Big Dog Lets Albert Castiglia Bark All Day
Mike Zito Produced and Ruf Records Released
New Tunes Growl, Wags and Digs Holes In His Big Backyard
Big Dog will confirm that Albert Castiglia is a different breed from the lightweights and arrivistes who dominate the modern music scene. After five acclaimed albums and decades of blazing blues-rock shows, you might argue that youve already made his acquaintance. But by the Florida bandleaders own admission, Big Dog is the first release to truly get under his skin. I just wanted to make a record that best represented who I am, as a musician, singer, guitarist and live artist, explains Albert. With every release, Ive come close, but this time, producer Mike Zito helped me nail it. He and label boss Thomas Ruf wanted me to make a raw, rocking blues record. Thats what Im about- thats who I am.
At 46, hes slugged his way into contention the old-fashioned way: writing from his heart, bleeding into his performances, eating up the road. I have no illusions about what kind of guitar player and singer I am, he states. My style is raw, unadulterated, crude and heavy. I dont have the technical proficiency of other players, but I play whats in my heart and what I feel at that moment. When I write songs, they have to mean something
