“Recording and writing ‘Oil and Water’ was the most liberating experience I’ve had creating music so far in my career. It has been fulfilling and special to be able to tour around the US sharing it with people and making new fans. I look forward to bookending the year with a tour of the Northeast.”
Lee DeWyze discovered music at an early age and developed a strong passion for songwriting as he listened to several influential albums growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. His depth as a songwriter, along with his earnest ability to craft a balance of harmony, melody, and deep emotion, is a direct reflection of some of Lee’s earliest influences including Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens and Johnny Cash.
As a teen Lee learned to play guitar, piano and drums which eventually led to him writing his own songs. Before the age of 20 he recorded two albums for an independent label in Chicago while working two jobs. In a twist of fate Lee decided to audition for FOX’s American Idol and was crowned the winner of Season 9. After winning American Idol Lee DeWyze released his major label debut album “Live It Up” (RCA) in 2010.
His critically acclaimed album “Frames” (Vanguard Records) followed in 2013 and the single “Fight” reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot AC charts for 10 weeks. The accompanying music video, produced and directed by Lee, won first place at the Los Angeles Indie Film Festival.
In 2014 the song “Blackbird Song” was featured on the hit show “The Walking Dead” and went on to garner over 6 million YouTube views, 3 million Spotify streams and 75,000 singles sold. In 2016, after signing with Shanachie Records, Lee released his latest album “Oil & Water”. He spent much of 2016 on the road and writing new music which he will release in 2017.
