ALBUM OVERVIEW: With his rich tenor voice, distinctive looks, and, let's just say it, endearingly innocent charm, Jason Castro won over millions of viewers as a contestant on the seventh season of American Idol, parlaying his substantial singer-songwriter appeal into a fourth-place finish. He may not have won the competition, but the 22-year-old Texan earned himself a devoted fan base eager to hear what he would do once freed to let rip on his own songs. Those folks will get their chance when Atlantic Records releases Castro's debut album in January 2010.To capture the moods he wanted, Castro collaborated with producer Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos) and a host of top-notch songwritersincluding Marc Roberge of O.A.R., Gregg Wattenberg (Five For Fighting), Zac Maloy (David Cook), and Espionage (Train).
OTHER SELLING POINTS: x x

KEY MARKETS: MARKETING HIGHLIGHTS: Press & Publicity: Ellen (street week...date TBD)
ARTIST INFO: During his junior year at Texas A&M University, Castro auditioned and earned a slot on American Idol where he delighted viewers with a number of memorable performances accompanying himself on acoustic guitar (the show's first-ever contestant to play an instrument onstage). Castro's rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah" proved such an audience favorite that Jeff Buckley's cover of the song hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart the following week, selling an astonishing 178,000 digital singles, and propelling the song to platinum status. Castro scored a chart-topping single of his own with his ukulele-accompanied interpretation of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," which hit No. 1 on iTunes after his stunning performance.

JEREMY RIDDLE LIVE Prepare The Way STREET DATE: March 2, 2010 ORDER DUE DATE: February 12, 2010 FILE UNDER: MWCPXX GENRE: Modern Worship BOX LOT: 30 PKG: Jewel
Few artists have the ability to communicate truth and inspire worship the way Jeremy Riddle does in Prepare The Way, his first live concert recording. In truth, calling these 13 songs, recorded live at the Student Life Camp at South Padre Island, TX earlier this year, a ‘concert’ doesn’t describe the powerful worship that those in attendance experienced on this special night. Mixing his own compositions like ‘Sweetly Broken’ and ‘Christ is Risen’ with popular worship songs like ‘How He Loves’, the album is less of a souvenir of Riddle’s success and more a document of God’s movement among His people. Talk to anyone who has experienced Jeremy Riddle live and they will tell you his gifts go far beyond those of a talented singer and songwriter. In fact, Riddle’s ability to turn mere listeners into active participants inspired the following warning sticker to be placed on all CDs: ‘Listen with caution while driving – may cause spontaneous worship & removal of hands from steering wheel’.

Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers have sold millions of records over the course of their career. Their top radio hits occurred throughout the 70's and 80's. Larry Gatlin met Johnny Cash for the first time at WLAC television studios back in 1972. Larry was actually sweeping the floors as a janitor at the station. Johnny Cash came in one day to record some television commercials. The two hit it off and wound up picking and singing songs all night in the hallway. Mr. Cash picked Larry up under his wing as a mentor and, as Larry would later say, a brother. Now Larry's focus is on returning that same favor to others within the Nashville community mentoring songwriters and artists alike.

to date. Beautiful Things was self-produced and expands the horizons of Gungorâ€™s version of modern worship. All songs were written or co-written by Michael. The album features a guest appearance by Israel Houghton. This is alternative worship at its best. â€œWhat we found in this couple [Gungor and his wife Lisa] were passionate, creative, humble and authentic disciples of Christ, true worshippers who are willing to do whatever it takes to truly follow Jesus. We are all the better for being exposed to this gift, and our hearts are stirred to change. I personally was challenged and refreshed to the core,â€? said award-winning songwriter and Hillsong worship pastor, Darlene Zschech.
