Singer-songwriter, and American Idol winner of Season 9, 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, is coming to Succasunna.
“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 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 oversees every aspect of his albums, including co-production, album artwork, and video treatments.
Paranoia, released in 2018, is an immersive 10-song collection that lures you in with engrossing narratives of struggle, salvation, and vulnerability. “I’m at a point in my life where I feel more open to sharing my experiences. “There is a lot of difficult things revealed on this record, but the songs are meant to show the light in the darkness.”. Lee confides. “This is the beginning of a new chapter for me. It’s like discovering a new door in a house you live in—you walk into another room, and there are four more doors to explore in that room. But maybe one of those doors goes back to the comfy living room,” Lee says laughing.
