UPI News Service, 03/24/2006
Singer Jessica Simpson has moved from Columbia to Epic Records, it was reported Friday.
Simpson, who has been with Columbia since 1999, followed Charlie Walk who recently moved from the Columbia Records Group to become Epic's president, Billboard.com noted. Both companies are under the Sony umbrella.
"Charlie Walk was my first hero at Columbia," Simpson told Billboard. "He believed in me before I really even got to meet the rest of the company. I couldn't think of anyone I would trust more than Charlie to present my new music to the world."
