Australian Idol’s Stan Walker Mum To Negotiate With Sony???

 

I was a bit perplexed about this article in the Sunday Telegraph where it said that Australian Idol winner Stan Walker’s mother would be negotiating his record deal with Sony Music.

The good news is that Stan is determined to get some money for his album of the songs that he performed on the show, something previous winner Damien Leith, and runner-up Jessica Mauboy did not get.

However is his mother the right person to do this?

The article states:

Walker, 19, has set up his own company – Stan Walker Music Pty Ltd, headed by his mum, April – to negotiate his record deal with Sony Music so he doesn’t end up like Leith.

I am always a bit wary about relatives getting involved in business deals, especially when they have no experience in the area. Yes she would have Stan’s best interest’s at heart,  but will that be enough?

Beautiful voice…wish he would sing songs by artists such as Harry Belafonte, Sam Cooke, Johhny Matthis, Brook Benton and maybe even (the name escapes me) the guy that did the duets albums with various artists including Lady Gaga. I don’t feel the songs that SW does do justice to his voice.

Oh, and I’d love to hear him sing Mac the Knife.
