Jerry Castle debuts “Calm” from Desperate Parade in Asheville’s Altamont Theatre ahead of national launch date

Nashville, TN (June 5, 2013) — He’s a reformed rocker with Americana roots and pop/folk stylings. Jerry Castle is set to launch his third full-length CD, titled Desperate Parade, Tues. June 25, and the first single, “Calm,” is building momentum well before the release is available at retail and digital outlets.

“[Calm] could be the breakout song of the summer in Americana music and country music circles,” is a quote at NoDepression.com by Kara Kennedy.

Castle appears live at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville Wed. June 19 at 9:00 p.m.  Then he heads back to Nashville for an official release party at 12th and Porter Thursday, June 20 with Don Gallardo & How Far West opening at 8:30.

The next morning Castle appears at 9:00 a.m. on Great Day Live on WHAS 11 in Louisville and takes the stage at 9:30 p.m. in Louisville’s Rudyard Kipling.

The Alternate Root named Castle in their list of Top East Nashville Artists Right Now alongside Elizabeth Cook, Todd Snider, and Gretchen Peters among others.  Blogcritic.org’s Jon Sobel wrote, “A good dose of sustenance for country music fans looking for something more earthy.”  Nashville Lifestyles Magazine featured “Desperate Parade,” alongside a moderate list of June releases; and “Calm” was streamed on Roughstock.com and moving up the Americana charts.

A native Virginian, Castle was raised in the small Appalachian town of Abingdon, and has lived in Nashville 14 years. When he headed into the studio in 2011 Castle had no idea it would take 18 months to complete Desperate Parade. Some of Nashville’s finest musicians including Bobby Keys (Rolling Stones, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton), Audley Free (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, Peter Frampton), and backing vocalist, Regina McCrary (Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Stevie Wonder) joined the project. Though this recording contains similar themes as those in his 2010 release, “Don’t Even Ask,” and “Back Side of Down” from 2004, Castle’s maturity as an artist shines through with more hope in “Calm,” “Precious Time,” and “Be The One” than other songs in his catalog.
