Castles in Spain is a San Francisco based band who has been a part of the Bay Area music scene for the past decade, and fronted by singer Biachis live performance has been compared to that of early Janes Addiction and Sinead OConnor.
San Francisco based trio. Dreamy, emotional, mesmerizing, intense sound with Middle-Eastern influences. Latest news, tour dates, downloadable songs and photos.
Why this name?
it is a euphemism for the word "fantasy"
Do you play live?
Yes we LOVE to perform live! Every performance is SPECIAL!
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives independent bands a platform and exposure.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
of course, we want to continue recording and tour the world.
Castles In Spain is fronted by lead singer, Biachi who continues the tradition of outstanding female rock vocalists to emerge from the
San Francisco music scene. Her voice might have you doing a double-take for the name Grace Slick or Linda Perry.
The music is at once tough, lush and hypnotic, often reminiscent of the epic sounding Janes Addiction.
Completing the Castles' sound are Joe Birtola on bass, Derek Richmond on guitar and Anthony Verdier on drums & percussion.
While quickly building a loyal fan base, Castles In Spain have been using their brilliant but hard to peg music and powerful performance style to benefit others. Biachi is the producer of annual Women Who RAWK events in San Francisco, which brings together local bands
to raise both funds and awareness for the Breast Cancer Fund.
Castles In Spain fans have been hounding their heroes for a handful of years at San Francisco hotspots like Fat City, 12 Galaxies,
Red Devil Lounge and Slim’s. The band is no stranger to touring extending their reach to San Jose, Monterey, Modesto,
Sacramento, Chico, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Nevada.
