“KRUSH” – Florida’s Rockin Pre-teen Boy Band

Krush Pirate Fest-62 LiveMeet KRUSH!

It all began in December of 2013 when the parents of young guitar prodigy Nicholas Rothschild became frustrated with trying to find better musicians to play with their exceptionally talented son Nicky. Handpicking each member of the band now called KRUSH, Brad Rothschild and his wife Laurie brought together this group of young preteen boys developing them into what can only be described as a young Rock Band destined for greatness!

Rehearsing weekly at DC Rehearsal Studios these child musical prodigies continue to grow as professional musicians and performers. Each performance only gets better and the KRUSH fan base is quickly expanding from pre-teen admirers to industry professionals. They are capturing the attention of both local and major media and quickly making a name for themselves as the next generation of rock.

Currently the boys are working on a weekly Saturday morning show that is slated for network television with producer Tony Bongiovi creator of legendary PowerStation Studios and former VP of Epic Records, Ron Alexenburg known for his work with Michael Jackson.  The band will be the characters, voice overs and the touring band on this project once it airs.  Krush just won 2015 ALS JAM FOR THE CURE: Battle of the Bands and their lead singer is the winner of 2014 Boca’s Got Talent. In addition they were just named the Judges Choice Winners in The Deerfield Beach Founding Father’s Day Parade. Since their first gig in June 2014 they have opened for some bigger names including Melissa Etheridge, Montgomery Gentry, Smash Mouth, and Heffron Drive and are playing the festival circuit as well. Ranging in ages 10-12 the boys have gained an unbelievable amount of attention in a very short time (8 months). 

The Boys in the Band:

A few of his favorite bands are Guns N Roses, Queen, Zeppelin, ACDC, American Authors and My Chemical Romance.

Nicholas Rothschild is the 10 year old lead guitarist for the band Krush and is from Boca Raton, FL. Nicky has been called a prodigy when it comes to playing the guitar and to watch him leaves you spellbound. 

From the tender age of 6, this rocker has been honing his skills for the world stage. Emulating his favorite rockers, Eddie Van Halen, Jason Becker and Yngwie Malmsteen, Nicky does not just admire them, he strives, hours per day, to become them.

When you speak with Nicky for the first time, you are drawn in by his angelic face and sweet brown eyes, never knowing the secret he keeps.  When you see Nick play his guitar for the first time, you will be left in shock at his gutsy maneuvering and uncanny talent that many adults cannot boast.

Nicky began performing at the age of 7 with the School of Rock under Yazmani Velasquez, who has helped him become the performer he is today. This is where Nicky met the rest of his Krush bandmates and was just named to the School of Rock house band, the youngest performer ever to earn that honor.

He dreams of attending the Berklee School of Music, and making it big with his friends. When you ask Nicky, “Why do you love playing guitar so much?” he kindly responds,

“I love to make people happy,”

Samuel North is the 12 year old bass player and back ground vocalist for the band Krush and is from West Palm Beach, Florida. Swaying to a rhythm all his own, Sam has the uncanny ability to lay down the beat and help keep his team on time. 

When Sam was 3 years old he begged for a violin for Christmas but he ended up strumming it more than bowing it. At the age of 7 he began singing and playing the ukulele as his instrument of choice. He walked in to Havana Hideout to play an open mic, alone, at 9 years old.  He parents knew he needed more.

Sam began at the School of Rock in 2012 where he met his band mate Nicky. They became fast friends and have been playing together ever since. In 2014 Sam began vocal coaching with Mike Soper Music in Wellington, Florida, and is also under the tutelage of Mike Waknine, bassist of “County Line Road.”

Although rock is the genre of choice for Krush, Sam loves all types of music. From Bon Jovi to Jason Mraz, Metallica to Michael Jackson, Daft Punk and Skrillex, he will sing it, guitar it, bass it, and ukulele it to his heart’s content.  He has even begun composing music for video games.

Sam dreams of becoming famous with this band, making music, having fun, and buying his mom and dad a home in Hawaii.

CBS 12 KRUSHWatch KRUSH on TV 12 News

After their first show in June of 2014, the four young musicians were featured on a CBS special called “Extraordinary People”. 

These boys are more than just musical prodigies with amazing musical and performance talent. They are also very involved with charity work having done a number of fund raising events over the last several months. The boys feel it is important to give back to their community whenever possible.   This started over the summer when KRUSH played their first benefit show for the Boca YMCA.  KRUSH held a benefit concert in conjunction with Feeding South Florida on November 1st to raise money, canned goods and awareness.

