Introducing - Yeah Boy
The former young parachuter launches his solo project.
Out of the ashes of Parachute Youth, we'd like you to meet Yeah Boy, currently celebrating the release of his debut EP, Can't Get Enough:
Who are you?
My name is Johnny Castro, I'm 24 years old and living in London and loving it.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
Funk nu-disco. But there is some diversity in my music as I'm always exploring new things and hopefully that shows in my second EP.
I think just mainly having fun with it. Letting things happen by accident is where the magic usually happens. When in a writing sessions with myself or anyone else, it's good to go in there without expecting too much, having a jam or something. I find that just experimenting and just playing around with sounds that aren't so 'typical' gives you a unique and positive outcome in writing. Just have fun with it!
Any shows coming up?
I'm currently still putting the live show together, but expect something special. I'll be kicking it off in Europe though. Pretty keen!
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
I'm working on my second EP which I'm excited about. I think just getting my name out there and letting people know even though sadly Parachute Youth is finished, I'm not. Also getting my live show sorted and pretty much starting on the album.
Where can we hear more of your music?
You can check out my Soundcloud where my first EP Can't Get Enough has been uploaded. Hope you like it and can't wait to share some more Yeah Boy!
