Totally Stoned

Jason Castro made the final four on American Idol 7. He auditioned in Dallas and possesses a calming, soothing voice. He was a nice change from other, louder, over-the-top performers.
Castro appeared on MTV's Cheyenne and, until recently, he was the drummer in the band Keeping Lions. The singer is from College Station, Texas and impressed us the most on Idol with his rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

Jason Castro Quotes

It’s just getting tough for me. I think my inexperience is coming in. This week I tried to pick two [songs] I knew and even that, I screwed it up.

Jason Castro [asked about his disappointing final two performances]

I think that, especially with things like [Idol], people like to stereotype so easily. Just because a guy is really easy going... People have always said that [about me]. When I was younger I was real hyper and they'd think I was always drunk and I had never had a drink of alcohol until, like, last year. But the fact is I've never been high in my life.
