A Good Storm is the new Debut studio album by American singer–songwriter Sawyer Fredericks Which is Expected to release via itunes by this friday may 13th 2016 Digitally. He’s best known for winning the eighth season of The Voice in 2015. In the meantime he released a four song self-titled EP last fall that included the single, “Take it All.”
By comparison, “This Fire” is the most hopeful song on the album: a midtempo ballad in 3/4 time that opens with cello and burns with the flush of early love. “Shots Fired” is the least, a battle-themed breakup tune that could have left out the snare drum and still made its point. Not only does Sawyer have a powerful and unique vocal sound, he wrote or co-wrote all these songs from age 14 to 16. How is it possible for someone so young to have such a clear vision of who they are musically? Only 17, and this is his second full album of original tunes. A talent like this comes along very rarely, and as good as he is now, I think the best is yet to come.
His music is still rough, still sad. It still bears the old-soul sensibility and incongruously dark subject matter that marked his days on the upstate coffeehouse circuit. Songs about suicide, disillusionment, downward-spiraling love affairs — all there, all sung with his quicksilver vibrato and unflagging, unlikely sincerity.
The kid has no business knowing anything about the topics he addresses in his lyrics, and he has no business sounding so huskily authentic when he sings about them.
Hi Team Sawyer! I’ve worked so hard on this album and I’m so excited for you to hear it! You all have been such amazing support for me, so I want you to have first access to my pre-order before it’s available anywhere else. Thank you again for all your support. So happy to share my music with you!
