First Live Release On 180g Orange Vinyl LP!
Blustery Blues, Gritty R&B & Hard-Charging Roadhouse Rock!


Guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Tommy Castro has released 15 albums ranging from horn-fueled soul and R&B to piping hot blues to fiery rock 'n' roll. He's performed all over the world, earning countless fans with his legendary, sweat-drenched, exhilarating live shows. The Painkillers—bassist Randy McDonald, drummer Bowen Brown and keyboardist Michael Emerson—have now been playing together over four years. After hundreds of live shows, they have coalesced into one of the telepathically tightest units Castro has ever assembled, making them one of the most in-demand live roots music acts performing today.

With the group firing on all cylinders, Castro knew the time was right to answer his fans' demands for a live album. Killin' It Live captures the band at the peak of their creative and improvisational powers, and features one unforgettable, unpredictable performance after another. "This is the best band we've ever had," says Castro. "We really got something going on beyond just being good musicians. Every song we play live now has that right feel—all the dynamics. It allows us to jam out more on stage. Killin' It Live is what you hear when you see us live."

Featuring songs from throughout Castro's career, Killin' It Live was produced by Castro and engineer/songwriter Ron Alan Cohen and recorded at venues in Texas, New York, Michigan and California during 2018. The album includes eight Castro originals spanning his entire career and two Castro-ized covers, each showing a slightly different side of his multifaceted musical personality.

"Castro's aggressive, inspired attack on vocals and guitar is phenomenal." - Washington Post

"Tommy Castro & The Painkillers showcase the power of the blues, soul and down-and-dirty rock 'n' roll...rousing and infectious. This is energizing, scorching, soul-shaking music….pure pleasure." - Living Blues
