Daily Inspiration: Meet Tre Castro

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tre Castro.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was born in Mexicali, Baja California, in 1992 and relocated to San Diego, California in 2002. My musical journey began when I picked up a guitar in 2006 and my life has not been the same since. I toured with multiple bands throughout Southern California at just 16 years old helping shape the work I now do in the studio. In 2017, I graduated with a BA in Chicana/o Studies from San Diego State University, which, not coincidentally is the same year I began producing full-time. I now attempt to blur the lines of various genres until something unique is created. 2020 placed a lot of obstacles for many but I intend on consistently releasing art and pushing the limits of my creativity.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Moving to a different county at a very young age really opened my perspective on border life/culture and how despite shared common goals everyone’s path through life is different. I am a product of this diversity and I reflect that through my music. What was once a struggle now helps me navigate anything coming my way.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a music producer and I specialize in artist development. I like to build from scratch with artists and collaborate with one and only goal in mind, to make the best songs possible every time no matter what it takes. I am the proudest of the various bodies of work I am blessed to be a part of. I love working on singles but there is no feeling like telling a story from beginning to end with a project. I try to let the music speak for itself.

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
My first instrument was the saxophone and I was the 4th-grade spelling bee champion.
