Dreadlocked Jason Castro gently strummed his way to fame as the third runner-up on American Idol's 2008 season. The singer and guitarist's debut album offers more samples of his light, Jason Mraz-esque pop sound, and includes his lauded Idol version of Leonard Cohen's classic "Hallelujah." And Castro, who just wed longtime girlfriend Mandy Mayhall in January, fills much of the CD with tender lyrics about love. (Atlantic)
