Since winning Season 8 of The Voice, now-21-year-old Sawyer Fredericks has been hard at work perfecting his style of songwriting and creating life experiences to draw from in his work. With latest single "Born," Fredericks taps into the dark side of his artistic sensibility, delivering a poignant and emotional ballad about the contradictions inherent to finding love and lasting companionship.

With a rugged voice and natural lyricism that extend from his journey of growing up as a working musician, Fredericks continues to fan the passionate flames of his dedicated fanbase with regular contact on socials and the general feeling that Fredericks is always ready to engage in honest discussion with his fans about art, music, or pretty much anything. His authentic and heartfelt mix of poetry and indie-folk has touched a nerve deep within our collective consciousness. Sawyer's latest full-length offering "Flowers for You" is his best yet, featuring what is now a signature mix of blues, roots rock, and jazz.

Don't want you
To take my scars
I want you
To tear me apart
So long you've
Kept me warm
I need you to let me be
Born

This song is featured on our Roots playlist.
