Lee DeWyze, Crystal Bowersox ink recording deals
Hollywoodnews.com: On the heels of their win and place standings, Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox have inked record deals on Thursday.
DeWyze will sing under 19 Recordings Limited/RCA while Bowersox will reach her listeners through 19 Recordings Limited/Jive.
“Idol” winner records are typically released in the final quarter of the year, timed to the holidays. Also, look for a cross promotion on the film side. Last year, Sony music tapped Adam Lambert for its end credits song on “2012” entitled “Time for Miracles.”
RCA has such former Idols like Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert in its stable, while Jive is home to Kris Allen and Jordin Sparks among others.
In addition, DeWyze and Bowersox have already dropped two singles on the radio airwaves; their respective covers of U2’s
“Beautiful Day” and Patty Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain.”
