We are pleased to premiere the song, “I Tried To Tell Ya” by Albert Castiglia from his upcoming album, Masterpiece out May 24th via Gulf Coast Records.
One listen to this song by the outstanding blues-rock guitarist, singer-songwriter, Albert Castiglia and you’ll know right away why we are excited to premiere this song. It’s just plain rockin’ good with some tasty slide guitar and powerful, soulful vocals by the man himself. Albert’s songs have interesting lyrics and stories to tell and many of us can relate to this one.
Albert says, ““I Tried to Tell Ya” is about watching friends do things against their best interests despite your warnings. This happens a lot with some of my friends.”
With Albert Castiglia’s upcoming album, Masterpiece, he celebrates an unforeseen gift—a connection with a daughter he never knew he had. The result is an album that is both personal and provocative. He calls this the most meaningful album he’s ever made.
Co-produced by long-time friend and colleague Mike Zito, the album also finds Castiglia reflecting on the disappointment and disconnect that’s gripped the nation in the past several years. “This album is an observation of life through the eyes of a father, grandfather, husband and citizen of the world. My newly found family brought out a perspective I never thought I’d have.”
The Miami-raised musician served an apprenticeship while backing legendary blues musician Junior Wells. He later went on to work with singer Sandra Hall. Thus far his solo career has yielded eight critically acclaimed albums and consistent praise for his exceptional instrumental prowess, his searing vocals, and live performances that have dazzled audiences from coast to coast. It’s little wonder that Miami’s New Times lauded him as South Florida’s “Best Blues Guitarist” or that USA Today was inspired to remark, “It’s a revelation to discover the thrilling retro-electric blues from this astonishing young guitarist.”
Albert is currently on tour. Having seen him perform live, I can tell you that you are in for a treat. He is an amazing performer and entertainer, as well as one of the great guitar players, singers, of our time.
