Nashville, TN – For Atlantic Records/Word Entertainment recording artist Jason Castro, what you see is what you get – a quality that won over millions of viewers as a contestant on the seventh season of American Idol, parlaying his substantial singer/songwriter appeal into a third-place runner up finish. And now Castro is opening himself up to fans with a guaranteed statement record entitled Who I Am, to be released November 9 exclusively on his website, www.jasoncastromusic.com, and at all Christian retailers. This album is a unique collection of songs; featuring five fresh tracks including the new single “You Are” to hit the Christian AC airwaves in October, alongside five fan-favorites from his incredible self-titled debut album released this past spring.

Even though many of the songs are personal to him, Castro doesn’t mind giving listeners a view into his world “I feel like the album really captures my personality,” Castro says. “People got to know me a bit on the show, so I wanted to build on that by including all these songs I’ve written about my life. I wanted to share with people the things that are meaningful to me.”

This album includes tracks produced by both Eric Rosse (Tori Amos, Sara Bareilles) and Ian Eskelin (All Star United, Francesca Battistelli, Remedy Drive). Castro also collaborated with a host of top-notch songwriters — including Marc Roberge of O.A.R., Gregg Wattenberg (Five For Fighting), Zac Maloy (David Cook) and Espionage (Train) — all of whom helped Castro create an earthy showcase for his considerable gifts as a vocalist, songwriter and musician, not to mention the warmth and sincerity that shines through everything he does.

The end result is a exceptional collection of truly heartfelt songs about love that relays what Castro calls a positive message of love and acceptance, including his hit single “Let’s Just Fall In Love Again” and his stunning version of the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah.” Who I Am is an extension of the successful release of his self-titled album, which debuted at the #18 spot on the Billboard Top 200.

Also coming out on November 9 is the digital only five song EP entitled Changing Colors: Live From Studio 1290, which features live, full band acoustic versions of the songs “Changing Colors,” “If I Were You,” “It Matters To Me,” “Love Uncompromised” and his version of the Tom Petty tune ““Learning To Fly.” These songs were recorded in NYC in May 2010.

Jason Castro’s Changing Colors: Live From Studio 1290, full length version of Who I Am, and corresponding digital only EP edition of the same featuring the five new tracks; “What If I Fall,” “You Are,” “Changing Colors,” “Wait For A Miracle,” and “Who I Really Am” are all available now for pre-order via Castro’s website: www.jasoncastromusic.com.
