AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 9 WINNER LEE DEWYZE TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM, LIVE IT UP, ON NOVEMBER 16

will debut ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ October 13

Los Angeles, CA — Last May, Lee DeWyze thrilled millions of fans when he was crowned the Season 9 winner of American Idol. Now the wait is over for original music from this self-taught singer, songwriter, and guitarist, who will release his major-label debut album, Live It Up, on November 16 on 19 Recordings/RCA Records. Lee’s first single “Live It Up” will debut ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ October 13.

“Putting out an album on a major label is truly a dream come true,” says 24-year-old DeWyze, a native of Mount Prospect, IL, who had built up a sizeable following on the Chicago club scene when he first auditioned for Idol in June 2009 at the urging of his bandmates. He was the only male contestant never to land in the competition’s bottom three contestants. “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.”
