Lee DeWyze launched the pivotal stage of what was already a high-profile musical career with his Vanguard Records debut – Frames, in the summer of 2013.

What followed was a high-caliber list of praise from the LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Yahoo Music, Rolling Stone, and dozens upon dozens more.

“I hunkered down and wrote an album,” the Chicago native explains. “I wanted to take it back to what I’m really about, which is writing emotionally charged, meaningful songs. It wasn’t like I wanted to find a label and then decide what kind of album to make. I knew what kind of album I wanted to make and knew I could make. It’s going back to the kind of music I’ve always loved. I grew up listening to Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel—folk-based acoustic music. Don’t get me wrong—my experience on the show was great. But for someone like me and the kind of music I make, that only takes you so far. It feels really good to get back to the grass roots of what I’m about. The way I see it, everything that’s happened throughout my career has happened so that I can make this record.” The show DeWyze is referring to is American Idol, which he won in 2010.

DeWyze played guitar, piano, mandolin, banjo and drums during the recording sessions, during which he collaborated with renowned producer/songwriters Toby Gad, Drew Pearson, Matthew Wilder and Phil Allen, as well as mixer extraordinaire Jim Scott. “I’ve never felt a connection with my music, more than I do right now,” DeWyze says, making no effort to hide his excitement. “It’s a very real thing, and it feels right.”

Frames garnered many licenses and syncs and proved that DeWyze was not only a great singer, but an extremely talented song-writer. Shows like Nashville, Reign, and Hart of Dixie all used his music, as did ESPN, and several independent films. Blue Cross Blue Shield recently used the song ‘Don’t Be Afraid” as part of their national 2014/2015 campaign.

However, the door really kicked open when Lee penned the song ‘Blackbird Song’ for The Walking Dead in March of 2014. An original song that he wrote specifically for the show itself.

Blackbird Song has accumulated over 50k single unit sales, 2M collective YouTube views, and has over 1.1M Spotify streams. The song is considered one of the top 10 syncs of the 2014 by the Music Guild Association.

In 2015, DeWyze will release an onslaught of music and video content, and continue his relentless touring here in the US and overseas.

Lee has a #1 song in Ireland called Lullaby that was recorded and performed by Ronan Keating.

He also has a #3 song in Italy called Magnetic Heart recorded and performed by Marco Mengoni.

“I’m finally in the lane I belong in, and I feel like I can just go.” DeWyze says in anticipation of what he’s preparing to unleash in 2015.

Billboard Magazine states, "My Silent Bravery plays like a major label signing, from its production savvy, eloquent lyrics, authoritative imaging, polished web site, a dedicated Northeast U.S. fan following, merchandising, and most important, a chockablock collection of winning songs. My Silent Bravery is destined to make major noise."

My Silent Bravery symbolizes persistence, perseverance and inner strength to overcome obstacles in the face of adversity. It is this type of determination that helped Matthew Wade of My Silent Bravery overcome a sports injury in his youth which led him to pursue his passion in music. The injury opened the door to spirituality and a higher calling. Matthew realized he wanted to become a better person and a more sharing individual. Through personal work and transformation, he learned the importance of “paying it forward” and now feels one of his missions in life is to help inspire others to do the same by delivering his positive message to the masses through the music of My Silent Bravery.

Diamond from Coal is the latest and fourth LP from MSB and it recently debuted in the Top 40 of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Best-Sellers chart. The album was produced by Anthony Resta (Collective Soul, Guster, Shawn Mullins) & Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, Augustana) and was recorded in Boston and Los Angeles. The second single off the album “On My Side” was recently remixed by Grammy award winning Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Smash Mouth) and Peter Zizzo, (Avril Levine, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz) in New York. The song was the runner up for "Song of the Year" award in the Songwriting competition Song of the Year. The music video for the first single off of the new album entitled "Amazing" was picked up for rotation on MTV.

Can't Quit Deluxe Edition the third LP from MSB was also produced by Resta and features a track with Grammy nominated recording artist, Matisyahu. The Deluxe Edition also features the new remix track, Four Yearz, produced by Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Kesha, Katy Perry).The album’s three singles, Can’t Quit, To Give (featuring Matisyahu), and Burnt Out (Acoustic) have collectively amassed over 1 million views on youtube with Burnt Out (acoustic) reaching as high as #2 on youtube’s most popular page . (Www.Youtube.Com/Mysilentbravery). To Give (featuring Matisyahu) was nominated at the Independent Music Awards 2013 for best Social Action Song. Can't Quit was nominated for album of the year at Indie Music Digest and the album’s first single and title track also picked up honorable mention for the songwriting competition, Song of the Year.

The Cant Quit release came on the heels of MSB's first two albums “Uncharted Territory”, “Are You Prepared” and successful placements on the CW's One Tree Hill, CBS’ People Choice Awards, NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, MTV's Real World and True Life, The Oxygen Network's Bad Girls Club, the History Channel's American Pickers and many others. These placements, along with spins on over a combined 500 AAA, A/C and CMJ reporting college radio stations, a top ten hit on the FMQB A/C chart, have helped the band continue to turn heads, make noise and gain local and national supporters alike. Boston Music critic Bill Copeland predicts “MSB may be Boston's Next Big Thing”. While the UK’s Neil Thomas at Rock and Roll View questions, “Why this artist doesn't have the backing of a major label yet is quite beyond me.”

My Silent Bravery played 300 shows between 2009-2011 and from 2012-2014 MSB shared the stage with national acts including Daughtry, Delta Rae, Howie Day, Kris Allen, John Waite, The Wailers, Candlebox, Ryan, Cabrera, Jason Castro, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton, Ed Kowalczyk (Live) and Rusted Root. MSB recently toured with Tyler Ward in August 2014 and will be joining Anna Nalick on some dates this fall. Diamond from Coal the Remixes is the next project for MSB and will be released this winter.

My Silent Bravery is endorsed by Gibson.
