Anthony Gargiula Productive Past Producing Promising Future!

Anthony G LogoAnthony G 2015Only a handful of young artists share the same longevity on this site as New York Teen pop artist Anthony Gargiula. Anthony was the first to be interviewed on this site for The Skykid Radio program and enjoyed his first feature back in July of 2010 entitled Anthony Gargiula 11 year old showstopper.

Now more than 5 years later Anthony has grown into an amazing performer and recording artist with a resume that includes performances with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. In fact if you have been following this site you already know that Anthony appeared on Ellen numerous times, his first appearance when he was just 7 years old.

Anthony has also been showcased on other major network programs like NBC’s Today Show and CBS Early Show. He has opened shows for The Jonas Brothers, Lady Antebellum, Jordan Pruitt, The Outlaws, The Temptations, Four Tops, Kellie Pickler just to name a few!

Anthony is also known for his truly amazing performances of the National Anthem for major sporting events and Professional Sports. In fact, five of these performances were held at Madison Square Garden for the New York Knicks. In addition he has opened games for The Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Twins, LA Dogers and others…

Knowing how that song was inspired helps in our understanding to why Anthony started the nonprofit organization called “Bowling Against Bullying”. Anthony has performed for numerous events for this organization with over $10,000 in proceeds raised going towards the anti-bullying projects of local school districts and anti-bullying charities. This alone says much about his character and desire for his music to make a difference in the world.

Naturally Anthony’s voice has matured and strengthened since that first CD project, but even back then Anthony had that special quality to his voice that could not be denied!




In January of this year Anthony signed on with Cheiron Records where he has been creating new music for what I’m sure will eventually become a full CD. Making countless trips to Florida where Cheiron is based, Anthony has been recording new music, attending dance rehearsals, having photo shoots, shooting videos, and more. This upcoming year is promised to be the most exciting and productive yet for Gargiula!Anthony G CD Cover

Anthony Gargiula Releases Single,  “So I Don’t Drown”

Released just two weeks ago, the third single Anthony has put out with Cheiron Records, “So I Don’t Drown”  hit Number One in New Artist category on the iTunes chart it’s first week running. This makes a loud statement of just where Anthony’s recording career is heading. I also highly recommend that after purchasing his new hit single you will also want to add DNA and Barricade. his previous two releases to your AG collection.


I asked Anthony to describe his new song and give us a little behind the scenes remarks regarding the making of his latest single. “So I Don’t Drown”  

“So I Don’t Drown” is one of my favorite songs that I have ever recorded. I recorded it with an amazing producer named Tim Coons. He has had so much success in this business with people like the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears. It was an honor to have worked with him.  

My brother, Louis was a big part of the song also, he wrote most of it with a little help from me here and there on some of the melodies and verses. Louis, Tim, and I had so much fun producing this song and making music in the studio. 

The lyrics of the song are really neat! The song has the word “drown” in the title, and throughout the song there are a ton of references to waves, water, and tides. This is such a fun song to dance to and I hope everyone enjoys it! ”      -Anthony




Nobody can predict the future; however there is no doubt that Anthony Gargiula will continue to be extremely successful as he makes his way to the top of the entertainment industry.

Lyric Dubee Young and Restless and enjoying Success!

Lyric-logo-Lyric Coming SoonOne of the greatest advantages of being the founder of Rivenmaster’s Place is that I have been privileged to watch so many young artists begin their careers. A number of them had not yet produced their first music video or even had a photo shoot prior to my first contact with their parent or manager.

A few on the other hand were well on their way to success even at the tender age of just 12. Such is the case of Canadian Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Lyric Dubee. In fact, he was working on his second album at the time, on an unfinished song called Perfection!  

We are proud to have that EXCLUSIVE VIDEO which was posted on that introductory article!

While I was provided the opportunity to meet with Lyric in person in Hollywood CA this past summer, I was also privileged to attend his latest CD release party which was held on September 19th in his home town of Barrie, Canada. Although it meant driving more than 6 hours, it proved to be more than a worthwhile trip.






In case you haven’t been following Lyric or his music, Lyric just released 2 full length CDs. His 3rd album had a planned release for 2014 but was put on hold after the 1st single “Black Ice” (Watch Music Video) dropped and caught the attention of Legendary Rock & Roll Photographer Robert M Knight of Nevada.

Robert signed Lyric in September of 2014 and put Lyric in the studio with Grammy Award Winning Producer “Warren Huart” (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt).

Black Ice was of course one of the songs that I could not wait to hear live at Lyric’s concert and I have to tell you, “The song sounded even better live than it did on the studio recording.”

For those who may not know, Lyric did all the instrumentation on his studio recordings which even further proves just what an amazing musician he is!

Lyric Live at CD Release Party 9/19/15

The entire evening of music and socializing with Lyric’s fans was a great experience! Anticipation continued to grow as the sold out crowd waiting for Lyric and his new band members to take the stage. Something that I noticed right away was the diversity of the crowd that gathered. Lyric has fans from all age groups and backgrounds. Both young school age kids, teens his own age, Mom’s and Dad’s with small children and the older set as well, all made their way into the concert hall. Lyric’s merchandise table, displaying his CD’s, T-shirts, Photos and miscellaneous items was being met with a flurry of young people trying to get their share of the fan merchandise

Even though Lyric’s new band members had only been together less than a month for practice these guys sounded like a band that had been together for years. They opened the concert with the band’s new Music Video for Lyric’s new hit single “Young and Restless” following it up with another Lyric original bringing the audience to their feet with cheers and applause!
