The Castros w/ Riddle & the Stars, Nicholas Rowe
Their music fluctuates between haunting and deep emotional pieces like “My Dear” or “Forgive Me”, and catchy and happy tunes like “Pumpkin Pie” and “Secret Song”.
Marco is from Costa Rica and has been influenced by everything from heavy music to latin rhythms; Sara grew up in Newark, Ohio listening to classic rock and folk music. It’s no wonder how this collapse of influences and cultural conversation makes them want to push envelopes and thrive to be unique in their own way. They even have songs in Spanglish 🙂

About RIDDLE & THE STARS
After initially meeting as tour mates in Germany, the three artists discovered an unexpected kinship, both musically and personally. A few months later, Ben flew from Australia to California for a whirlwind 17-day recording session, resulting in “This is Happening,” their first album together. Drawing from a range of Indie, Americana and Folk influences, the music is layered with vocal harmonies along with rootsy instrumentation, such as the tenor guitar, pedal steel and cajon. One fan described their rich, dynamic sound as “Fleetwood Mac meets The Waterboys.”

About NICHOLAS ROWE
The first thing you really need to know about me is that even my closest friends sometimes refer to me as a robot, and they don’t mean it in a good way. Another well worn description is “Walking Quaalude”. The general consensus is that I don’t have emotions. This, of course, is far from true. But the reality is that emotionally things tend to register for me a little too late; at the end of the day or once the fight is over. So the proverbial weight doesn’t really hit until the girl is already gone and it’s too late to say goodbye.
That being said, the only real way to move forward when emotion finally catches up with reality is to write it all down privately and pour over it painstakingly so that one day, hopefully, it turns into a song. And that’s pretty much where all my songs come from.
