Title - ‘Not So Soft Landing …’
Artist - Jerry Castle

Nashville singer-songwriter Jerry Castle has just released his new album Not So Soft Landing … this past June 24th. The 10-song set was recorded in East Nashville and Topanga, CA and was produced by the Grammy Award-winning producer Chad Brown (Ryan Adams, Hayes Carll) and mixed by 3-time Grammy-winning engineer and producer Warren Riker (Wyclef Jean, Down, Common).

While his previous albums presented an Americana troubadour writing songs about hard living, heartbreak and desperately trying to turn things around, the songs found on Not So Soft Landing are a marked departure from his previous rootsy sound.

A wholly deliberate choice, here in 2016 it seems that this truly gifted singer-songwriter has a new musical plane to now come in on. A much more ethereal, atmospheric, and at times psychedelic effort, Castle has since revealed that this new album was brought forth by an altered state. No, that’s definitely not a reference to drugs, but moreover Castle reaching the Theta state ie: utilizing sensory deprivation tanks, which has helped change his course as a songwriter.

“It’s like floating in outer space,” Castle has said. “There really is nothing like it. When I go into the tank, it takes me to another area. It definitely has opened me up as a songwriter. Music and lyrics come to me quicker. I can remember ideas longer and my music sounds pretty different.”
