BIO & REVIEWS
"A tunesmith of almost scary vision, narrative acumen and hooky instinct... writing songs is utterly programmed into his DNA"
- Rick Koster, The New London (CT) Day
"A rising Americana stand-out (his songs are) packed full of imagery and interesting chord progressions, all layered over some close harmonies and rhythms that are sometimes textbook country and sometimes a little more funky.”
- Folk Alley
"Hollow Bones in Monotone was the best Folk album of 2007. The Drenched Earth Tour was one of the greatest musical experiences of my life."
- Shawn Henderson (106.1 fm WSCA)
"His songs are so well-written, they never seem sparse, despite their minimal production."
- The Cleveland Free Times
"A broken 'cotton leather pouch bucket guitarist' — that’s folk for genius."
- The Erie Wire
"Chris Castle sings his unique songs of depth and beauty with a voice well textured by life's experiences."
- Tommy Ramone (The Ramones)
"The Ohio Troubadour writes and sings in a style that combines elements of rock, country and folk with a literary slant that recalls the best work of Eric Brace, Peter Cooper and Buddy Miller."
- No Depression
