“International Christmas Child” a Gift of Love That Keeps Giving

December 24, 2014 Featured, Special Posts No Comments

Christmas Decor 2014

It is unusual, but I think this is what it feels like to love the world; to place the hope for our future on our children, believing that they can succeed where we have failed.                                                            Matthew Todd



Matthew & Nathan Todd

 Each year when I ponder what the Christmas Article should contain, I always consider what will make the greatest impact or best benefit the young artists represented and promoted through this site.

With Christmas being a time of giving, I could not think of a greater example of young artists using their talents to help make a difference in the world than the INTERNATIONAL CHRISTMAS CHILD project.

This CD project spearheaded by a band of brothers from Scotland is a great example of adults helping “Children helping Children”. I asked Matthew and Nathan Todd to share a little about this project with Rivenmaster’s Place and provide insight about each participating young artists.

 Matthew shared;

“I’m coming round to the belief that, just as adults all have an unwritten responsibility to support and nurture children, children have an unwritten responsibility of reminding adults what is important in life. They do this, often, simply by being themselves.”

Guitarist 3D GuyBackstory:

Matthew and Nathan Todd have been running projects for a few years now, all with the goal ‘to inspire and transform’. What could be more inspirational and transformational, they thought, than an album of children singing to help children? What they could not know was, if any would join them in their quest……….

Matthew went on to explain;

“One word could sum up the whole month of October for us: “Apprehension”. The messages were sent out to artists and their managers on October 12 and we awaited the responses. We were asking for a track from about 16 artists which could be included on a compilation album raising funds for Operation Christmas Child. Then the drama began! After several weeks of language barriers, messages going to fake accounts, communications being lost in cyber-space and time rapidly running out, we arrived with 14 young artists buzzing with enthusiasm and ready to submit.”

2015 SantaThe process that followed getting the tracks mastered, artwork made, albums duplicated, website up and promotion started would take pages to describe but, suffice to say, Nathan and I spent many sleepless nights (and days!) at our computers in every spare moment. Nathan being a full time student and a partner in GN Todd (web development), was literally working around the clock, meanwhile I was trying to communicate with 14 different artists, often in languages I spoke very badly or not at all! Then our brother Phil came on board to make our promo video and our cousin Tom got involved with promotion. A generous friend of my fiancé agreed to translate our press release into French, and a professional media consultant got us an article in the Herald. This was becoming bigger every day!

I remember walking into our little Glasgow flat (aka ‘The Ladz Fortress’) about 11pm on a cold November night after a hard day of teaching and choir directing, and seeing Nathan working on the website, Phil (visiting) editing the promo video and Tom working on an animation for our logo. I sat down to answer a message from France and had to stop to think out loud: ‘this is awesome!’ “Nobody told me that making a difference would be this much work, but nobody told me it would be this exciting and fulfilling either!”



The Album:

Our biggest challenge is that people are so bombarded with advertising, especially at this time of year, getting someone to buy something is a real challenge. We in the Western world have also become quite emotionally numb, finding it hard to trust big charities or organizations and no longer believing that buying one CD or even one track on iTunes really can make a difference. To be honest, we are still a long way off our goal which was to raise £2500 (over $4000) for Operation Christmas Child though we are over half way there, but there are other goals which have exceeded our expectations. Every young artist on the album went out of their way to promote the album and some even made personal videos to recommend it to their fans.

There is no currency for inspiration and yet, without it, the whole world could one day just decide to give up. As I promote these young artists, watch them sing and see them sharing their gifts with such passion and enthusiasm I feel a strange tug on my heart-strings. How is it that I can feel a sense of pride and joy in children that are not related to me and, most, not even from my country? It is unusual, but I think this is what it feels like to love the world; to place the hope for our future on our children, believing that they can succeed where we have failed. And, like my God who loved the world so much he wanted to give the best Christmas present anyone could give, it inspires me to give my all to make the world a better place.”

The boys delight their loyal following from all over the world with a unique variety of songs ranging from pop to Scottish folk music.

Clément has a gentle, emotive voice and accompanies himself on piano. His expressive keyboard technique and sweet vocal harmonies are what make his songs uniquely mesmerizing.

France can be very proud to call him her own! Here is his latest music video in which Clément sings in English but with a good dose of French romanticism!

Erin has an unforgettable voice with incredible power and control for her age. She is a rising star in her home town of Paisley, Scotland, and is gathering enthusiastic supporters from around the world.

Though I am sure you will agree that her recording for the album is exquisite, you have not really heard Erin sing until you have heard her live! Her voice has such power and presence; people can hardly believe it is coming from an 11-year-old!

Sheridan Archbold

Sheridan Archbold, 13, Illinois USA, “Oh Holy Night”

It is our great pleasure to premiere Sheridan’s recording of ‘O Holy Night’ on the album. A well known Christmas song, but never before heard quite like this!

Unlike many celebrities, Sheridan is fantastic role-model for younger boys. He is hard working, enthusiastic and not afraid to pursue the art that is important to him.

