19 year old Singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks, hailing from his family’s farm in central New York State, is fast establishing himself as an authentic original, Americana artist with an old soul. His deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the US.
As a folk/blues singer-songwriter, who cut his teeth at local farmers markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe, and The Bitter End, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality tv, but quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win season 8 of NBC’s The Voice .
Fresh from that whirlwind, Sawyer went forward with the release of his major label debut, A Good Storm , with Republic Records, an impressive blend of soulful Folk, blues, and rock, entirely written or co-written by Sawyer. His 2016 A Good Storm Tour included 62 shows across the US.
For 2018, Sawyer has once again gone independent; the highly-anticipated Hide Your Ghost, entirely written and produced by Fredericks, sheds the high gloss major label treatment, and stays true to Fredericks’s honest and elegantly stripped down style, a self-described “free range folk”, incorporating elements of blues, roots rock, and jazz with live instrumental arrangements throughout. Considered one of the top ten Americana Albums of 2018 so far, Chris Griffy of AXS magazine calls Hide Your Ghost “a bluesy folk rocker with a no-frills production that relies on Fredericks’ raw voice to carry the emotional weight.”
Beginning in June, Fredericks embarks on an extensive tour throughout the US and Canada, in support of Hide Your Ghost. For a full tour schedule, please visit www.sawyerfredericks.com/tour .
Seattle’s WOLFCHILD is a collective of musicians creating a sound that blends the worlds of lyrical dreamy-folk music with the dramatic cinematic swells of Pink Floyd-esque alt-rock.
Frontman Gabriel Wolfchild spent his early years cutting his teeth as an acoustic singer-songwriter and became known for his tenderly poetic and at times tragic style that allows listeners to open up, dive deep, and explore the full extent of their own emotional passageways. His songwriting is met with ethereal 5 piece vocal harmonies, soaring horn bellows, gravity-defying guitar, and potent percussion and bass lines to create an immersive sound that blurs the line between rock show and performance art.
In 2017 the band independently released their first EP debut, Mornings Like These, produced and recorded by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius) at the famed London Bridge Studio.
Recently, back at the studio, they have prepared a full length record set to release in 2019. The new album is a testament to the current state of the world and the turbulent time we as human beings are all being forced to reckon with.
