(July 21, 2021) Many artists who are working hard for their money on lucrative day jobs have dreams of their own personal stage to extend their real career aspirations.  After Castella fulfilled her true calling by releasing her debut EP, Thinking About You, she was released from her HR job.  From that moment, the singer/songwriter assuredly forgot about that day gig, as the impressive accolades started coming in.  While Castella was being recognized as a Breakout Artist of 2020 by The Smooth Jazz Network, the single "Let Me Love You" crossed over from the smooth jazz market in the U.S. to a top 5 placement on Black Planet Radio in Italy.

Gracing Castella’s artistry are her warm vocals that seamlessly exert power within a musical mix of neo-soul, R&B and pop.  And her supporting team of Billboard Smooth Jazz charting drummer/producer Jeff Canady and Grammy winning vocal producer/songwriter Darryl Swann sprinkle the cool factor.

SoulTracks now gladly introduces Castella to our First Listen pages with her latest track, “So Glad I Met You” (Castella Music).  The upbeat mood syncs with a storyline building upon two people ready to strike an immediate romantic match.  And Castella’s eloquent lead expresses a celebration of the proper connection: “I know I talk too much/But I just can’t shut up…You bring out the best in me/You make me feel so free to be me.”  Fueled by a gently grooving soundtrack piloted by Canady, Castella and trumpeter Willie Bradley flow hand-in-hand with the solid rhythm section.  All in all, “So Glad I Met You” provides a positive diversion for romantic love’s sake.  Check it out.
