After recording one album for Republic Records, The Voice season 8 winner Sawyer Fredericks is now an independent artist. It’s a career course that was always meant to be. The singer/songwriter–happiest when hanging out on his family’s upstate New York family farm–seemed destined to chart his own course.
Earlier this year, Sawyer released his first full length independent album, written and produced by himself. The spare, folk driven Hide Your Ghost was recorded mainly on analog tape in the cathedral hall of the converted 1896 St. John’s Church that houses Woodstock’s Dreamland Recording Studios.
A song from that album, “Gasoline,” now has a music video, which was shot at the Glove Theatre in Gloversville New York, on the same street where the singer gave his first open-mic performance as a kid.
“What I like about ‘Gasoline’ is that it can feed many different emotions for me: anger, sadness, and even my dark sense of humor,” Fredericks told Yahoo Music where the video first premiered.
Over the weekend (June 3) the singer played a fundraiser for the renovation of the historic theater which was built in 1914.
