If you’re visiting Windrake Farm in Fultonville, NY, and you’re looking for Sawyer Fredericks, it’s best to be very quiet and listen. You should be able to hear him singing, whether he’s bringing hay to the cows, collecting eggs, riding his quad or playing Elder Scrolls Online. If his hands are free, he’s probably also strumming his guitar. Sawyer is a 16 year old singer and prolific songwriter, who learned his first guitar chords in the fall of 2010. Since then, he has written over 3 dozen complete songs, and countless “doodles,” as he calls them.
Videos of his performances can be found on YouTube and on his musician Facebook page. In 2012 he recorded (and copyrighted!) his first demo CD with six of his original songs. And in June 2013 Sawyer released his first full length album, Out My Window, with 15 original songs. In spring of 2015, coached by Pharrell Williams,
Sawyer became the winner of Season 8 of NBC’s The Voice. “Out My Window” CDs can be purchased in physical and digital format at CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, and more. All of Sawyer’s performance songs from The Voice can also be found on iTunes. Sawyer is currently at work on his debut major label album with Republic Records.
Sawyer’s earliest public performances were a few years ago before he was even a teen, when he performed at the Towne Crier Cafe.
