The Accidentals release their long-awaited Vessel album. This power trio from Northern Michigan can’t wait to share the new music, an exciting new stage show, and a powerful narrative on perspective. “The Vessel album is one of the most compelling collections of indie rock and punk folk we’ve heard from this band yet!” – Pop Matters

Joining them for a spectacular night of music is Sawyer Fredericks touring his new album Flowers for You. Voted top ten on No Depression, “Flowers for You is a mix of great energy and exceptional guitar work.” The Accidentals joined Sawyer on strings on the his album and are excited to tour the two releases together in one powerful night of music.

About Sawyer Fredericks

Americana singer-songwriter, Sawyer Fredericks, hailing from his family farm in central New York State, cut his teeth at the age of 13, playing local farmers markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe, and The Bitter End. With his deep, beyond-his-years original lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality tv but, having been scouted by casting directors at 15, he quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win season 8 of NBC’s The Voice.

 

Fresh from that whirlwind, Fredericks 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 Sawyer. Choosing to go independent, for more creative freedom, his 2018 Hide Your Ghost, fully written and produced by Fredericks, sheds the high gloss major label treatment, and stays true to Fredericks’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 throughout. In writing about his top ten Americana albums of 2018 in No Depression and AXS Magazine, Chris Griffy recommends Hide Your Ghost as “a? bluesy folk rocker with a no-frills production that relies on Fredericks’ raw voice to carry the emotional weight.”

 

With song premieres in People Magazine and American Songwriter and an album preview in Billboard Magazine, on May 1, 2020 Fredericks released his 4th album, Flowers For You. “With his second independent album, Flowers For You, Fredericks is expanding his sound even more, moving from bluesy folk into more expansive Americana, rock, and tinges of jazz,” remarks Chris Griffy in Concert Hopper. Two songs from Flowers For You won top awards from the 18th annual Independent Music Awards, Born won in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter category and Amen won the Vox Pop award in the Social Action Song category. Born was recently officially added to SiriusXM’s Coffee House channel.

 

Throughout his career, Sawyer has played many festivals and prestigious venues like the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival with 2019 touring highlights including official showcases at SXSW, AmericanaFest, Folk Alliance International, and BMI’s Island Hopper Songwriter Fest.

About The Accidentals

Texas Lifestyle Magazine chose The Accidentals as the “band to see” at Austin City Limits, SXSW, calling them defiant, young – powerful, and undaunted.”

 

Female –fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals, (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies and FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.

 

In 2019 they released a self-titled LIVE album and a single with New West Records, and toured the UK. They scored an indie film, taught workshops across the country, and finished recording their much anticipated studio album, Vessel, co-produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray) and Tucker Martine (Nico Case, Decemberists). The band toured 150 dates, including backing up Keller Williams, Gabriel Kahane, and Martin Sexton on strings. They wrapped 2019 as guest artists with the TSO Orchestra on original pieces they scored and arranged.

 

The Accidentals usher in 2020 at NAMM, representing Takamine, Fender, LR Baggs, SBC cases, Shure, Liquid Violins, NS design, Roland, Boss, Dream Cymbals, and D’Addario, followed by Folk Alliance International and SXSW.

 

They just launched a podcast titled “Bucketseat Chronicles” and a weekly YouTube series called “#playyourparagon” where they cover female artists that have inspired them.

 

They are releasing a collaborative single with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra and The Rock Hall of Fame on record store day in April, and dropping singles from the new album starting in May.

 

Pop Matters Magazine says, “you can’t define The Accidentals by comparison to any one band”, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “Decemberists, Avett Brothers, Beatles, and Brandi Carlile”.

 

NPR calls them “some of the most compelling songwriters of our time”.

 

They are currently touring nationally and their music can be found online, all the streaming platforms, Barnes and Noble, and at their shows.
