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.
