Mary Kastle is a musician, blogger, and clothing designer based on Bowen Island, BC.
A singer-songwriter with a jazzy soul, she is a graduate of both VCC and Capilano College’s Jazz Studies programs in piano and voice. Her muse is in blending jazzy harmonies and grooves with straight-up pop songs.
After a busy decade of recording and touring, she took a break from the hustle of East Van and moved to Bowen Island in 2011 with her husband and new baby. What she didn’t expect was to find a happening little music scene there that welcomed her with open arms.
Now, settled into island life, she is writing up a storm and working with some of Vancouver’s finest musicians and producers, who also happen to be Bowen residents; renowned jazz drummer Buff Allen, platinum-selling producer Winston Hauschild, and notable jazz guitarist Teun Schut.
