Jason Castro’s New Song: Sweet Medicine.

Feeling gloomy or “under the weather”? Well American Idol Top 4 Finalist, Jason Castro, has created a remedy, in the form of a new song, just for you called “Sweet Medicine”.

This is a great song – really catchy and extremely radio-friendly. And Jason’s voice sounds wonderfully expressive and artistically distinct. When given the opportunity to perform songs that address his folksy, bluesy style, Jason’s voice sounds absolutely stellar and his performance level increases immensely.

Although the video is very blurry, the audio is excellent and Jason looks and sounds confident and relaxed.

I just loved this number so much and I know you will as well. It is a strong indication of where Jason is headed in his performing career. His ability to capture a cohesive blend of melody and lyrics is quite remarkable.

Excellent work, Jason! Keep adding your songs to YouTube. We want more! Also, special thanks to ReReader for making me aware of this video.
