Gaitway Brothers – an inspiring true story

January 10, 2016 Featured, Gaitway Brothers, Peter Gait, Steven Gait, Young Male Artists Comments Off on Gaitway Brothers – an inspiring true story

Gaitway-Brothers-before-and-afterLife is full of tragic and touching stories. Peter and Steven Gait – the Scottish twin singers better known as the Gaitway Brothers – have just turned 15-years-old. At this time of year, we often find ourselves looking back with amazement at how much we have achieved and with nostalgia at how much has changed.

It has been my privilege to work with the boys since they were 10-years-old and to share, not only in their musical journey, but also in that dangerous adventure that every adolescent boy must take: their journey to manhood.  

Gaitway-Brothers

Though every boy must rise to this challenge, it cannot be overstated how difficult if can be. The Gaitway Brothers are no stranger to tragedy and perhaps this gives some of their music it’s unique pathos which fans often describe. I asked Steven and Peter to share personally a little about themselves:

Steven

Gaitway-Brothers-StevenI was born in Scotland and I live Helensburgh. A lot of our songs are old traditional music and it’s written by Matthew or people we work with. 

A big struggle for me was my Dad passed away when I was 9. My Papa and Nana give me the strength to persevere because they are really supportive of me. 


My advice to other young people trying to succeed in music is try hard, don’t give up don’t listen to all the people that make fun of you or say you can’t do it. 

Please keep supporting us b sharing our videos and tell people to ‘like’ us, follow us etc. Thank you so much for all you do. I want to give special thanks to Matthew Todd, Phil Todd, Nathan my Papa, Mum and Nana”

Gaitway-Brothers-With-You-2

Peter

Gaitway-Brothers-Peter-ninja

I was born in the Vale of Leven in Alexandria which is in in Scotland and I live in Helensburgh. My biggest musical inspiration is Matthew Todd, our manager and our friend.

We sing lots of traditional Scottish music and have other songs about God. Some of the songs we have sung are written by Matthew Todd and we do covers of other songs like ‘Human’ by the Killers.

Our Dad passed away when we were 9. It was hard and was a dark time for me. My Nana and Papa help me carry on because they encourage me and are very supportive, and my Mum as well.

My ambition is to learn Japanese and to achieve higher in all the subjects I choose at school and advance higher in some too.  I want to go to university and go to Japan and go to the Pokémon store and theme park.

My advice to other young people would be to try as hard as possible, believe in yourself and stick to it and practice.

Please keep on watching our music videos on youtube and subscribe to us and go to our website www.gaitwaybrothers.com

A special thank you to Matthew Todd, Phillip Todd, Nathan Todd, Mum, Nana, Papa and all our fans and the people who have helped in our music videos.

Keep following us :)”

International Christmas Child – flashback!

December 17, 2015 Cameron Molloy, Esteban y Diego, Gaitway Brothers, Griffin Tucker, JoJo Rock, Special Posts Comments Off on International Christmas Child – flashback!

ORDER NOW!It is Christmas 2015, that means it is one year since the International Christmas Child album project began, and what a year it has been!

I had a flood of nostalgia and emotions as I listened to the album once again. I also felt a real sense of pride and joy that every single one of the artists on the album are growing into exceptional young men and women, many of which I have had the pleasure to follow personally and some of which have featured on this site in the past year.

The album is still very much for sale and, since all the sales streams are already set up, there is a real opportunity for us to make a good amount of funds for the charity Operation Christmas Child and make a difference in the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. We are focussing on electronic sales this year so as to avoid the mailing issues we had trying to send packages internationally last year. The album is available electronically everywhere with the most popular platforms being:

The Artists

Below is a summary of each of the artists at their age and stage at the time of the album release last year. I have added a +1 to each of their ages to serve as a simple reminder that they are now all a year older. Follow the links from their videos and be amazed at how much they have achieved in one year! 

I was hoping to have official updates from some of the artists but this is a very busy period for them and most have not had a chance yet. So, rather than rush it, look out for special update articles in the coming weeks and months and get ready to see how much one of these young artists can achieve in just one year!

