Singer-songwriter Lee DeWyze’s rousing emotionality and storyteller songwriting has enthralled both fans, and high-profile film/TV/advertising sync licensing tastemakers, earning him over 30 prime placements in just a few years.
There is a crystallizing moment in Lee’s childhood that poetically pre-figures his nascent gift as an empathic and sensitive songwriter. It’s become a piece of lore in the DeWyze household. When Lee was just four, his mother was listening to John Denver’s “Sunshine On My Shoulder,” and noticed Lee was crying. Turns out, he was so taken aback by the song it moved him to tears.
“Songs are magic for me—I’ve always wanted to live inside them,” the Mount Prospect, Illinois-based artist says. “My aim with my music is to give people a moment of transcendence where they can step outside their world and into the song. I want to spread the magic.”
Lee’s latest is a darkly cinematic album that represents a profound breakthrough in the power of letting one’s emotions take reign in creativity. Paranoia—out February, 16, 2018 on Shanachie Entertainment—grants the listener intimate access to an achingly beautiful netherworld that’s both seductive and sagely wise.
Lee is a visionary songwriter with a catalog of seven albums, and a robust profile of sync placements and features. His songs brim with sophisticated hooks and heartfelt storyteller lyrics. Lee is a hands-on artist and ensures that every facet of his creativity reflects his artistic authenticity. To that end, he overseas every aspect of his albums, including co- production, album artwork, and video treatments.