Sam Hurwitz East Coast Musical Wiz Kid

February 5, 2015 Featured, Sam Hurwitz, Young Male Artists M-Z Comments Off

 “In my world, everything’s a song”          Sam Hurwitz

Sam Hurwitz Profile Photo

Sam Hurwitz

Sam Hurwitz is an 11 year old singer–songwriter who plays guitar and piano, and has been singing, strumming and writing songs since the age of two.  

Sam Hurwitz 3 years old

Three Year Old Sam Hurwitz

 

When Sam was a baby, he seemed to always gravitate towards the toy musical instruments that were in his playroom.  Sam started strumming the guitar and singing and while it would seem that he was singing random words, his parents began to notice that he would strum and sing the same words in the same tune. Thus his first songs (albeit one line songs), “Give me a Garbon” and “Bop a Doo”, were born! 

His mother shared that there was always music playing in their home so it’s clear that Sam was influenced by the type of music that their family listened to.  As early as 2 1/2 years old, Sam could be found strumming and singing along with his favorite band “Wilco”.  In addition to listening to Wilco, Sam’s early music exposure included the alt country bands “Son Volt” and “Uncle Tupelo”, as well as the “Avett Brothers”. 

Watch Sam at 2 years old

At age 6, Sam began taking guitar lessons with Marc Jacoby, a preschool music teacher and member of the bands “Grateful Bro” and “Rockmitzvah”.  Sam’s earliest songs were written before he could actually play guitar and Sam would sing the tune and Marc would take that tune and lay the chords out for Sam.   Sam’s first “real” song, We’re Gonna Get Wet, was written that year.  His current version of  “We’re Gonna Get Wet” is currently listed at number 2 and his song “Maybe Rome” (which you can see below) is listed at number 8 on the independent UK music chart, FabChart

 Sam Hurwitz Were Gonna Get Wet VideoWatch Sam sing his original live!

Unfortunately, Marc had a death in the family and could not continue teaching Sam.  He recommended Cliff Mays, a local guitar teacher and bandmate of Marc’s to take over while Marc was taking some time off. 

Sam continued learning guitar with Cliff and writing new songs.  Cliff has been a tremendous influence on Sam musically – whether it’s learning guitar, being exposed to new music and the history behind the bands, jamming, writing songs and learning a bit about recording software and the loop pedal.   When Sam was 8, he had his first public performance when Cliff invited Sam to participate in a songwriters circle that Cliff hosted monthly. 

Sam and Harrison Hurwitz

Sam with brother Harrison Hurwitz

In the summer of 2012, Sam and his older brother Harrison, who plays the drums and banjo, were a huge hit when they performed their original song Red Sky at a camp talent show.   That fall, they formed their band Amplifier on Fire and attended various open mics.  Sam continued to also perform as a solo act and at 9 years old was the youngest finalist at a talent search for young musicians.   That same year, after an open mic performance at 12 Grapes, a restaurant in Peekskill, NY, Sam was invited back to perform in a singer-songwriter showcase to celebrate the venue’s 5th anniversary. 

Sam Hurwitz working at home

When Sam was 10, he began studying piano at the Lagond Music School which was founded by Rosanne Lana and Charlie Lagond, who has performed around the world with artists like Chuck Mangione, The Jackson Five, the Temptations, and Kid Creole & the Coconuts.

Sam Hurwitz Piano Player

Sam’s parents explained that they were drawn to Lagond because of its unique approach of teaching contemporary music with the same rigor typically applied to classical training.   Sam hit it off immediately with his piano teacher Rusty Cloud, who has toured with, among others, the E Street Band and the Blues Brothers Band.   Quickly after seeing Lagond’s approach, Sam was enrolled there to study guitar with Nicky Barbato, and has recently begun voice training with Claire Cloud.  In addition to musical instruction, Sam participates in Lagond’s Band Prep Jam, a program for younger students to learn to work together as a group.  Lagond has been wonderful for Sam, not only improving his technique but exposing him to new genres of music and learning to play with others as part of an ensemble.  

Sam is described as being quiet, shy and reserved and not one to seek out or even like the limelight.  However, his mother shared that Sam seems to be more comfortable on stage recently than he has ever been. He is also described as being mature beyond his years, incredibly thoughtful, empathetic, modest and kind.  

