    Show me the money: Stan By Jonathon Moran From: The Sunday Telegraph December 20, 2009


    AUSTRALIAN Idol winner Stan Walker has learned from previous winners and negotiated an improved deal to kick-start his music career.
    After Damien Leith, who won the 2006 Idol series, declared he had made no money from the sale of 300,000 copies of his debut album, The Winner's Journey, Walker instructed his lawyers to pay extra attention when going through his contract.

    Walker, 19, has set up his own company - Stan Walker Music Pty Ltd, headed by his mum, April - to negotiate his record deal with Sony Music so he doesn't end up like Leith.

    Leith claimed he did not receive a cent of the estimated $3 million profit from sales of his album. The young father of two was so cash-strapped that he had to sell his car to pay his rent.

    "I'm guaranteed some cash," Walker told The Sunday Telegraph of his album, Introducing Stan Walker.

    "I've got that covered. I got that sorted because we heard about that thing with Damien. Our lawyer ensured that we'd get paid off this with royalties and a percentage of the album sales. When Damien said what he did, it made me ask a lot of questions. At the end of the day, I don't want to have nothing."

    Leith and his runner-up, Jessica Mauboy, were reportedly victims of fine print in the contract for Idol contestants, which specifies that the Idol creators, 19 Entertainment, and producer Fremantle Media own the rights to their performances on the show.The records released by Sony, called The Winner's Journey, compiled those performances, leaving Leith and Mauboy without an income from their debut offerings.

    Walker said he took a modest weekly wage from his company.

    "I get a certain wage every week, so it's good for me," he said.

    "I want to buy a house in Sydney at the end of next year."

    Walker's album, recorded over just two days, includes covers of tracks that he made popular on the reality series.

    These include Purple Rain, Let's Stay Together, Amazing Grace and We Will Rock You.

    "This is just a glimpse of what I can do," Walker said. "I've already started writing for my next album."

    Good on Stan!!! I never thought Stan was a fool and his learnt from the other idol winners mistakes about reading the fine print..I am so glad the money I paid for his album/single some will go to him..not all to Sony! in the idol forum they went on about Sony just wanting the dollars and that the winners get left with zilch..but at least our Stan won't be..and it is good to read about him writing at the moment fingers crossed 'save me' is on his new album..I have a feeling that Stan made sure that any contract for this album coming out in March it will have some of his own songs..haha I can just see JD's face when Stan was announced the winner! I wonder if he knew that Stan would not be putting his mark on any contract till it was read by a lawyer..LMAO..

    I reckon Sarah he made sure he had some say in what his album was going to be like..if he got a lawyer for the contract he would have made sure some input in what he wants is done on albums is heard..when his been interview he goes on about going overseas and producing so I wonder if his got something in line?

    Thanks josie for the post

    Stan is a smart young man and most importantly he has his family looking after him and his financial dealings... April, as I said previously just by chatting with her a few times, I know she is a loving, caring mother and a wise woman. Stan is so lucky to have her doing his best interests in this business. Good on you Walkers!

    Stan's getting a weekly wage! Their actions to protect Stan's financial position it worked beautifully apparently. I remember reading about Damien not getting any paid royalties from his sales and that he couldn't pay his bills. He had a wife and kid to support... how sad that was. Luckly Stan's family has that covered.

    I was VERY happy to read that article.
    He's such a sweet kid. I would have felt really cranky if he was shoved around by sony. The Walker clan are not only talented but they have the brains to go with that talent too.

    I thought you would like this post girls/boys one of the biggest issues is how Sony has treated the ex idol winners before. Why some people did not want to buy his album/single was that they thought it would all go into Sony's pocket..so very glad all his hard work promoting/signing and singing is that he gets his share of his hard work as well

    ..so far all is going well for Stan. So very happy for that! And I am certain April, with her wise ways, will keep it real... I also think the Walkers have listened to some experienced people..Erena Clark, probably Guy too. Like I said before in another post (corporate Oz) dont be fooled by STANS easy going nature.. he is SMART!

    i have a look at the albums available by damien leith, and there are at least 4 albums. So it seems that stan is at least going to produce 4 albums because of how he is going to manage his money. Goo stan!! :)

    I love the acousitc version of BB... hope he puts it in the next album... it's soulful, it's a Stan song when he does that version...

    I'm not sure about the 4 albums... rules change every year I guess and could be different now. You would think once one enters in a contract with a production company is given a plan or targets to accomplish during the life of that contract...
    Anyone knows for how long Stan has been signed with Sony? 1, 3 or 5 years?

    What i mean about the "4 albums " is that Damien was ABLE to make 4 albums even though from what the stories say is that damien didnt have much cash. So hopefully stan is going to do better in this department, so more Stan songs to come out and hearr...yeahhhhhh!! :)

    ALso, i was thinking exactly what you guys were saying, i listened to the acoustic version of Black box on youtube yesterday , with his brother and another big guy on his right, and it sounded "stan" like soulful, it was awesome!

    I have been checking itunes top ten charts daily, and black box has climbed to number 6, about 3days ago, and stayed there. and his album is moving from #2-3 place..so great ! :) :) :)
