Sawyer Fredericks has certainly come a long way from the 88-acre upstate New York farm where he grew up. However, home is still a big part of his soulful, contemporary folk sound. His stark honesty and soulful delivery turned him into a national phenomenon during the eighth season of NBC's Emmy Award winning The Voice. As part of "Team Pharrell," he emerged as the "Youngest Victor in the show's history" at just 16-years-old. Moreover, he made Voice history, becoming "The First Artist to Land 14 Songs in the iTunes Overall Top 200 Songs Chart in One Week." All in all, his digital sales exceeded 1 million cumulative singles, making him one of the show's most successful artists ever.
