Arden Reimer 092010It was Feb 21st that I first introduced Canadian born Arden Reimer here on Rivenmaster’s Place. It is with great delight that I can finally bring you up to date with some wonderful things that have been transpiring for this amazing young vocalist.

Not only has Arden continued to perfect his vocal abilities, but he has maintained nearly all his upper register with a sound so rich and pure it can only be described as angelic! All I can say to that is: “Hallelujah”

Recently graduating from Grade 7, Arden, sang the Olympic theme song” I Believe” with a friend from school.  In addition, he sang “Somewhere over the Rainbow” accompanied by his ukulele for a talent show at school. Arden, now 13, has begun a new school year in Grade 8 and has become increasingly enthusiastic about starting Drama.  He plans to join the Glee club at school and hopefully be awarded a lead role in this year’s musical.

Meanwhile back home in Vancouver, he was chosen to sing at the P.N.E., (Vancouver’s annual Exhibition).  Arden made it all the way to the semi-finals in the age 13-18 year old category singing “Whataya Want From Me” thrilling the crowd of listeners!

Arden was also honored to sing at his first wedding with over 300 people in attendance.  He masterfully sang accompanying himself on his ukulele and using backtracks.

The big news which I have been dying to share is, Arden appeared on National T.V. in a show called “The Next Star“.

Arden stated;this was truly an amazing experience”.

While there is much more that cannot be shared at this time, I will keep you up to date as more information is released!

So, “People Get Ready”!

Arden is currently working on writing his first song which has been an incredible learning experience! Not only is he learning how to write a song, but he is also developing his composing skills, piecing the entire number together from start to finish.  He told me, his compositions start when he hears a melody in his head, followed by writing lyrics to fit the melody. He hadn’t fully realized that he had this amazing ability, but once he started writing down the lyrics, it dawned on him that the melody was already there to go with the words.  He is very excited about this endeavor and hopes to share this new song with all of us in a month or so.

I’m extremely happy to see that Arden is now developing beyond cover songs.  The true mark of a musician is not just singing or playing well, but performing and branching out beyond the ordinary.  Arden is truly extraordinary, and this new found talent exemplifies that!

Arden plays his ukulele non-stop showing his creative talent by performing different cover songs changing them up to fit the ukulele.  His ukulele teacher has been assisting Arden by writing out the chords for the  songs that he is performing.

His mom exclaimed, “It really is amazing to hear a song from the past totally redone with the ukulele, live”.

We should soon be hearing his ukulele rendition of the song “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper.  While were waiting listen to Arden’s version of
“Don’t Call Me Baby” by Kreesha Turner!

This winter Arden will compete in talent shows and sing for a few local charity events. He also hopes to make it to a concert this fall to see one of his favorite musical influences, Hall and Oates.

Arden Reimer is destined for stardom! This is one young man that the moss will not be growing underfoot!  Arden’s determination for success coupled with his extreme talent will soon take him to places that only dreams are made of!

Good luck Arden, we wish you the very best in your climb and are backing you all the way!

  3. I just heard Ardens version of Hallelujah this morning on youtube, and it was amazing. So i decided to check Rivenmasters site to see if there was an update on this amazing singer, and there it was. Please keep the updates coming, as i am a huge fan and can’t wait for him to reach the stars one day.

  4. Wow, thanks so much for the comment. I really enjoyed doing the song and have a video coming out shortly, that was all shot at our home in Washington. So stay tuned

  5. Thanks Mike, You are always so kind to take the time to leave a comment. You are so right about Arden having a great voice! He is becoming an excellent ukulele player as well! Discovering who you are as a singer is a big part of what a star has to do. Arden has already found out a great deal about what he likes to sing and what fits him as a vocalist. When you find the type of music you excel in and what you feel the most passionate about you are well on your journey in becoming an artist. I’m very excited to hear his first original and will share it immediately with Skykid’s Radio program so all can hear. Perhaps I will even have a sample here. Keep your eyes and ears tuned!

  6. This is one blogger you can count on to help everyone keep track of Arden. This young man is going to have an amazing career in singing and I’m proud to shout his name from the mountain tops! As far a I’m concerned he is more than “The Next Big Star” He already is one!

  7. It was with great excitement that this article was written! Like I said; this is one young singer that is going places. Hallelujah is one of my favorite songs as well, but Arden’s rendition made me even more a fan. This recording demonstrates just how good his vocals really are! It’s more than amazing the control he demonstrates. His ending for this song is beautiful and the soft tone he adds to each note for me made this one of his best recordings ever!

  8. Thanks for your comment on Arden’s article. It’s always a pleasure to write about a young talent such a Arden. His vocals are more than amazing with almost perfect pitch. There are some who train their voice for years to equal what he already demonstrates at just 13. You can be sure that Arden will be a frequent feature here for some time to come!

  9. Arden has a brilliant career ahead of him. He has amazing talent and I really enjoyed the article about him. Love to see all these talented kids it really is a breath of fresh air.

  10. Thanks Lynnea. I checked out your songs on youtube and think you are a great singer also. Keep up the great work.

  11. Thanks so much. I really enjoy listening to skykid radio on Sundays and really enjoy the chat sessions with all the singers. You are doing a great job at getting many young singers recognized like myself. Keep up the great work also and hope to be listening on Sunday.

  12. I have been waiting for this update on Arden Reimer ( Greetings ). I really like his cover of Hallelujah . And think that being in a musical / especially if he gets a lead in one will be really beneficial to his carrier and development as singer and performer. ( I have noted that musical and choir experience always has a great impact on young singers ) . Thank you for the update Rod. Good luck Arden !

  13. Great article! It’s good to see people are recognizing Ardens talents and that he is continuing to strengthen them.
    I can’t wait to hear your song Arden!

  14. I’ve know for a while that Arden has a great voice and can play many different instruments and it’s exciting to know that now he’s also writing his own songs. He’s really developing into a great all-around entertainer, and that will give him a lot of options for what he can do in the future.
