"'Voice' Champ Sawyer Fredericks Shares 'Flowers for You': Album Premiere"
"Sawyer Fredericks digs deep on his fourth album, Flowers For You". Drawing from 9 years of songwriting, on Flowers For You, Sawyer weaves songs that are poignant, provocative and at times personal.
Musically, "The goal of this album for me was I wanted to feature the band more on this one". "I feel my last album (2018's Hide Your Ghost) was mainly focused on myself and more emotional lyrics. This time I wanted to get more rock tunes on there and show some of my blues roots. It conveys a little more how we perform when we're live. We have a lot of rockin' tunes when we're live."
Singer/Songwriter Sawyer also plays accoustic guitar and assumed the role of producer on Flowers For You, which features his Band; Jerome Goosman, Guitar, Gannon Ferrell, Bass Guitar and Chris Thomas, Drums and Percussion. Lies You Tell and Days Go By, features musical guests, The Accidentals, Sav Buist, violin and Katie Larson, cello.
Flowers For You was mixed and recorded by Ariel Shafir at Dreamland Recording Studios in Woodstock NY.
