"Tommy Castro has quickly emerged as one of the hottest, most exciting new artists on the blues scene. Backed by one of the tightest, most electrifying bands in the business, his masterful guitar and soulful vocals, charismatic stage presence and ability to write highly infectious and potent tunes mark Castro as an artist on the verge of a huge breakthrough.
With two critically-acclaimed and best-selling Blind Pig albums to their credit, Tommy and his band already have a strong national profile that goes well beyond the blues world. Tommy's growing prominence and the mainstream appeal of his music have resulted in weekly appearances on national television (the group was just signed for their third season as house band for NBC-TV's ""Comedy Showcase""), performances at major music festivals in the U.S. and Europe, and the use of his music in television shows such as ""Nash Bridges"" and ""The Young And The Restless"".
Castro's latest release, Right As Rain, is his best yet. Featuring eight radio-friendly originals and guest appearances by Dr. John and Delbert McClinton, Right As Rain is sure to garner rave reviews, strong radio play and outstanding sales. "
Reviews"A gifted lead guitarist firmly in touch with his lyrical voice, Castro writes an alluring blend of straight-ahead blues and Memphis-style soul. While he has his own definable sound, Castro calls to mind great blues-rock players such as Billy Gibbons of Z.Z. Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even Duane Allman." - Blues Revue
