In The Spotlight

Castella – “So Glad I Met You”

Born Cathy Rebecca Crowell in Long Beach, this velveteen vocalist and songwriter has been singing her entire life, be it in church choirs, in groups or a soloist. Her moniker was chosen as a tribute to her grandmother. Inspired by powerful female voices, such as Phyllis Hyman, Aretha Franklin and Minnie Riperton, she debuted her ear-stroking R&B/jazz blend on her single “No Ordinary Love” in 2020.

Fusing touches of 80s pop and 60s soul, doused in a tasty layer of infectious funkiness, her new single is an opulent, vintage-dipped smooth groove. It’s the sparkling keys, mellow guitars and gentle percussion that provide the perfect foundation for the sultry trumpet tones of Willie Bradley. And with her warm vocals singing about falling in love at first sight, you’ll definitely be glad you met her!
