Tommy Castro's New Album "Hard Believer" Out August 11
Alligator Records has set an August 11 street date for Hard Believer, the label debut from blues, rock and R&B singer, songwriter and guitarist Tommy Castro. Castro, winner of the 2008 Blues Music Award for Entertainer Of The Year, is famed not only for his hard-hitting, impassioned vocals, soaring guitar work and his blues-infused, rocking R&B sound, but also for his striking, original songwriting and exhilarating stage show. According to The San Francisco Chronicle, "Castro navigates seriously funky Southern soul, gritty big city blues and scorching rock...his silvery guitar licks simultaneously sound familiar and fresh." Castro, booked by the famed Rosebud Agency, will be hitting the road hard -- kicking off his 2009 tour on August 9 in Duluth at the Bayfront Blues Festival, playing festivals and clubs all across the U.S. and Canada.
