Jason's debut CD was very good and this second release with 5 new songs will I am sure be just
as wonderful. I've heard You Are and it is a great song and shows an insight into Jason Castro that many might be surprised to see. The EP with Changing Colors is something that many who've heard it live are very excited to see released. You'll not be disappointed with this Artist's offerings.
