“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.”
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.”
…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.
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.
@FJLibrio Thanks @jasoncastro for shooting a video for @USCMDallas. You were wonderful. And you sang for us! pic.twitter.com/2QjI8T1RvA
FYI: USCMDallas is the United States Conference of Mayors summer meeting in Dallas, this June. Will we ever get to see this one? You never know….
Thanks for the finds, ArtTeacher and Jasonized!
Castrocopia is run entirely by a couple of misfits. Although McLovin, Liz Lemon, and REReader are in the back pocket of the Castros, it should not be inferred that this site is sanctioned by the Castros. Tolerated, yes. Loved, who wouldn't? Our words are our own and we stick by them.
