'Britain's Got Talent' Ronan Parke 'dropped by Epic'
Published May 3 2012, 10:21 BST | By Daniel Sperling Britain's Got Talent
star Ronan Parke
has been dropped by his record label after less than a year, reports have suggested.
The 13-year-old landed a deal with Epic
last July after finishing second on the fifth series of Simon Cowell's ITV show.
However, a spokesperson for Parke has told Metro
that the singer was the one that made the decision, after wanting to go in a "different direction" last month, and has now parted ways with the label.
Parke released just one album
during his time with Epic, a self-titled record that peaked at 22 on the UK charts upon its release in October.
The sole single from his LP, a cover of Vanessa Carlton's 'A Thousand Miles', failed to chart.
Parke was signed before last year's Britain's Got Talent
winner Jai McDowall landed his own deal
last August. The Scottish singer was also dropped by Cowell
in March. > Ronan Parke interview: 'This year feels unreal'