HERE HE IS SINGING “THE PRAYER” like you have never heard it!

Jordan Bijan Canadian Musical Phenomenon

December 11, 2014 Featured, Jordan Bijan Comments Off

In striving to showcase the very best of young talent and continuing the quest in our search for new emerging talent, Rivenmaster is proud to present the very youngest child to ever be introduced on this site. While we have made it a practice to only feature youngsters between the ages of 8 and 18 we just had to make an exception for 6 year old Jordan Bijan.


Jordan Bijan

Jordan Bijan is a musical phenomenon from Brampton, Ontario. Although he is only 6 years old and just beginning his musical pursuit, he is already showing signs of enormous talent.


His dad shared with me that the earliest sign of Jordan showing a special natural talent was at the age of two. He recalls Jordan sitting in his car seat and singing along with his two sisters. However, Jordan was the only one who could match the pitch of the melodies he would hear.

Jordan’s Dad is a multi-instrumentalist so their living room is often filled with different instruments. One day at the age of five and a half, Jordan came to his dad and asked if he could learn a beat on the drums. His Dad showed him a basic beat, and within minutes, Jordan could play it. Dad would play the piano, and Jordan would keep a beat.

He then wanted to try the piano so his father showed him a few basic chords which he learned instantly. Jordan showed an amazing interest and would come home from his half day Kindergarten class, eat his lunch and go straight to practice.

Once he had built up enough confidence he wanted to record his own songs. Of course he wasn’t satisfied playing just one instrument; he wanted to play them all, said his Dad.

Daves Highway Musicians With A Message

November 27, 2014 Daves Highway, Featured, Singing Groups Comments Off

Daves Highway Banner 2014


Daves Highway

Daves Highway Erika, Zachary, and Delaney Daves


Rivenmaster’s Place is always happy to find youngsters at the beginning of their musical careers. For this site, there is no greater pleasure than following and observing their development from young budding musicians into real super stars. Today’s featured guests are more than just amazing young musicians and vocalists. They are wonderful human beings who are making a difference in the world through their music and moral character.

When I first discovered Daves Highway’s music, they were just young kids doing their thing on YouTube. However, it was not hard to see from their first cover songs that these young people had a special relationship with God, family, and life in general. Their cheerful dispositions, warm personalities, polite responses to comments, and willingness to share with others, convinced me to become a loyal follower and fan for life.


Daves Highway 2014

Apparently I was not alone, as it was shortly after the release of our first article about them entitled “Mississippi Music Magic” published to, that Chris Tomlin took notice of their first cover of his song “Jesus Messiah”………….the rest is history.

Now in their first years of College, Daves Highway has grown into a famous professional young adult singing group. While this website will always remember them as cute little preteens just staring out, what we now hear is one of the most unique and amazing Christian crossover singing groups this country has ever produced.

It is with great pleasure that today I offer their full update presented exactly as it was given to me for your reading pleasure.

I trust, if you have not already joined their thousands of fans that you will by the end of this article.



“It’s been so long since we were “discovered” by our friend Rivenmaster. He posted our story from the very beginning way back in 2009. Since then, so much has changed for us. We’ve gone from a home school to attending college. We’re approaching 200,000 Facebook fans and have over 15 million video views, 4 studio CDs, and have written lots of songs.   And, now we’re kind of waiting to see where our music career might take us next. We’re hoping for a quick departure from college and onto a tour bus, but you never know.

Daves Highway rm 11 2014 new sm


We’ve played for thousands of people across the country, primarily in the southeast and have visited 12 states so far. We’re about to head up to New York to play a concert at “The Brooklyn Tabernacle”, which is very exciting for us.

Daves Highway An Acoustic Christmas

Our journey has enabled us to reach a lot of people and hopefully has demonstrated that the best life is one of character, morals, and honesty. There are shortcuts you can take, but in the end God just wants us to know and honor Him. And, that’s what we plan to do.

All 4 of our studio CDs are quite unique and different. We’ve experimented a lot with our sound learning who we want to be musically and it shows differently on each recording.   Our CDs are all available through our website and we have some other cool stuff there, too.   We also have iTunes, Amazon, and other internet sites selling our songs as well.

Our current CD was released on November 11 and is titled Daves Highway- An Acoustic Christmas. We believe this is our best work thus far. Even though we didn’t write the songs, our interpretation and arrangements of these classic tunes are pure Daves Highway. We recorded the entire record in about a week in a studio tucked away in the mountains near Asheville, NC. The songs were produced By Andrew Reed who made them just the way we wanted them, and we think you’ll love every song!

Daves Highway Live Performance 2014

Daves Highway Live Performance

As for the immediate future, we are going to release several new videos from ‘An Acoustic Christmas’ between now and Christmas. Here’s a new video of one of our favorites “Little Drummer Boy”

Daves Highway Drummer BoyDaves Highway New Music Video “Little Drummer Boy”

We also have a live DVD/CD in the can and ready to distribute. We made the live set back in 2011 at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville, too. It will be neat to look back at the fun we had back then.

