Yes, THE Lee. As in American Idol, Lee Dewyze.
Lee Dewyze: 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, DeWyze displays his true nature as an artist on his major-label debut Live It Up. The title track captures the easy-going sprit of the album — a breezy blend of rootsy pop, rock, and folk, anchored by DeWyze’s soulful, husky voice and bright-sounding acoustic guitar.
Chantelle Barry: CHANTELLE BARRY’s music is soulful and organic. With such a broad range of musical influences from Jason Mraz, The Beatles, Ingrid Michaelson, Elvis Presley, Doris Day and Sade (to name a few) Chantelle is undoubtedly “an old soul with a new sound”. Australian native, Chantelle Barry first caught the public’s eye in 2000 when she won Australia’s version of POPSTARS, earning a coveted spot in the all-girl pop group, Bardot. Currently residing in Los Angeles, Chantelle has returned to her singer/songwriter roots and independently released her debut solo album ‘Simple Things’ which she toured in Australia at the end of 2009, featuring a performance on Good Morning Australia.

Tony Ferrari: Bursting forward with the passion of soul and jazz, Tony Ferrari brings forth a new and refreshing flavor to pop music. Blending the borders of genres and exposing the deepest of emotions, this young singer-songwriter is sure to move you.
Tony loved to write poetry and short stories from a very young age. Along with his grandfather, who was a published poet, he would spend most of his days writing and illustrating. Having no background in music, Tony picked up the guitar as he entered high school simply so he could play music with friends. Upon the passing of his Grandmother, he found that his grandfather had given up writing. Tony considered this his time to take over the tradition, and he would do so through music.
Having only three years of experience under his belt, Tony has played prestigious venues all over California. From the House of Blues in Hollywood, to Zoey's Cafe in Ventura, to The University of San Diego, this young musician has started a wave along the golden coast. He has had the honor of playing beside musicians such as Chris Pierce, Tony Lucca (The Voice), Anuhea, Matthew Santos, Ingrid Michaelson and many more. Looking to tour more extensively since the album release, Tony will be hitting other states soon.
The highly anticipated debut album, "Signs," was released in April, 2012. Upon its debut, the album reached #8 on the iTunes Charts for it's genre!
This Soul, Jazz, and Pop infused record brings a new and true style forward. Singles "Signs" and "Fire" show hints of the soulful styles of Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, while "Made For Two" brings back the sounds of Motown. Heartfelt ballads like "All the Way Back" and "Life Through A Telescope" explode with emotion. And crowd favorites "Gate to the Sun" and "Distance" are laid back beach jams with that pure soul touch.