In fact one of his teachers said that he is “the kindest student I have ever had” and he has been called an “old soul” by many people.  

Even Sam’s musical taste is mature – he is not interested in the current pop and rap songs most of his peers listen to and instead prefers Wilco, the Avett Brothers, Uncle Tupelo, Modest Mouse and old classics such as The Beatles, The Eagles, Billy Joel and Pink Floyd.

Maybe RomeSam performs original song “Maybe Rome”

Sam has a catalog of 10 original songs, 8 on guitar and 2 on piano.  At Sam’s first live performance he was asked how he writes his songs.  He answered “they just pop into my head”, and that continues to be the case today.  He will sit at the piano or pick up his guitar and just start playing and singing.  Many times nothing will come from it, but sometimes a song is created. 

Sam has been compared to Bob Dylan, Richie Havens and Steven Stills.  In addition to working on his music, Sam loves to spend time with his friends, play with Legos and the computer game Minecraft.  Sam also loves to read and write.  Sam attends a weekly creative writing class and wrote a screenplay at age 7 and has written several fantasy and science fiction short stories/novellas.

While this may be Sam’s introductory article here at Rivenmaster’s Place I’m sure it will not be the last we have heard from this young musical prodigy!  The key to success is writing, producing and performing your own originals songs.  That key element alone makes this young artist ahead of the game.  Be sure you subscribe to his YouTube Channel and follow him on Facebook.  You’re going to want to get in on the ground floor of this young man’s legacy because he is without a doubt headed for stardom.

Thre3CardsProfile2015

Cardinale Brothers “Thre3 Cards”

 

When we first introduced Santino, Gianni and Dante Cardinale they went by the name of C-Boyz Starz. Since their first introduction on this site the boys have perfected their act and have made numerous appearances back in Vegas and other notable venues.

Thre3Cards-Bros4LifeThese ‘Brothers for Life’ have loved music and have been signing together since early childhood. The boys told me that they changed the name of their group from C-Boyz Starz because they wanted a new, more mature name for their trio. “Thre3 Cards”. The THREE CARDinale brothers have individual aliases as well, Santino the “Joker,” Gianni the “King of Hearts,” and Dante the “Ace of Diamonds”. 

The Thre3 Cards have dedicated their lives to music, and singing in front of a live audience is their specialty. They come alive on stage and the audiences of all ages seem to follow suit. They have the most amazing and loyal fans that call themselves the CARDiacs! Whether they are singing an original song like, “When Its Real,” or singing one of their covers like, “All of Me,” by John Legend or an a Capella version of “Yesterday” by the world famous Beatles, their three-part harmonies and solo vocals excite audiences of every age. 

All of their performances and appearances are listed on their website. Some of the regular performances are the San Gennaro Feast, First Friday in Downtown Las Vegas, and at the Italian American Club. Recently they have performed at the Sam’s Town Casino and sang along with the LIVE band for the first time. Their website also has an amazing web store for 3C merchandise and song downloads. It is a must see!

thre3Cards-Streetside

As part of the Thre3 Cards compassion for others, they joined with the organization, “Tunes for Tots”, where kids throughout the world donate their talent by performing to raise money for various charities.   Santino, Gianni and Dante feel very blessed in their lives and love the idea that they can give back in some small way with their talent. The message the boys would like to impact to their peers and all listeners is to always follow your dreams no matter how big or small. They believe with hard work and dedication, dreams can come true. NEVER GIVE UP.

thre3 Cards Live

 Thre3 Cards Perform Live at Sam’s Town

They also have an upcoming audition for Americas Got Talent so wish them luck!

The boys have many social media sites and also can be found on Vine, Spotify and Shots. The others are listed below where you can subscribe, follow, and support them in their musical adventure.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Every year I like to take this time to thank everyone for their faithfulness and support not only to this website but to the young artists who are represented here.  Like last year many new artists were introduced here for the first time which now brings this site close to 150 young artists who have been featured here at one time or another since September 2009. While many continue to come back year after year some have moved on to even bigger and better things and have already outgrown this website. Some have been signed to producers and new management and working on new CD projects in amazing recording studios with professional backing and support. For those who have moved on to the next step in their musical career we salute you and offer our greatest wish for good success in the coming year.

For those who continue on as an Indi Artist or are still progressing and polishing your talent, we praise you for your effort and sacrifice and offer you our continued support and encouragement.