We can’t write another word without saying a big THANKS to all of you who have read, liked, subscribed, and shared our posts on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.     Please know that we do our best to read every post.   Without you, we can’t continue to do what we love to do….and that’s making music!

Daves Highway Live 2014

Keep following us! We’re going to take a positive message to everyone who will listen. And most of all, may God bless you.”

Cameron Molloy Singer, Songwriter Extraordinaire

November 18, 2014 Cameron Molloy, Featured Comments Off

 Cameron Molloy 2014 quote

Cameron Molloy was first introduced on this site this past January in an exclusive introductory feature article. We learned much about Cameron and the beginning of his musical career in that publication. Now nearly a year later, we wanted to bring you up to date with this amazing young musical prodigy.

Busy Recording Artist Debut EP

While some young artists are doing a lot of cover songs Cameron has been writing, performing, and recording his own original music. Cameron was interviewed by my good friend Bruce Owens from “Good Morning Hudson Valley” back in 2013, and that interview can still be found on this site in the Radio Interview section.

Cameron PerformsCameron Performs his AWARD WINNING original “Just Can’t Live”

Summer is typically a busy time for young artists and this summer has been no exception for Cameron! At the beginning of summer, he began vocal lessons with Rose Marie Bernaquez (who worked as a voice evaluator for Cirque de Soleil), and also continued with his guitar and music theory lessons. Cameron had twelve bookings at various events over the summer, highlighted with being mentored at a weeklong songwriter’s workshop by Bruce Guthro, Nathan Rogers, Kim Dunn and Chuck Brodsky. In addition, Cameron has continued his support of community fundraising for Cancer Research and other local charitable events.

Cameron Molloy EP


Another milestone in Cameron’s journey this year was the June release of his all original, 5 track EP. It truly was an incredible experience working with local producer Andre Leblanc and the well respected Pumpk’n Patch Studio. The result was a top shelf, radio ready ep, which has been played on Radio stations around the world and locally.

His EP is available everywhere online (itunes, Amazon etc), physical copies are available at CDBaby and signed copies are available directly from Cameron upon request. You will also find a large ad on this site with exclusive clips of his songs on that EP.

Sebastián Urdiales Mexico’s Newest Young Star!

“I am unstoppable because if you have hope I have hope!”                                                                                                      Sebastián Urdiales

Sebastián Urdiales

In our continuing search for rising young talent from every corner of the globe we often come across talent that has already claimed great success in their part of the world, yet not found their way to international attention. It’s with great pride that we introduce for the very first time here at Rivenmaster’s Place Sebastián Urdiales.


Sebastián Urdiales Profile Shot

Thirteen Year Old Sebastián Urdiales

 Thirteen year old Sebastián Urdiales is one of the fastest growing young talents to come out of Mexico City, Mexico! Sebastián who is currently in the 7th grade is a talented young singing performer and actor. He comes with an impressive resume and growing list of experiences both on stage, screen and television.

As soon as I stumbled on his YouTube Channel I wrote to his parents for the full story behind Sebastián. I was soon in contact with his amazing family and well on the way to bringing you his story.

Sebastián was born in Mexico City on September 15th,2001 and his family consists of his Mother, Father, and older sister Olivia, who also serves as his best friend.

Since he was very young, he has had a great interest in nature and animals. His favorite hobby was to go out of town to go fishing and camping. For this reason Sebastián has developed a keen awareness of ecology and care for the environment. Sebastián also has personally rescued a number of pets including snakes, hamsters, parrots, cats, canaries, frogs, turtles, fish and dogs.

Sebastián and Sister

Sebastián and his Sister

Since 5 years old he has practiced Taekwondo and attended a number of competitions throughout his country.

In the same sports club where Sebastián practiced Taekwondo, his sister took dance classes, called Latin Rhythms. Sebastián expressed a great interest in what his sister was doing, but was too small to perform the choreography routines. However, due to his insistence to take dance classes, his Dad spoke to the teacher. The dance instructor said she would start up a sample class for a younger child in order to appease him, but when Sebastián surprised the teacher with his ability, she soon enrolled him as a dancer. He was the smallest in the class, but this fact did not seem to faze him in the slightest.

MattyB-John-Robert Rimel

Matty B has always impressed since his first appearance on the web! He had a very early article published to which I read with great interest. While I visit the Atlanta area often, I have not been able to chase him down for an article. In spite of that, he he has been featured here numerous times in the Video of the Week column. Today Matty B released his brand new original single "I Just Wanna Love You" where he teamed up with my good friend John-Robert Rimel who has been featured here and whom I was privileged to meet in person this past summer.

Aj Silva Christmas 2012

On December 12th, 2010, I introduced Aj Silva here on Rivenmaster's Place! Ajsil continues to pump out extraordinary videos that more than demonstrates his amazing singing abilities. I have no doubt that Anthony will not only continue to improve as a young artist but will be noticed very soon by a producer who will take him under their wings. Aj Silva has a personality that extends far beyond what you see on his videos. His natural ability to shine on the camera and show expression as he sings also makes him a candidate for the film industry.
