Sawyer released a New Official Music Video for his original song Born. Born is an ode to maturation, written when he was 18, Sawyer has said that it was only after he had completed Born that he realized there was an autobiographical thread woven through its verses.
Sawyer started performing at Open Mics and Farmers Markets at 12 years old, where he was always accompanied by his Mom Kirsten. At 15 Sawyer was Scouted to participate in the Reallity TV Singing Competition Show NBC's The Voice and Kirsten was by his side through the journey. At 16 years old Sawyer won the Voice, a Recording Contract with a Major Record label, signed with a new Management team and embarked on a National Tour, criss-crossing the country playing iconic venues like the Troubadour and the Bowery Ballroom, and through it all Kirsten was by his side.
Sawyer shed the record company and in 2020 at 21years old, an Independent Artist in full creative control, Sawyer produced and recorded Born for his Flowers For You Album and teamed with Jenny He to put visuals to his words.
