‘America’s Got Talent’ winner Michael Grimm signs with Epic Records

‘America’s Got Talent’ winner Michael Grimm signs with Epic Records


You know what they say: If you build it, they will come. So naturally, in today’s reality show-obsessed world, if you win a televised talent competition…you’re likely to get a record deal. In a press release, Epic Records announced the signing of recent America’s Got Talent winner Michael Grimm. The self-described “blue-eyed soul singer” impressed the judges and voters at home with his skillful guitar playing and smooth voice week after week as he covered soul classics like“You Don’t Know Me,” “Let’s Stay Together,” and“When a Man Loves a Woman.” Grimm’s signing follows the path of last season’s AGT winner, country singer Kevin Skinner, who released his debut album Long Ride last September.

In a recent interview, Grimm told EW that he hoped winning America’s Got Talent would allow him to “cut the album [he’s] been wanting to cut,” and give him the exposure and promotion necessary to perform beyond his Las Vegas home. “I know the genre, I know the route I want to go on this album, what it looks like, and smells like, and sounds like,” Grimm said. According to Epic, Grimm plans to release a solo album in March 2011.

Grimm is currently rehearsing for the upcoming America’s Got Talent Live, which kicks off this Friday in Oakland, Calif. The tour will travel to 25 cities and feature performances by season 5′s Top 10 contestants, including finalists Prince Poppycock and Jackie Evancho.
