Chris Castle first garnered national attention in 2007 with the release of his critically-acclaimed album "Hollow Bones In Monotone". His 2012 release "Last Bird Home" made the Top 20 of several Americana/Roots radio charts and was one of the top 40 Americana albums of the year.

Twenty years prior, Castle was signing a Nashville staff writing deal at the age of fourteen. Growing up between Pentecostal churches and local bars, he was singing as soon as he could hold a microphone and fronting bar bands at nine years old. Like the New London Day once said "writing songs is utterly programmed into his DNA".

Castle has covered a great deal of ground since "The Old Rugged Cross" but Christian-Judaeo imagery and symbolism are still scattered throughout his songs. He's a literary songwriter, who can "deconstruct a song... like other people say their ABC's" (Jason Hamad- No Surf Music) but he never sheds the mythology or superstition of the eastern Kentucky preachers and bootleggers who raised him. It's an interesting mix, and it serves him well in building songs that are "an authentic connection to the world-weary soul of American Roots music" (Jim Vickers- Cleveland Magazine).
