Another American Idol contestant has a new record deal!
Last year’s 4th placed winner Jason Castro, has signed on with Atlantic Records. He’s due to release his debut album later this year.
Castro reached #1 on iTunes last spring with his cover of Over The Rainbow after performing the tune on Idol’s stage.
The album will feature songs written by current AI judge Kara DioGuardi and Grammy award-winning songwriter John Fields as well as several other song writers in the industry.
Congratulations. I love that he is working with such talented writers and producers, and look forward to hearing the collaborative efforts of his new team.
Here is a clip from one of his past performances:
