Sawyer Fredericks Image

Sawyer Fredericks

Hailing from his family's farm in central New York State, 19 year-old singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original artist with an old soul.

Fredericks shot into limelight after he won Season 8 of The Voice, with his songs selling over a million units on iTunes. Fresh from that whirlwind, Sawyer went forward with the release of his major label debut, A Good Storm, with Republic Records, an impressive blend of soulful folk, blues and rock, entirely written or co-written by Fredericks.

His beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever-growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the US.

For 2018, Sawyer has once again gone independent. The highly-anticipated Hide Your Ghost sheds the high-gloss major label treatment, and stays true to Frederick’s honest and elegantly stripped-down style, a self-described “free range folk”, incorporating elements of blues, roots rock, and jazz with live instrumental arrangements.

Amelie Patterson

Hailing from Banff, Alberta, and serving as the town’s first Poet Laureate, Amelie Patterson leads as a strong ambassador for women songwriters.

The clear-voiced, honest and tenacious troubadour’s music traverses territories from blues to folk rock. Her debut album Roll Honey Roll was released in May 2016 at Canadian Music Week, and went on to win YYC Alternative Recording of The Year in 2017. Patterson then took to the road touring across Canada hitting stages at Calgary Folk Music Festival, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, TED Talks, and venues across Alberta and BC. The first single off the album, “Tic Tac Blues” was featured in 509 Productions winter edit for pro snowmobile competitor Nadine Overwater.

Patterson is currently writing and working on a comprehensive new recording project that will include collaborations with musicians and producers from all over the country. She performs with her band based in Calgary, Alberta.
