David Archuleta signs with Azoff

David Archuleta

David’s signed with Azoff Management, according to Entertainment Weekly.

David Archuleta has signed with Azoff Management, the career-launching (and often sustaining) music powerhouse that counts The Eagles, Christina Aguilera, Neil Diamond, and, most recently, Morrissey among its clients. But that doesn’t mean young Archie, last season’s American Idol runner-up, will forgo his dad’s guidance from here on out. Jeff Archuleta will co-manage his son’s music career along with Azoff’s Jared Paul, who steers the pop ship for artists like Nick Lachey and New Kids on the Block.

19 Entertainment gets first dibs on Idol finalists for management, but the company apparently passed on Archuleta, while signing winner David Cook (a 19 representative declined to comment). Still, Archuleta remains on the 19 Recordings roster, and the company is intimately involved in overseeing his first album, which is due out Nov. 11. David Cook’s debut will drop a week later

FOD’s Becky shared with Davidland!

CONGRATULATIONS, DAVID. My buddy Sabrina posted this a few weeks ago, and since I know nothing about management, I thought I’d share it:

Another option that occurred to me, and is actually my favorite choice now that it has, would be Irving Azoff. His clients include Christina Aguilera, The Eagles, and Steely Dan. I’m most familiar with Christina’s trajectory, and it’s none too shabby. And Azoff certainly knows how to work with people who are artists, not entertainers. I like it. Go Irv!

Sounds awesome! Just, um, don’t pull a Dirrty on us, David.
