He was in one of our favourite bands, and we can expect some more music from ex-JLS member Aston Merrygold as he signs a solo deal.
Exciting news for fans of JLS – Aston Merrygold is the latest member to confirm he is going to be releasing new music!
Hot on the heels of Marvin Humes’ new venture ‘LuvBug’ who are releasing ‘Resonance’ on the 5th October, and Aston confirmed the exciting news on Instagram as he shared a snap of him signing his contract with Warner Records yesterday.
He captioned the photo, “Someone once told me enjoy every minute of it... I've known this day was coming for over a week and been fine, driven, motivated.. READY to just get working asap! But I've not actually sat back n enjoyed the thought of being signed to a record label on my own…”
“I was lucky enough to be apart of what I think is one of the best boy bands this country has ever produced! The best fans, the best team, the best band mates/brothers hands down! But I've had a dream since I was young watching my idols do there thing, there way and how they wanted and I can't believe I get a shot at that…” [sic]
“Everything outside and around me has changed but I'm still the same guy ready to give my new management team Craig, Vikki and all the guys at LOGAN MEDIA ENTERTAINMENT, my new record label Miles, joe, Phil and all the WARNER BROS MUSIC team, the WHOLE A TEAM, my family, friends, lovers, haters and most important you lot who have had my back from day dot starting in this industry…”
“I'm going to give you ALL I got! I feel so blessed to be in this position and I'm not going to waste it!!!!!! Get ready it's going to be a bumpy, but fun as hell ride! Ax (So f***ing excited btw)”
We’re very excited to hear what Aston's solo material will be like!
