The American Idol sensation
With his rough-hewn voice and laid-back Midwestern charm, Lee DeWyze won over millions of viewers as a contestant and eventual winner of the ninth season of American Idol. An accomplished singer, guitarist, and songwriter who had already built a following on the Chicago club scene by the time he auditioned for Idol, Lee says, "I love guys like Cat Stevens, Kris Kristofferson, Dave Matthews, and Ray LaMontagne. I'm a sucker for hard-edged vocals over pretty melodies and catchy grooves." Lee's second album, "Frames," made Guitar World's list of the top ten acoustic albums of 2013, and his original "Blackbird Song" has been one of the big viral hits of recent years. He comes to Michigan with a chilling new song, "Paranoia," recorded at the Ohio State Reformatory Prison Chapel, the filming site of The Shawshank Redemption. Songwriter Frank Viele opens.
