Carlos Castaño

Carlos Castaño is an independent musician from the Philippines.  In 2010, he released the first of a three-part project-- City Light Soundtrack. The album was produced by Kerplunk! Studios' Kelvin Uy and Engineered by Pat Jalbuena. That same year, Carlos was invited to play two music festivals in Singapore: Kinestasia at Timbre and Baybeats Festival at the Esplanade. In support of that release, Carlos continued to play shows in the Philippines and around Asia. In 2012 Carlos released CLS part 2: PERMANENCE. This had him reach back deep into his roots of Motown, the Blues, and a whole lot of storytelling, as the album broke out singles "After Everything" and "Bright Yellow", with the latter breaking Carlos' dislike for music videos. The music video for "Bright Yellow" was directed by Natileigh Sitoy and enjoyed its own success, picking up awards along the way.  In 2013, CLS part 3: THE END was released in Singapore, closing out the City Light Soundtrack series.  Just this September, Carlos Castano became the FIRST Independent Filipino Musician to play in FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE, playing 4 shows in 4 nights at the Sail Stage, Sunset Stage, and Padang Grandstand (Coyote Stage).  The band heads into the studio to record the 4th full album, which is the first of a new three-part series: The Brightest. The first record in the series, "Everything/Beautiful" is scheduled for a December 15 release this year.
