About Jim Castle Band

Function band
London

This is Jim Castle's Trio project. Jim plays with some of the best musicians in UK. Always giving great performances and great emotions.

Here is my autobiography. There are no other musicians in my family as far as I know. The first signs started to show when I was two. And by the age of four I was singing all day long and I knew already around 50 songs. There was no doubt I was going to be a musician. One day when I was five I got hit in the head by a heavy swing on a playground. I spent a month and a half in a hospital in a critical condition in the beginning. After the accident I had problems with speech and seeing colours for about a year. By the age of six I was back in the game, but with singing was over. My parents didn't gave up, bought me a guitar and found me a guitar teacher. Years went by and I became good on the guitar, but still no singing. When I was 18 I had to compete with 12 other guitarists for one single place in Music Conservatory. I got the place. Two years later I had a chance to participate in a guitar masterclass with one of the best musicians I have ever heard or seen. I went to study with him in Switzerland and lived there for the next 10 years. When I was 23 I decided I should give it another go with singing. I started to sing with the guitar and write my own songs. It felt great and it still does to this very day. Now I live in London with my wife and our two little girls. I hope you like my music and my story. Jim