That being said, we thought it might be fun to bring you just a few interesting things about the site that we only share at this time of the year.

RIVENMASTER’S MOST POPULAR PUBLICATIONS 2014

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. Rivenmaster’s Place had over 70,000 visitors in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it. The busiest day of the year was January 17th with 671 views. The most popular post that day was Alec in WILDerland – Trust Your Wild SideThis year readers came from 174 different countries with the most visitors comign from The United States, with Germany & U.K. not far behind. 

Here are the Top 5 Most Popular Posts last year. (This may surprise you because some were published in previous years but are still holding much interest)

While every article and new young artist that is introduced here has merit I think we need to pay our respect to these young artists who have captured the largest number of fan visits, reads, and shares in 2014.

Alec J Fischer continues to be one of the brightest and best young videographers and youngest film/TV show producers I have ever met.  His latest “Alec in WILDerland” full feature YouTube segments were both enlightening and educational and I can’t tell you how much I have learned from watching his shows.  I salute you Alec for not only taking the First Place Award, but for your endurance, strength, creativity, stamina, and courage to do something nobody your age has ever done before.  You are a true artist and champion!

Uriah Shelton

Uriah Shelton while never actually having his own personal feature article here was featured in a film review I did for his roll as Henry Matthews in the Feature Film entitled “Lifted”.  While this film actually dates his career back to 2010 when he was but 13 years of age his singing and personality was captured in such a way with this movie that fans will just not let it go! 

Uriah continues to prove his singing ability and has release a few music videos on YouTube and has been very active with his Television acting career.  He did 26 episodes  as “Jeff Cargill” in A&E’s “The Glades“, in addition to other television performances.

Carson Lueders

Carson Lueders

Carson Lueders had only just begun his musical career when he first appeared here on Rivenmaster’s Place.  Since that time he has grown exponentially both physically and as a music pop idol.  This site is accustomed to having young aspiring actors and singers move on to bigger things, but Carson Lueders exploded onto the scene and now has Millions of fans from all over the world!  You could say he is one of, if not the hottest young YouTube artists to break out this past year. Carson has been walking red carpets, making appearances in Teen Magazines, and hanging with some of the most popular young singers currently in the business. 

In fact. this past year I have not even been able to pin him or his new management down for an article.  Regardless of that, over the past two years, Carson has brought more views and readers to this site than any other single young artist featured here.  CONGRATULATIONS CARSON!

Here are Carson’s Last Two Music Video Offerings:

Abraham Mateo

Abraham Mateo

Abraham Mateo first appeared here on Rivenmaster’s Place nearly 3 years ago but still continues to pull in a great following of readers and fans. Abraham now 16 years old is the hottest young artist on Sony Music Spain.  Abraham still holds the record for the number of visits for a debut article here which exceeded 900 views in one day. We have not enjoyed that kind of traffic since, although Daves Highway came in a close second with over 600.  Abraham’s looks and vocal talent has elevated him to a level of world stardom that is not enjoyed by everyone.  He is truly a special young man with an extraordinary talent, and you can be sure he will be around for years to come!

Abraham just released his new album titled “Who I Am” this past November. While I personally wish Abraham would create an album with more songs in English apparently Sony Spain is happy with the way things are.  Regardless, I especially enjoy the Spanish flare in his music which adds that special touch that no other form or genre of music can.  Congrats and Happy New Year Abraham!

Here are Abrahams latest Music Video for his song :

Congratulations Sebastian for all your recent success and for expanding your fan base this past year!  Best of Success in 2015.

Since the closing of The SkyKid Radio I have missed hearing many of the early songs from some of these now advanced, well known, and accomplished young artists.

Below is just short selection of some of these songs.

If you are one of these artists and have a song you would like to see added to this list just contact me and submit it for the play list. I will be happy to include it.

BEST OF SUCCESS TO ALL OUR YOUNG ARTISTS!

Tae Brooks Debut EP
'On My Own'

Tae Brooks On My Own EP

On September 9, 2014 the debut EP On My Own by teen artist Tae Brooks was released on iTunes for pre-order leading up to the official release date of September 30, 2014. During pre-order this EP of 5 original songs will be available for $3.99 and will include instant downloads of the previously released single, It’s Always Been You, and the highly anticipated pop power ballad, Lois Lane.

