The Deep Well Sessions are a new idea. I went into Deep Well Studio, solo, and recorded 19 songs in two days. Each song was captured by a four-camera video shoot so people can see how the recording was made. One take. Every time.
Geoffrey Castle combines old school R&B, funk, jazz, blues, and gospel with traditional Celtic melodies. These seven songs feature performances by Alan White (drummer for John Lennon, Yes), Ben Smith (drummer for Heart), Garey Shelton (Grammy-winning bass player) and Eric Robert (the keyboardist featured on Underhill's Angel).
My friend, fellow violinist, and songwriting partner John Schussler and I have remastered the source of many of today's audience favorites. New World features a who's-who of the Seattle music scene (including Grammy-winning guitarist Eric Tingstad, studio and performance giants Ben Smith and Garey Shelton, Jovino Santos Neto, Dan Tyack, Jami Sieber, Mike Gordon, and more…I think it's the best ensemble recording project I've ever done. And now it sounds better than ever! Check out music samples and get it today in MP3 or WAV format—full album or individual tracks!
Geoffrey Castle has taken music from before the commercialization of Christmas and brought it forth into the 21st century with new arrangements and a state-of-the-art recording that will bring joy to listeners for years to come!
I wanted to make a CD with songs that predated the commercialization of Christmas. Melodies that are 200, 300, 400, 800 years old. A CD with deep spiritual roots, and a sound that feels right now, full of inspiration and improvisation. Eric Robert and I went into the studio with Grammy award-winning bassist Garey Shelton and these ancient melodies—some of which will be familiar, and some that I am sure will become new favorites—and we followed our own path. The result really is magical.
