April !

Somewhere in between soloists like Bobby McFerrin, Ed Sheerin, Imogen Heap or Jacob Collier exists

Jim Castaneda; an artist who hits the rhythmic target by multi-looping original compositions

into full-form, laid-back, groove-driven arrangements while showcasing

his vocal talent, melodic tastes and improvisational style.  

Jim’s debut solo record, ‘Beatbox Soul’, holds a treasure trove of vocal percussion, steady grooves, catchy melodies, lush vocals, electric tastes and acoustic moods.

Like a musical octopus, Jim  utilizes his guitar, voice, keyboard, a few carefully chosen foot pedals,

and a fresh approach to percussion to sound more like a small band than a solo act.
