Tommy Castro & the Painkillers

Blues,R&B/Soul

Often likened to Otis Redding's sound, Tommy Castro's music is a combination of soul-inflected rock with the occasional slow blues thrown into the mix. After being a member of several Bay Area cover bands, Castro has been leading his own bands since 1991. His release, "Exception to the Rule," won the 1997 Bay Area Music Award for Outstanding Blues Album. That same year he also took the award for Outstanding Blues Musician.
