  • Description
Tommy Castro is a soulful singer and stinging guitarist. Method to My Madness is a fine collection of gritty, funky, and rocking originals and covers. -- Boston Globe
"The Californian's latest album represents a high-water mark in his career. Indomitable spirit informs his songs about optimism in dark times or the role of luck in romantic matters - he is offering some of his catchiest original material ever." – DownBeat
Castro plays gritty, string bending blues like a runaway soul train. A glorious blend that rocks the soul and lifts the spirits....Potent painkillers from a musical madman. -- No Depression
Tommy Castro put on a sterling and thoroughly professional performance, with original material and some fine guitar work on display. Among the cream of the crop of what modern blues has to offer. -- Blues & Rhythm No. 304
Tommy Castro puts the fun and funky in the blues. Crank it up…the songs bear the standards of traditional fiery blues but take a more soulful approach, with smooth lyrics and melodies you feel rather than just hear. -- Daily Herald (Chicago)
Hot on the heels of Tommy Castro & the Painkillers' 2014 CD, The Devil You Know, Method To My Madness (Alligator Records, October 2015) continues in the tradition of Castro's muscular, sparse style while moving into new territory -- more R & B, and a bit of Southern rock, funk and boogie. The Shedd's pleased to welcome Castro and his crew back. Don't miss it.
