The EP was ‘Radio Nova and Hot Press’ band of the Week.

At present Hector, alongside his 4 piece band and under the stage name of ‘Mr Castle’, is touring all over Ireland, U.K and Lithuania, bringing a high octane show with plenty of Latin Blues Rock vibes. With three single releases (Debut single “Opportunity To Live” featured as Hot Press’ Track of the day), Mr Castle has been running up the scene, rising in the Blues-Rock music industry and continuing to make a name by himself.
