DeWyze sees silver lining: ‘Idol’ winner’s new album more folk-rock

Lee DeWyze knows the rather infamous numbers he’s known for.

Lowest-selling debut for an “American Idol” winner. A single that failed to chart. Worst first week sales of any “Idol” winner.

Despite that and despite the fact he was dropped by RCA last September, the Mount Prospect native and Season 9 “Idol” winner refuses to dwell on the negative.

“I think when people hear dropped from the label, they think dropped from the music industry,” DeWyze said, “when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

“I look at it as a step in my career, and if it hadn’t been for that, I probably wouldn’t have made the album I made now.”

DeWyze said that forthcoming album, his fourth, is much closer to his folk-rock roots than his post-”Idol” release, Live It Up.

“I’ll always be proud of Live It Up,” DeWyze said. ”But if I’d had more control over the album, things would have been a lot different. But that’s the game you play when you go on ‘American Idol.’”

Live It Up was recorded during the frantic period during of endless touring and promotion after DeWyze won “Idol” in 2009. In contrast, the new album took more than a year to make.

DeWyze said what came out of those recording sessions is a more organic, rawer, folk sound — especially on vocals.

“This whole new world of Autotune was not something that came up,” he said.
