Growing up in California, Costa started playing music at age 12, when he first picked up a guitar. He had dreams of being a pro skateboarder, but after an injury sidelined him for a year, Costa realized that his true calling was his music.
He began churning out demos from his four-track, and one of them made it into the hands of Tom Dumont, guitarist of No Doubt. Soon, Costa had a producer. After the two released a couple of independent EPs, Jack Johnson invited the young singer-songwriter onto his Brushfire label.
Costa's latest release, Mobile Chateau, reflects his admiration for "'60s psychedelic superheroes" like Donovan and the Electric Prunes. He performs songs from the new album at World Café Live.
