Sheridan Archbold Truly Talented Twelve Year Old Musical Marvel

“I believe God made me for a purpose, and when I sing, I feel that it’s something that I am meant to do.”

SHERIDAN ARCHBOLD Profile Full

 

Discovery of new young talent is always the objective of this site, but rarely are we so fortunate to find a talent like twelve year old Sheridan Archbold. While nearly every genre and style of music has been showcased here, one genre has been sorely neglected. Of course I’m speaking of Classical music and Opera. Not because we don’t recognize the importance and beauty of this style of music, but because finding a youngster who can do it justice is not a simple task.

Sheridan is billed as “The World’s Youngest Soprano Crossover Operatic Singer.”

While I’m not certain he’s the youngest, he certainly is one of if not the most talented I have ever heard. The clarity of his vocals, his perfect pitch and tone, and his use of vocal techniques beyond his years has earned him the right to be respected as a true professional performer.

In fact Sheridan has a most impressive resume for a young man his age!

I think what caught my eye watching him for the first time was his short comedic openings that he has for every music video he creates.  It’s in these short openers that you can catch a glimpse of this young man’s personality and the tool he uses to connect with his viewing audience.

You can also see his Live Standing Ovation Performance of this song where he was named the Grand Award Winner for the 2013 Mid-South Junior Youth Talent Contest.

After recently making contact with Sheridan’s parents through Facebook I found to my delight that Sheridan was willing to share his story with me for today’s publication. I asked him a variety of questions which he answered by providing the following………………….

Story of my life

“I was born in Chicago. When I was 3 days old, I got very sick. Miraculously I recovered, and my parents were very happy and at that moment they understood, that God had prepared me for something very special.”

“We have lived in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and Australia. We now live in Yorkville, a small town in Illinois.

Musical Duo “Blackberry Jam” Launching CD and Begin Acting Career

Blackberry Jam Profile Photo

Our last update for Adrian Chirtea and Julian Woodrow or better known as “Blackberry Jam” found them enjoying songwriting and recording sessions with teen vocal artist Thilo Berndt from Germany, after attending last year’s Prodigy Camp in Washington State.   The two boys, who are identical twins, have now expanded their careers venturing into acting as well as continuing their song writing and vocal recordings.

“Blackberry Jam” is more than just two creative young men with an incredible ability to entertain and make you laugh. These guys have continued to hone their skills leaving me without doubt that their first album, which is currently getting ready to be released, will be more than a huge success!

How it Began

Blackberry Jam 2014

Blackberry Jam

 

The boys who have been singing since they were in the third grade kicked off their professional career at 14 years of age after begging their Mom to take them to audition on the X-Factor. That successful audition led them all the way to the boot-camp portion of the show before being eliminated.

“It was a fantastic experience where they met scores of budding artists which really cemented their resolve to become musicians;” their mother Heather exclaimed.

Over the following two years the boys published YouTube videos every two weeks, earning them over 2.3 million hits and 14,000 subscribers. This motivated them to develop their instrumental skills in ukulele and guitar. Last year both boys were awarded scholarships to attend Prodigy Camp under the direction of Rick Stevenson which set them on course to become amazing young songwriters. In fact, this month they will return to Prodigy Camp with yet another scholarship and an album full of original songs.

“There’s a feeling that we get from music like no other. When we step on a stage, sing a song, or play our instruments we get a jolt of adrenaline and everything starts to feel right. We love our fans and our bandmates.. playing music, whether to help others in need, or please ourselves is the greatest feeling on earth. We are so grateful that we have the gift of music in our lives!”

Thirteen year old twins Milo and Julian, aka the Sposato Brothers, have been on a very interesting journey lately. Integrating their music careers with community service has always been at the top of their list. Their performances for the ‘Walk to Defeat ALS’, ‘Kirpatrick House for Youth Offenders’, ‘Thanksgiving,For the Homeless’, ‘Boys and Girls Club of America’, and countless school and church benefits have helped them realize the connection between the music they create and the world they live in. Their ability to reach people through music and bring joy, hope and happiness to others who are in need has been a focal point of their lives and music career. Nothing however, could have prepared them for what happened last November!

THE HUGE ADVENTURE:

“My dad came to us one day, and told us he had set up a tour.. and was taking us out of school… for TWO MONTHS!”, said Milo. “We had already done a small tour in Europe that summer, so we were kind of surprised”, said Julian. “Plus, leaving school for two months? WOW!” But when they discovered where they were going and what they were about to do, they really hit the floor. “He told us we were going to Nepal and India, and we were going to work with orphanages and schools, teaching, donating money, donating instruments and putting on benefit concerts to raise funds for school supplies and clothing. We were stunned!”, relates Julian.

“It was like going back in time,” Milo said. “They used wooden plows. And they had this caste system where no one is equal. They were really poor, but everybody accepted us into their family.”

