The very talented young American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Sawyer Fredericks is proof of what quality targeted training can do in a person’s life. At age 16 in 2015, the rising star became the second youngest person at the time to have won the NBC Talent Hunt challenge, The Voice, and many people seem to think that that’s where it all started.
Fredericks started his journey in the music industry by receiving voice training at age 11. Within a year of this, the starlet started performing at open mic shows and events organized in his community and had his first show at 12. He also started performing at farmers markets in Amsterdam and Gloversville, New York. At age 13, he was a finalist in the Young Artist Talent Search in Pawling, New York. Imbued with the success of that first attempt at a public artists competition, Sawyer started his musical career that same year by making his first demo, recording six original songs.
Then, the following year at age 14, Fredericks released his first ever studio album, an LP titled Out My Window. Although the meteoric riser would later become notable for performing other people’s works, that his studio release had 15 original songs that became an instant hit altogether. No doubt, this signaled the arrival of a superstar in the making.
Sawyer has been around a few years but he has achieved far more than what most people who have been around for many years have not dared. Read on to get all the facts you need to know about the young talent.
