As for what fans can expect of Dewyze’s sound, he describes it as a mix ofÂ ”Ben HarperÂ meetsÂ Kings of LeonÂ meetsÂ Soundgarden.” Dewyze adds, “So folk with a little rock with a little edge to it, but still keeping it kind of acoustic. I always write these folky songs and then I end up belting it out.”
