MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
While growing up in Brooklyn, NY, Raymond Castronovo discovered at a young age that playing the guitar, writing music and performing at local venues provided an escape from reality for both himself and his audience. His natural gift for connecting with the audience caught the attention of a major record label and they offered him a contract. On the brink of signing with the label, the young artist had to put his music dreams on hold to focus on starting a family. He continued writing and sharing his music with his close circle of family and friends, knowing he would someday return to music full-time.
