It’s a big show from a big artist in a big house. So it’s a big deal for local music fans — it’s Sawyer at the Swyer.

Sawyer Fredericks, the 17-year-old singer from Fultonville, plays The Egg’s Lewis A. Swyer Theatre in Albany on Sunday. The 8 p.m. show has sold out.

People are still turning out for the musician who won Season 8 of NBC’s hit series “The Voice” in the spring of 2015. Fredericks keeps building his resume, and has spent much of 2016 on the road and in the studio.

The latest project is the “Winter Storm Tour,” which will keep Fredericks busy from Friday — when the tour begins in New York City — until the tour ends in Somerville, Massachusetts, on Dec. 19. Special guest Gabriel Wolfchild will perform at all 12 shows; MiaZ will guest and a couple mid-month shows.

The tour is an encore for a spring-through-early fall tour that put Fredericks on 49 stages across the United States. Both tours support “A Good Storm,” Fredericks’ debut studio album that was released earlier this year.

Here are other highlights from Fredericks’ 2016:

• The singer performed the National Anthem at the “Flags for Heroes and Families” ceremony on Nov. 5 in Utica.

• On October 28, Fredericks played to a nearly sold-out crowd at Gloversville Middle School, a fundraiser for Mountain Valley Hospice. Hospice officials later said the concert was the biggest fundraiser in hospice history; all proceeds helped MVH provide hospice care to patients and families in Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery and Saratoga Counties.

• He performed the National Anthem at the Medal of Honor Patriot Awards Gala on Oct. 8 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

• In September, Fredericks lent his voice to a new duet with Detroit singer-songwriter Olivia Millerschin, who opened during several “Storm” summer tours.

The song, “When,” recently was released on Millerschin’s new album, “Look Both Ways.”