JoJo Rocks

JoJo Rocks

JoJo Rocks, 11+1, Australia, “Amazing Grace”

Australia’s JoJo is one inspirational little guy! He started rapping to sponsor a child through the charity Compassion when he was just 7 years old. Now he dedicates much of his time to encouraging others to make a difference.

It must be acknowledged that JoJo was one of the major inspirations for the album.

Gaitway Brothers, 13+1, Scotland, “Like a Candle Flame”

Twin singers, Peter and Steven Gait, live in Helensburgh, Scotland. The boys delight their loyal following from all over the world with a unique variety of songs ranging from pop to Scottish folk music. The boys were first introduced on Rivenmaster in 2013 and returned with an article about their roles in a short feature film entitled “The Fable of Forsaken”.

Their acting and singing talent is best demonstrated in this:

Griffin Tucker is a mufti-instrumentalist, passionate performer and undisputed rock star! He specializes in classic rock and has an army of fans from around the world who are united in awe of his talent.

Griffin is also an inspirational young man with a genuine respect for his fans and it’s an honor to have him represented on the album. Here is his latest hit single simply entitled “Girlfriend”

Clement Bousquet

Clement Bousquet

Clément Bousquet, 13+1, France, “Etoile de Noël”

Clément who just turned thirteen-years-old, already has a loyal following for his music. His father, Pascal, produces his music and wrote the beautiful lyrics for “Etoile de Noël” (Star of Christmas). We feel very privileged to have such a wonderfully appropriate song written especially for this album.

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!

Theo Constantin: passionate Romanian performer

“My music is created to reach the soul of those who hear it”      Theo Constantin

 

professional photo4

Romania and its remarkable people have a special place in my heart. Torchlight Talent is privileged to feature young artists from all over the world, but we are especially delighted to introduce to you today the rising Romanian star, Theodor Constantin. 

Theo was born in Bucharest, the Romanian capital, in 2005 where he still lives with his family. His musical journey began in the choir of the Ecumenical Institute of Sacred Music in Bucharest where he quickly became a soloist and started to study piano at the age of five. As a soloist of the choir, Theo realised that solo singing gave him the opportunity he craved for self-expression and communication with his audiences. So, at just 7 years old he started studying pop music at the Academy of Fine Arts and today he is a student at the Art School of Bucharest where he studies solo singing and performing.

I asked Theo to tell me a little about his greatest musical influences:

professional photo8“When Michael Jackson died, in 2009, I was almost 5 years old. In Romania, it was on all the radio stations and all the TV channels. His music was everywhere. This event was a significant moment in my life, I asked my parents for Michael’s music. I have studied him – from the man to the artist – and it was from watching him that I learned my first lessons in solo singing.

The idea that I could express what I was singing best through solo performance was already deep inside me. Michael Jackson confirmed that for me. Through his music, I learned English – actually, I learned to speak English, without understanding what I was saying – by learning his famous songs. Then I listened to rock music, rock ballads. They had something special. They had a particular feeling.”

 

professional photo2Theo has his own music producer and together they try to create music and videos to express the messages that Theo wants to communicate. His repertoire consists of both covers and his own original songs. One of the wonderful things about Theo’s music and videos is that they are unapologetically from his own perspective and expressing the joys and struggles which he experiences as a 10-year-old boy. He performs with such confidence and energy, you might expect Theo to be very outgoing and extraverted, but in truth he is a quiet and thoughtful boy for which music is his preferred method of communication.  

“Each track has its own history. It is inspired by real life. I am quite shy and usually don’t talk too much and that is why I think my music speaks for me. For example, my latest single, ‘I’ll be your hero’ has an underlying social message that I want to send to all those who can stretch out a hand to help the children who, unfortunately, do not have a family, a house or a toy. They would love it to happen. That’s why they need a hero in their life, a normal person who is willing to stretch out that saving hand toward them. My music is positive, though certain parts awaken feelings of sadness. It always expresses truth and all the tracks have a happy ending.”