“The Capp Kids” Extraordinarily Creative and Talented Entertainers

CappKids_Natasha_Steven_Raffaela Profile

CappKids Natasha, Steven & Raffaela

 One of the most enjoyable parts of running this website is the opportunity to introduce talented sibling groups. Today we are honored to bring to you three truly talented siblings, each with their own unique set of talents.

Their mother Maria shared with me that “The Capp Kids” have been surrounded by music and performance their entire lives.” Their mother is an acting coach and their father writes television and radio commercials for advertising. Their grandmother was a staple in the long island community and regional theatre for over 30 years. Additionally, their aunts and cousins also still currently act and perform in the theatre community back east. For the last 5 years all three of the Capp kids have taken their craft to a professional level auditioning and working in both New York and Los Angeles.

Steven Capp

Steven Capp

The youngest of the siblings, Steven Thomas’ is now a 6th grade middle school student.

Steven was literally born into acting and the world of performing arts. He was a mere 8 months old sitting, listening and watching while his two sisters, Raffaela and Natasha were on stage performing as Royal Princesses in The King & I and his mom Maria who owns an acting studio (Maria Capp Acting Studio), was choreographer of this huge musical production. Steven tagged along to all rehearsals and acting classes of not only the King & I but also to a number of other shows that his sisters and mom were involved with. Steven was able to attend acting classes that his mom taught until his first theatrical debut in the musical “Footloose”, followed by his first television show, “Haunting Evidence” at the age of only 5.

Early on Steven expressed interest in improvisation, comedy and theatre and went on to perform on stage and on camera in local commercials and theatrical productions while living on Long Island NY. When he lived in NYC, his efforts were focused mainly on film. Steven was fortunate to land lead and supporting roles in many NYU and Columbia Graduate films. He auditioned for one director of the MFA program of each school and was then referred to many of the other graduate classmates. This gave him the confidence and ease of working with adults, in front of the camera, and technical crews. Consistently Steven received praise and validation for his wit and mature demeanor while on set. Excited with the opportunities and adventure that lie ahead and nervous about everything being new, Steven’s feelings about the family move to Los Angeles was with trepidation as he was leaving behind the only home he knew on Sayville, LI and in Manhattan and all his friends and family!

Kira Taylor Couragious, Charming, Country Artist

My songs are inspired through my life experiences! It’s my desire for my music to inspire others to always reach for their dreams in spite of adversity!           Kira Taylor

Kira Taylor Profile

Kira Taylor

Today’s multi talented 14 year old singing/songwriter, actress and spokesperson, Kira Taylor comes to us with not only exceptional talent but with a story of overcoming strength, courage, passion and perseverance. I was first introduced to Kira’s talent through hearing her cover of “Ready Set Don’t Go” by Billy Ray and Miley Cirus on her Reverb Nation Site. I was not only captivated with her cover but immediately convinced that she was a young lady that I needed to learn more about.

What I found after a few letter exchanges with her parents was not only an amazing young lady with an exceptional recording voice, but also a person with compassion, courage, strength and endurance….. a true overcomer in every sense of the word.

In fact, her story was so inspiring I wanted to publish it exactly as I received it. I know that you too will be inspired by the positive effect her life has been and continues to be on others as well as enjoy the musical talent she so exuberantly exhibits.

 

KIRA’S STORY

“Our daughter, Kira Taylor, was born on December 6, 1999. She was a tiny little bundle of joy that smiled and giggled every time we spoke to her or walked by her. She has always tried to be in the spotlight but there were definitely some hiccups along the way. When she was 8 months old she had to have a shunt placed because her brain started swelling due to pressure from fluid building up.

And you can’t help but be excited about what he’ll release next after hearing his first three songs, which all could easily hold their own against some of the best songs written this year.

Dalton says,

“It’s been a while since I worked with Bobby and I’ve grown so much as a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist since then. We had magic when we worked together before, I can only imagine what it will be like now. Bobby is a really talented guy and he’s only gotten better too.”

Gaitway Brothers cover “He Aint Heavy” Official Video

 

Gaitway Brothers

Gaitway Brothers

Gaitway Brothers continue to put out entertaining videos and their latest is no exception to the rule. Their last major production won an award making them truly an award wining duo!

The boys have been working on their harmonies now for just a little over a year and this new cover proves that their work has paid off. For me it was a goose-bump performance especially when the high notes are reached with such ease and ability.

"He Ain't Heavy" was originally written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell and originally recorded by Kelly Gordon in 1969. The song became a worldwide hit for The Hollies and again for Neil Diamond in 1970. My personal favorite was recorded by the Osmond Brothers who made this a winning single in 1970.

The Gaitway Brothers are a natural. I have no doubt that as they continue to grow and develop their musical skills that we will be seeing more and more incredible performances and videos from them!

Congrats boys on a great project! I wish you the very BEST OF SUCCESS.
