Sawyer Fredricks and Loosing Leaves as “The Golden Tree”

19 year old singer/ songwriter Sawyer Fredericks is fast establishing himself as an authentic Americana artist with an old soul. “The Golden Tree” is his newest single that showcases his deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and his raw and soulful vocals. As a folk/ blues performer, Fredricks quickly won over broad audiences with his unique arrangements, going on to win season eight of NBC’s The Voice.

On his newest single, Fredricks has said as such:

“‘The Golden Tree’ to me captures many phases in my life, and is about my musical journey. Growing up playing farmers markets in small towns around my home, and then going on to The Voice and suddenly my music was being heard all around the world, I had so many people who I had never met reaching out to me and telling me these heartfelt stories and hardships. I was only 15 years old at the time, yet I was being idolized. I had parents telling me that they wished there kids were as talented as me, and I worried I was becoming a shadow to young people.”

Anyone looking for a song to unwind to can look no further. “The Golden Tree” is a gorgeous assembly of various acoustics perfectly brought to a peak with Fredricks’ added vocals. In a wistful tone, he covers the topic of being shadowed by too much light, and many things a person experiencing this can feel while always being admired. Primarily, he explains how lonely the spotlight is at times, adding in how a person can completely change due to its overwhelming presence. Overall, this is an incredibly unique topic not covered by many mainstream artists today, and if the folk sound isn’t enough to encourage you to listen, than the message definitely is.
