With ukulele tracks and vocals recorded by Campos himself, alongside the adept production of Josh Zuckermann and Tim J Abbott, each song is imbued with a sense of intimacy and authenticity.


Drawing inspiration from an eclectic array of musical influences, including the timeless melodies of Johnny Cash, the heartfelt ballads of Jim Croce, and the soothing harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, “The Castle” showcases Campos’s versatility as a composer and lyricist. Gospel music also plays a pivotal role in shaping the EP’s vocal technique, adding depth and emotion to Campos’s heartfelt delivery.

The Castle” is more than just a collection of songs; it’s a milestone that showcases Campos’s evolution as an artist and storyteller. From the hauntingly beautiful opening track “Purpose” with its delicate ukulele arpeggios and inspired lyrics to the soul-enriching delicateness of “Sage,” “Allegory,” and “Luna,” each song invites listeners to explore themes of love, purpose, and self-discovery. “Finale,” which closes this beautiful EP, is the last gem of this incredible release, a masterpiece of pure artistry that resolves the musical journey of such an inspired artist.

Accompanied by captivating artwork by Santiago Diaz and video production by Paul García, “The Castle” is a multimedia experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional music. As Zachary Campos bids farewell to the music world, “The Castle” stands as a fitting finale to his illustrious career.
