CD Review: The Voice Winner Sawyer Fredericks Delivers "A Good Storm"

American singer/songwriter and winner of season eight of NBC's "The Voice," Sawyer Fredericks recently released his debut album titled "A Good Storm." His songs set an iTunes record for "The Voice" and he is one of the youngest winners of the show. He was born in Connecticut, but has since moved to an 88-acre farm in New York. After releasing his first independent album in 2013, his appearance on "The Voice" changed his life forever. 
His new eleven-song release begins with the pop/stomp rhythm of "Take It All" as his voice sounds mature well beyond his sixteen years. His voice soars on the uplifting tone of "This Fire," while fellow "Voice" contestant Mia Z lends her talents to the country/pop appeal of "Stranger." The acoustic starkness of "Still Here" and "A Good Storm" allow you to focus on his exceptional vocals, before Pharell Williams (his coach on "The Voice") adds the dance beats to the album closer "4 Pockets." Sawyer Fredericks is touring throughout California before heading back to the east coast for the Schoharie County Fair in July. To find out more about his new album "The Good Storm," please visit
