Here is Lee's Bio: Lee won American Idol Season 9
Lee DeWyze was born on April 2, 1986 in Mount Prospect, Illinois. He gave up school in his senior year but his interest in music had dragged him back to classroom. He actually started singing since he was just a kid but didn't find a strong passion in music until 17. In order to polish his skills, he began learning how to play guitar, piano and drums. Also, he accepted offer to perform at local house parties.
From there, Lee was signed to an indie label WuLi Records and formed a band under moniker Lee DeWyze Band. Along with his bandmates Louis Svitek, Ryan McGuire and Jeff Henderson, he recorded an album titled "So I'm Told" in 2007.
Two years later, he auditioned for "American Idol" in Chicago with a friend Vincent Ferrara. His rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine" made him advance to the next round, becoming one of only 13 people from Chicago, the lowest number out of all 7 audition cities, to make it through to the Hollywood week.
During his participation on the singing competition, Lee garnered praises from judges as one of two finalists on the show and was the only male contestant in Season 9 to never land in the bottom three. He was named the winner of "Idol" contest on May 26, 2010, beating Crystal Bowersox.
As a champion, Lee got signed to 19 Recordings Limited which will drop his debut album in a joint deal with RCA Records. His rendition of U2's "Beautiful Day" which was performed by him on the finale night once ruled iTunes Digital Songs Chart and debuted at No. 24 on Billboard Hot 100... See MoreSee Less
ABOUT LEE MURDOCK
Broadly acknowledged as “the premier interpreter of songs and tales about the Great Lakes,” Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories in his home region. His research into the music is grounded in the work song tradition, from the rugged days of lumberjacks and wooden sailing schooners, Murdock comes alongside with original ballads of contemporary commerce and revelry in the grand folk style.
To listen to Lee Murdock’s music is to visualize the long, heavily laden deck of an iron ore freighter being tossed by malevolent waves, to envision a choir singing, feel a lover’s lament, nurture a love for an isolated shoreline … and much more.
Murdock has been compared to the late Canadian songwriter, Stan Rogers, with a singing voice and a respect for musical traditions that is reminiscent of the great Burl Ives. Indeed, his repertoire is a seamless blend of the old work songs, mixed with his own original compositions and the work of songwriters such as Shel Silverstein, Woody Guthrie, Pat Dailey, Larry Penn and others.
On the traditional side, Murdock draws heavily on the archives of authentic sailing songs collected in the early twentieth century. Housed at the University of Michigan, Professor Ivan Walton’s collection of songs of the Great Lakes sailors was unpublished until 2002, when Detroit journalist Joe Grimm completed Walton’s work, published by the Wayne State University Press and titled, Windjammers, Songs of the Great Lakes Sailors. Murdock’s contribution of the musical scores to the text filled a long-missing link in North American folklore and song.
While other musicians have revived some of the songs collected by Walton, Lee Murdock has been the primary artist in bringing these songs to life, and audiences have readily embraced these new, “old” songs and asked for more. “The discovery of this vast collection of American maritime music was amazing to me,” says Murdock. “And to think that it exists over 1000 miles from any salt water.” Murdock blends the traditional songs to appeal to contemporary musical tastes, reaching out to new audiences with his stories and songs from the inland waterways.
Bringing a deeper understanding of the folk process, Lee’s repertoire combines historical research with contemporary insights. Making folk music for the modern era, Lee Murdock’s work is a documentary and also an anthem to the people who live, work, learn and play along the freshwater highways of North America....

Warren Miller Film TourWarren Miller Film Tour
The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent. In this year’s film, WME travels the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.
In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride.
From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud—and often downright nervous.
WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike “Bird” Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. And still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.
For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Bigger, deeper, fresher than ever.
Warren Miller’s Line of Descent will premiere in October 2017 with U.S. film tour screenings soon-to-be-released and shows to follow in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, China, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and more. For teasers, athletes and locations go to warrenmiller.com.
