Bishop Signed a Record Deal in 2021
In late 2021, Bishop announced that she signed a record deal with 19 Recordings, the News-Press reported in November 2021. Bishop told the outlet she’d signed about four months previously.
“It was really great,” she shared at the time. “Because I was like, ‘OK, now I actually, for sure, 100 percent get to make music and get on a roll.”
The music is set to be published by BMG, which partners with 19 Recordings and “American Idol.”
It’s likely that Bishop will be releasing an album at some point in 2022.
Bishop shared the news in an Instagram post saying farewell to 2021.
“This has 100000000% been the best year of my life so far,” Bishop wrote on Instagram on December 29, 2021. “I am so grateful to have developed such a strong support system in such a short amount of time. I have met so many beautiful people who have made such a strong impact on my life.”
According to the post, Bishop will be releasing new music.
“This year was FULL of love, learning & beginnings,” she wrote. “Next year is going to be just as great and I’m SOOO excited for you guys to hear the new music. Working on this upcoming project has been so insanely fun.”
She concluded, “I discover something new about myself during every song and everyone involved in the music is just so unbelievably talented. It’s still crazy to me how being at such a low point in my life last year brought me to my happiest and highest self this year. The growth has been fast but beautiful and is ongoing. Thank you guys so much for everything you do, i love you all.”
