Singer-songwriter Lee DeWyze broke through as the winner of the 2010 American Idol season but has been one of the few Idols to achieve a successful post-Idol career that has evolved musically into the alternative music realm. As a result his music has been featured in many film and television shows (Lee’s “The Blackbird Song” was chosen as one of 2014’s most influential songs according to the Musicians Guild) including The Walking Dead, Elementary, Suits, Nasvhille and others, as well as NASCAR commercials and the national campaign song for Blue Cross/Blue Shield. His previous album, Oil & Water, debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Folk chart.
His latest, Paranoia, is a passionate, atmospheric work that blends electronic textures with Lee’s evocative vocals and acoustic guitar. A concept album that details the many facets of a romantic relationship, the album is both deeply personal and highly moving.
