LOS ANGELES, CA (Blackground / Universal) - Singer/songwriter Ashley Parker Angel
and star of MTV's hit music reality series "There & Back" has released his solo debut album "Soundtrack To Your Life
" on Blackground / Universal. The first single "Let U Go
" debuted at No 17 on Billboard's Hot 100 list making Angel's single the highest new entry in 2006. The single also reached No 1 on MTV's "TRL" countdown and was the No 1 most added song to Top 40 radio stations the first week it was released to radio.
The "Soundtrack To Your Life" album takes Ashley Parker Angel in new directions - his new edgy rock sound and his songwriting ability is reflected on the album. He co-wrote the entire album and worked with notable producers such as The Matrix (Avril Lavigne, Korn), Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears) and Soulshock & Karlin.
Ashley Parker Angel was previously a member of ABC's "The Making of The Band" multi-platinum group O-Town. The band dissolved in 2002 and Angel packed up and moved to Los Angeles to become a solo artist. MTV: Music Television followed the musical journey of an old face with an entirely new act in "There & Back," a music reality series chronicling the life of the former O-Town heartthrob. Angel is broke, his girlfriend is pregnant, and his entire music career rides on the success of his solo debut album. The unscripted dramatic series followed Ashley in his new life as he tried once again to break through the music industry - this time doing it his way and on his own.
Since wrapping the MTV show, Ashley Parker Angel has been busy on a national radio promo tour and making special appearances including "Live with Regis and Kelly." Angel recently performed his hit single "Let U Go" live on "TRL" and was tapped by Teen People to join their "Rock N Shop" Tour.
