody and being with family kind of makes it a lot easier. It at least makes it feel a bit more like home, and I’m just excited to share this whole process with them.”

Check out the full article on Billboard.com. (It’s really good!)

Artist Spotlight

There’s a nice band profile on The Hudsucker:

Touching on themes such as dreaming big, finding happiness, and loving someone unrequitedly. Diamond Dreams is sure to have a song for every listener. As Jason states, that is Castro’s ultimate mission as makers of music: “Music has the power to transform a day, and the power to define a time. That’s our goal: to be that for somebody. To be the song.”

The Sibling Game!

It seems that Castro did a bunch of mini-interviews ‘n’ stuff for iHeartRadio, most of which has been been-and-gone on Snapchat…but here’s something I can post!

(It’s fun. Watch it!)

Hopefully there will be more (that I can post, not on Snapchat), and if there are, I will bring them.


Thanks for the find, Jasonized!

Buzzfeed reached out to American Idol alums

…to find out what the show meant to them, and got some 58 responses. Here’s a part of Jason’s:

I have been watching this season with my daughter, who is four and a half. […] When I was on there, I was not married, had no kids, and really, as I look around at my family now and the life that I have, it really is all because of American Idol. […] What an incredible opportunity I had to be able to make a great living doing what I love and be able to support my growing family by playing music.

There’s a nice interview in Florida Today

Here’s a sample:

Q: If you could go back and do one thing over in your career, what would it be and why?

A: There really isn’t anything I would do different. It has been an incredible journey and a learning experience. When I went on “American Idol,” I had only been singing and playing guitar for one year, so I have learned a lot along the way. I learned how the business works, and I learned how to be creative. I think the best is yet to come.

There’s lot’s of good stuff in the piece, so go and take a look.

Thanks for the video find, ArtTeacher and beckyvee, and the photos and Green Room video, Jasonized!

Interviews, they are happening

From Jackie Castro’s Instagram:

Jason asked me to come him this weekend to do a sibling interview. Didn’t find out until after the interview that it’s going to air on ABC [F]amily on a show that gets 1 million views. Excuse me what?
