Awards Show Held On November 10th at the Avalon in Hollywood , CA
Los Angeles, CA – Denver’s own 13-year-old pop sensation, Sir Castanon, received a double nomination for Pop Artist of the Year and Pop Single of the Year for his single “Puppeteer” at the 21st Annual L.A. Music Awards Nomination Ceremony held at the famed Whisky A Go-Go on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles. Al Bowman, president of LAMA stated, “Sir Castanon is an amazing artist! His music and performance style is very good!” He went on to say, “We are excited to have him as one of our nominees this year.” The 21st Annual L.A. Music Awards will take place at the Avalon in Hollywood, Thursday, November 10th, 2011 at 7:30pm. Castanon released his debut album Puppeteer last year showcasing his keen dance-pop sensibilities on such standouts as the title track. Puppeteer is available for download on iTunes.
Before music, Castanon established himself as an award winning actor with his birth name Joseph Castanon. He is best known for starring as Adam Sandler’s son in the feature film Click. In the past six years he has performed in over 30 national commercials, TV shows, films and movies. Several of the commercials and TV shows include McDonald’s, Toyota, Jericho, I Hate My 30′s, Without a Trace, E.R., and Happiness Runs to name a few. Castanon’s performances in Gost Whisperer as well as Comanche Moon with Val Kilmer earned him two coveted Young Artist Awards.
Castanon became serious about his music after he booked the starring role in the West Coast Ensemble stage production of “Big the Musical” back in the fall of 2008. It was then he realized his love for performing in front of live audiences. He joined forces and began writing and recording with multi-award winning writer and producer Jonathan George. The two year journey of development and work spawned the artist Sir Castanon. One critic said, “Sir Castanon has created the personae of a Club Kid meets Pop Star, in the tradition of Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert, only through the eyes of Justin Bieber.” His album Puppeteer hit iTunes and CD Baby on January 17, 2011. He also released a music video to his nominated single, Puppeteer.
Castanon stays mainly in LA for work but continually travels back to Colorado to visit his family.
