Albums
Deep Well Sessions—two-disc set!

Deep Well Sessions Disc 1 Deep Well Sessions Disc 2 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.

Streets of Inwood 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).

Mist on the Mountain Here's what the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has to say about Mist on the Mountain:

On his solo album, the Seattle violinist offers and eleven-track collection of stunning originals showcasing his pioneering talent on six-string electric violin. Tapping ancient Celtic melodies and modern pop, rock, and jazz, Castle has creased a pure, uncluttered masterpiece. Among the gems is the ethereal "Underhill's Waltz," and a remarkable version of Miles Davis' "All Blues."
—Gene Stout, Seattle P-I

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!

For The Holidays: Underhill's Angel

Underhill's Angel 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.
