American Idol season 7 troubadour Jason Castro is currently on the road promoting his 2010 Love Uncompromised EP and winning great reviews in the process; he even managed to turn a New York Times music critic into a fledgling Idoloonie! If you haven’t been able to catch him live yet, though, fret not: During a trip to New York City late last month, Jason stopped by Hudson Terrace and graced Idolatry with an acoustic performance of his single “Let’s Just Fall in Love Again.” I also managed to grill the laid-back newlywed about the unabashedly romantic direction of some of his new songs and discuss why he infuses his music with a sense of humor. Press play below for the two-part interview (followed by jaunty performance). And to experience my full Idol-related hootenanny, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak.
