Lee DeWyze ‘Live It Up’ album a blend of folk, rock and rootsy pop
HollywoodNews.com: Lee DeWyze, the winner of this year’s “American Idol,” will be releasing his new album “Live It Up” on November 16. 19 Recordings/RCA Records are producing.
DeWyze exclaimed in a release “Putting out an album on a major label is truly a dream come true. I’m excited for all the people who supported me throughout Idol to hear what I can do with my own songs. The album shows a whole different side of me and I’m so proud of it.”
“Live It Up” will also be the album’s title track and the first record to drop. DeWyze worked with such collaborators as Toby Gad, John Shanks and Espionage in fusing a mélange of rootsy pop, folk and rock. DeWyze recorded the album while on the American Idols Live Tour this summer.
The singer, 24, cut his teeth on the Chicago club scene prior to his “Idol” audition. He is known as the only male to never rank in the competition’s bottom three contestants.
Monsters and Critics had the headlines.
