Favorite Fall Tracks


Once fall hits, my music taste goes from upbeat and summery to more quiet and folksy. My favorite genre in any season is indie folk – but in the fall I really have a hard time listening to anything else. I’m always looking for new bands to listen to, so I’ve mashed up some undiscovered talent with other songs you may have already heard!

And if there’s any artist/song you think I should check out, let me know in the comments or on any of our social feeds!

Just click the image below to start listening to some of my current faves!

We’re always looking for new music to listen to and came across the amazingly talented singer, Lidor Sai. He has a debut EP of original songs coming out in November and on top of that, does some incredible covers which can be heard in different places around Los Angeles (and on his Facebook page!) We love that he’s written more than 50 songs and he’s only 20 years old, showing that you should start pursuing your passion as soon as possible. For today’s feature, Lidor put together a video giving more insight into his music and we’re so excited to share it with you! Make sure to check out his social media accounts as well to listen to his songs, covers, and to stay tuned to his big EP release.

Feature Friday: Singer Corina Seas


For today’s feature we’re excited to have electro-pop artist Corina Seas! Her debut EP, Flux, will be out on September 22nd and it’s filled with fun, danceable songs and some of the catchiest lyrics and tunes. After I heard her first single, Crystal Cove, I was singing it for days! In our interview below you can tell how passionate she is about her music and we loved learning more about the behind-the-scenes work in creating Flux, as well as what she’s trying to achieve with her good vibes-inducing music. Again, her EP comes out in just four days and her single Crystal Cove is available on iTunes and SoundCloud now so make sure to show her some support! 

Castle Logo: Tell us a little bit about yourself as well as how you got your start in music and how you knew you wanted to pursue a music career.
text - corina seas - purple: I grew up in Florida mostly, but my family is from Honduras and I was very fortunate to get to visit the country frequently.  I think going there put the world in perspective for me and really helped develop my sense of empathy, which is the basis for my humanistic approach to life and the meaning of things. That desire to connect with different people and learn new things was a big motivator in my wanting to pursue music professionally. Growing up, my parents were very enthusiastic about music too.  They aren’t musicians but they get down better than most and my dad is hilariously passionate when playing the air guitar.  So as soon as I could talk, I was running around singing, imitating musicians and making crazy voices and sounds, so it’s always been a part of me.

Pursuing music was something I always felt I needed to do. There was no specific moment when I chose to do music, it was just always my motivation for life and the only thing I felt I could really do and still be happy.  The future is remarkably insecure when attempting music, but it’s how I relate to people and how I find myself. I get a high from this that motivates my existence.  Music is everything to me.
