Welcome to the Crazy with the Heat edition of

The Geoffrey Castle Newsletter

It's been a while since my last newsletter. Thank you for being so patient. Things have been nuts. If you're getting this for the first time, well you're really not alone. There were so many sign-ups since my last newsletter went out that it took me over an hour just to type the names in!

News
Summer time is always crazy for me, but this year's been EXTRA crazy! The performance schedule is just the tip of the iceberg:

  • I'm composing and producing soundtrack for a film about PTSD and its impact on military families by an award-winning director. I'm working on this with my Fractal Music Works team: A.J. Sorbello and Brian Fischer. Sundance here we come!
  • I am also helping my lovely, and very talented wife Shannon with our first ever Kickstarter campaign! Here's the idea for the KickStarter: We build Shannon's Glass Motorcycle (over 2,000 lbs!) and we take it to Sturgis in 2015!!

    We've lined up some amazing gifts, and it's all very exciting. I hope you all click on the link and go visit and pledge your support. Every dollar counts, but the gifts that you'll get for kicking in a few more dollars are truly dazzling! You might even be able to get a limited edition custom-cut T-shirt with the Motorcycle on it by Shannon's daughter Jessica Nicole: she's in Sturgis right now working with Affliction Clothing, and her fashion company Peep Show Clothing is getting wildly popular!
  • I'm also starting work on a "Live at the Wilde Rover" CD with the Celtic Night band!Come down to the Rover, scream real loud, and maybe you'll hear yourself on the recording!

Facebook
I am constantly updating and communicating with everyone who Likes me on Facebook. These newsletters take a long time, but Facebook is EZ, and you can post pictures from shows you've attended and videos and all kinds of stuff, my pages are fun, and I promise NO PICTURES OF WHAT I ATE FOR LUNCH! (Unless it is really really really good…)

Music!
Did you know I have a Pandora Channel?
Did you know that I'm on Spotify?
Did you know that you can find nearly every CD I've ever released just by going to music.geoffreycastle.com?

Yeah baby! Cool Castle tunes are only a click away…

BIG NEWS!
I'm proud to introduce the brand new GEOFFREY CASTLE APP!!!!!!!!! My friend Jay Gerring at OnPage1.net put this together for me, and it's really, actually, truly very COOL.

The best part? It’s free! Grab it from Apple's App Store or Google Play today (just search for Geoffrey Castle) and stay up to date with my gig calendar, check out my latest YouTube videos, preview and buy tracks right in the app, and more! I gotta say, the car finder is one of my favorite features – never forget where you parked your rig before the show! Best of all, anyone who downloads it automatically becomes a member of the Castle VIP club and will get exclusive offers and specials that are only available in the app. I'm dreaming some of those up right now…

Whew! That's a lot going on … and it's just AUGUST. Wait until September rolls around… In the meantime, I sure hope you read all the shows I'm doing down below, and come find me in concert somewhere near YOU!
