An Interview With The Promising Newcomer Musician JERRY CASTLE On His Upcoming Record, Earliest Musical Memories With Family, Biggest Inspirations and More!
At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope listeners take away from your songs?
The short answer is I hope they take away whatever they want to take away that helps them feel better in any particular situation. I think music is such a personal thing and what might make one person feel better only makes another person feel like shit. From my point of view, I think the message on the previous albums has been that there’s always hope, be tough, fight the fight, you’re not the only one that feels sad and life is tough.
I think the message on ‘Not So Soft Landing’ is expanding upon that. There are a lot of broken characters on this album but the only place they could potentially find redemption, is through a deeper and more intelligent understanding of their self. Most of them have come to realize that they’re not like anybody else, so their not going to be able to relate on a level of “oh, I find comfort in the fact that someone else feels the way I do.” They’re only going to find comfort through being ok with the fact that they’re unique and striving to be the most loving and aware person that they can possibly be. You don’t get that from anyone else, you only get that from your self.
