Hailing from Corona, CA, Castle Pines is a four-piece Alternative Rock Band featuring Leandro Barrientos (vocalist) and Ricky Garvey (lead guitarist), Sterling Fairfield (percussionist) and Jesse Briseno (bassist). Castle Pines has a unique background story. Basing the band’s name from the tragedy of losing a family home in the market crash of 2008. Their song crafting is built on emotional and impassioned tunes. They have branded themselves as the “blue collar” indie-alternative heroes of their hometown, the “non-cool kids” that fell through cracks of Suburban America. Their debut album Bless this House was an EP released in 2010. In 2014, Castle Pines released their full-length album Summer Blood and in 2017, Castle Pines founded a publishing company “CP Por Vida Music Publishing,” using the trended hashtag of their own creation #CPporVida. Their upcoming album Por Vida is taken from the Spanish word for life. The album will highlight a collection of seven singles with companion music videos curated by different film makers to give the album a unique visual and sonic experience from the perspective of different auteurs. Their first single “Castle Pines,” is a homage to the bands continued journey, and the growth of each member along the way individually and as a band.
