Following up on his two sold out shows in 2016, winner of NBC’s The Voice — Sawyer Fredericks — returns to The Center for the Arts for two nights on Thursday and Friday.

Eighteen 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, Fredericks 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 eight of NBC’s The Voice.

Fresh from that whirlwind, Fredericks 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 him. His 2016 “A Good Storm” Tour included 62 shows across the US. For 2017, Fredericks has once again gone independent, is busy crafting his sophomore offering, with full artistic freedom, and continuing to tour.
