Biography

Lee DeWyze will formally launch the pivotal next stage of what is already a high-profile musical career on July 16, when the 27-year-old artist releases his Vanguard Records debut. Though the album is as yet untitled, DeWyze is seriously considering calling it Silver Lining, after the hook-laden lead single, because that phrase succinctly sums up where he’s been and where he’s ...

"Head and shoulders above the rest" --Simon Cowell-American Idol

Product Description

Chicago's Lee DeWyze performs for over 30 million people each week on the most popular television show in the world, American Idol. Before Lee came to the attention of the hit-making franchise, he was a struggling musician working with a small Chicago label called Wuli Records, where he recorded his debut album, "So I'm Told" and the recently released "Slumberland" with producers Ryan McGuire and guitarist extraordinaire, Louis Svitek, well known for his work with Ministry, M.O.D., and Mind Funk. The collaboration is an evocative, haunting mix of multi-instrumental, multi-faceted songs whose artistry draws comparisons to Jack Johnson and Chris Martin. Now a Top Finalist, Lee is being hailed as the next daughtry, with praise from all the judges; Kara DioGuardi declared Lee's voice was a good fit for "radio right now", Ellen DeGeneres has called his performances "great", and the hard to please Simon Cowell has declared that Lee was "the best singer" among the group of men and "may be the one to beat."

I read a lot of feedback before deciding to purchase Slumberland, but having enjoyed Lee's voice on AI, I began downloading one song at a time. Well, I ended up purchasing it because the songs are amazing!
My favorites are Princess, Where You Lie, Flower Child, Stay, Annabelle and Another Sleep Song. Sweet Sweet is a little too country for my taste, but it's many peoples favorite and it is very catchy.
I love Lee's voice and his indescribable style mix of Celtic, Folk, Emo, Rock, Blues...you just have to hear it to understand. Not like the pop songs he sings on AI, Lee is an original with a distinct style, and his songwriting skills show a lot of promise.
This young man has a great and lasting musical future ahead of him and he deserves all his success.

I really fell in love with Slumberland when I chose to scribe the lyrics and realized that Slumberland was not just a collection of songs. It is a story. Art is subjective, of course, but for me, Slumberland is all about learning to recognize, recover, and remember loss. Along the way there is also denial, second-guessing and finally acceptance. The last song is just brilliant in how it closes the final door on the arc but reminds us that what we endure makes us stronger.

Lee DeWyze really feels the lyrics that he writes and even those that he merely covers (e.g., beautiful people, use somebody, the boxer, hallelujah, just to name a few). I hope that the country will give him a chance and not just label him "the next American Idol" because he truly is a self-made artist. He had no vocal training. He just sings and writes from where it counts - the heart. And that is the very definition of a connection.

I highly recommend Slumberland for anyone who wants to take a musical journey. But be forewarned, after listening to the record start to finish, it is hard to go back and casually listen to a song here or there. And forget about the "shuffle" option on your mp3 player. I find that each time I want to listen to the whole thing, start to finish again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album of artistry June 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was very impressed with Lee during his stint on Idol. I enjoyed his interpretations of others songs so I checked him out on you tube and discovered this young man was more talented than I had originally thought. I bought both So I'm Told and Slumberland and have hardly listened to anything else since. Lee is so talented in telling a story thru song and his passion for his music can be heard in every note he sings. He has a very powerful voice for someone so young and he can rock it out with that familiar rasp or sing so sweetly as to bring tears. Where You Lie and Stay (both on Slumberland) are probably two of the best written songs I have ever heard. The emotion behind these songs are so strong one wonders if Lee wrote them from personal experience. Sweet Sweet is just a fun, catchy song that brings to mind cruising with the top down. Every song is great, it's one of the few albums I own that I don't skip any of them.

I don't doubt that Lee would have been "discovered" even without Idol; I'm just glad that we have his music right now. I predict he will have a long successful career and I plan on buying everything he puts on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way better the Daughtry May 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why people are comparing Lee DeWyze to Chris Daughtry. Lee's songs are better written and his voice is by far one of the best I've heard in a long time. Chris Daughtry cannot compete. I can listen to Slumberland over and over again. All the songs are great. I definitely have my favorites i.e. Annabelle, Princess, Stay. But, like I said the whole album is worth your money and then some. This album, right now, is my favorite album to listen too. Lee DeWyze is a great musician I'd rank him in the top spot with some of my favorites: Otis Redding, Van Morrison, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dobbie Brothers, The Black Keys, Citizen Cope to name a few. He's got the chops of Otis redding and the talent of Van Morrison. For those of you who know good music then you understand that he can sing and play well. I just hope American Idol doesn't pop him up. If he stays true to his roots then I think we can all look forward to some more great music on his next album. Definitley buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Believe How Much I Love This June 3, 2010
By TSTBren
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm still surprised at how much I love all the songs on this album. Sure I have favorites, Where You Lie, Stay, Annabelle, Princess, Flower Child ... but there are no songs that I skip. Lee's voice is just amazing to my ears.

Having discovered Lee DeWyze through AI I was expecting more raspy rock type music but after my second complete listen I was in love with his voice and his versatile style even more.

I then purchased So I'm Told, I am as in love with this album as I am Slumberland. Adding more favorites such as Imagination, Red Rover, Love and Misery, Predicament, So I'm Told to name a few.

Anyone wanting a preview of full songs from Slumberland and So I'm Told check out YouTube. Even some of the live versions from his days of playing in bars are enjoyable despite the racket of people around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Current Favorite May 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought the I-Tunes downloads last week and can't stop listening, so decided to buy the actual album today. My #1 favorite is Annabelle. Lee is a great new artist and I'm really looking forward to his next album.
