Aw man. We knew it was coming when Allison Iraheta no longer appeared on the Jive Artist list on the label’s web page.
Entertainment Weekly breaks the news:
Allison Iraheta, fourth-place finisher on season 8 of American Idol, has parted ways with her label, Jive Records, EW.com has learned. Rumors began to swirl in the blogosphere over Labor Day weekend, when fans of the red-headed rocker noticed she was no longer listed under the roster of artists on Jive’s official Web site.
“Allison Iraheta has parted ways with Jive Records, however she remains signed to 19 Recordings. Allison is currently on the road in the U.S. opening for Adam Lambert on the Glam Nation Tour, ” a 19 spokesperson told EW.
The good news, is that Allison remains with 19 recordings. Hopefully, 19’s new distribution partner, Universal Music Group decides to pick her up.
Seriously, she’s so talented, I can’t help but think she’ll land on her feet somewhere. It just may be a case of youth. Allison was too mature to be marketed to the tween set, yet maybe not quite mature enough to perform adult music. In a few years, that girl is going to be a force to be reckoned with.
