The Voice season 8 winner Sawyer Fredericks has just released his second studio album Hide Your Ghost.
Hailing from his family’s farm in Upstate New York, according to the singer’s Facebook bio, Sawyer “is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original, Americana artist with deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, & powerful live performances.”
After a surreal couple of years, winning NBC’s The Voice and releasing a major label album, A Good Storm, with Republic Records, Sawyer has in many ways come full circle, back to his roots, back to his more organic approach to living and creating music.
At only 18, he is once again independent, having crafted his sophomore offering, Hide Your Ghost, at Dreamland Recording Studios, in historic Woodstock, with full artistic freedom. Hide Your Ghost stays true to Sawyer’s honest and elegantly stripped down style, a “free range folk” incorporating elements of blues, roots rock, latin & jazz with all live instrumental arrangements, largely recorded to analog tape, with an old school approach to production.
The songs tell intense stories of personal, domestic, and social conflict, both timely & timeless, fearlessly embodying both the ugliness and beauty of being human.
The full length album, on which Sawyer penned every tune, is available now at iTunes.
