Lee DeWyze explains the Chicago references on Live It Up album

“The Chicago references were not planned necessarily, ” DeWyze says. “It was more like I was writing about it and that’s where these things happened. Sometimes it’s easier to get an understanding of a song when put in that setting.”

Lee continues, “All the songs are written from a very honest place. It’s me. Like in Dear Isabel, the Lake Michigan reference, or in Me And My Jealousy, ‘Chicago in the winter.’ If you’ve ever lived in Chicago, anyone who has, they know what a winter in Chicago is like. To be going through a tough time here in the winter would be just be all the more worse.”