Besides the two songs included in the pre-order instant downloads, this EP also presents the smooth groove of Gotta Be, the gritty call-to-action of The Fire featuring Juke on the rap, and the evocative lament of On Your Own. In addition a bonus digital booklet will accompany the EP including exclusive photos, lyrics, liner notes, and personal thoughts. In his reflections Tae speaks of the challenges of being an independent artist as well as the opportunities that have opened to him through his artistry.

Aj Silva Musical Prodigy!

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.

Sam V

Sam V Coming Soon Ad 2015

Sam Verlinden "Sam V" from New Zealand was one of the first and the most written about young artists on this website! Sam began with his first actual introductory article on September 30th, 2009 just before this 12th birthday and is the only one of two artists to ever have an entire month of updates dedicated only to him. Rivenmaster has had the unique privilege of watching Sam's career develop and grow into what it has become today and we have been honored to support Sam the entire time. But more than just a supporter, we are even more honored to be called his friend.

Sam has not enjoyed a lot of updates over the past couple of years and for that reason I felt it was imperative that we bring you a full update for this now 17 year old amazing vocal artist who also is instrumental in writing his songs as well as being showcased on film and on stage at large venues in Auckland.

Be watching on the 20th of this month for Sam V's update where you will learn just how much he has accomplished and also be watching for his new original release which will be showcased here!

In the meantime catch Sam on his Facebook Page, YouTube, or Follow him on Twitter.

You can also find him on SoundCloud:

HELP NEEDED!

SPECIAL APPEAL FOR HELP!

Sheridan Archbold GO FUND ME

Rivenmaster's Place has long been a site for supporting all the efforts of young artists. You will often see ads in the sidebars about their new EP's or CD's as well as Special Recognition Awards given for their achievements and contributions to society by their own actions of selflessness. Occasionally there is a need that kind grabs our attention as one to really get behind and support, however it takes more than a website like this to make it happen. It takes all of you who come here to enjoy the music these young prodigies produce and record. That's why we are asking you to personally support Sheridan on his GO FUND ME PAGE. Sheridan really needs to raise enough money to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Often there is a misunderstanding about these young artists. Many people assume they all come from wealth or Hollywood prosperity... This is not always the case!!! Many of these kids struggle just like you and I with daily life needs while all the time sacrificing even more to obtain their goals which often seem to be just beyond their reach.

Such is this opportunity for Sheridan. Neither he nor his family have asked me to create this write up or make this SPECIAL APPEAL but I know that it would mean the world to him if you would just CLICK ON THIS LINK and DONATE WHAT YOU CAN! It can be as small as $5.00 or as much as $500 or $1,000. Please understand that there is no donation too small or too large to help Sheridan go to Italy to take part in this wonderful adventure of music and learning.

PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION TODAY!

VIDEO OF THE WEEK



Jordan Bijan Listen to your heart

Jordan Bijan while the youngest to ever be featured here on Rivenmaster's Place has well earned this honor! Little Jordan with the help of his dad creates these videos where he arranges and plays all the instruments to produce his cover songs. I don't know many 6 year olds who can play this many instruments with this much skill. Although he is still growing what I like about Jordan and his Dad's creations is that they do not try to cover up any little imperfections. It's all on display and you can see that Jordan is really talented. No auto-tuning, no dubbing over mistakes just a skillful presentation of the different takes of the song.

Note Jordan is even harmonizing with himself.... Now this is something special and I know of only one other little artist that has ever accomplished this with great success. I'm proud of you Jordan and you deserve this VIDEO OF THE WEEK AWARD!

Last Week's Winner!

Jai Waetford Shy

With over 54 Thousand Views in less than one day Jai Waetford's new music video for "Shy" his hit title song on his new EP is skyrocketing to success.

This is going to be a must buy album from Jai who has had it up on iTunes as a preorder for several weeks now.

Jai gained his fame from X-factor Australia back in 2013 with his outstanding audition of his original song "Don't Let Me Go" which brought the judges to tears. Unlike some who appear as contestants on the reality contest shows, Jai is going to be one with a lot of longevity.

I wrote an article a couple of years back about the ones that got away from this site by either receiving instant stardom or beginning their musical career before this website was born. Jai is one of those young artists who we knew little about until his now famous audition. Regardless Rivenmaster's Place wanted to pay honor to Jai here for his hard work and great production team support for what they have accomplished since his X-Factor experience!

Congrats Jai on your new song and on what is going to be an awesome EP release!
