Christmas at Rivenmaster’s Place 2012

Christmas 2012

This is our fourth Christmas here at Rivenmaster’s Place, and with each passing year we are blessed with an even greater abundance of new talented youngsters from all over the world.  This year has been no exception and without question has been our biggest and most successful year yet!  I want to thank each and every artist, their families, managers and promoters for their contributions to this site. Without them, Rivenmaster’s Place would not exist.  We also would like to take this time to wish each and every one a Merry Christmas.  Of course to you our readers and subscribers we wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and thank you for your continued support and gifts to this site which keep us going year after year!

Last year we brought you on a journey of Christmas’s Past, Present and Future.  This Christmas we are pleased to present you with some extraordinary Christmas videos from some of our talented featured artists.  To conserve space , we have linked each ‘Song Title’  and ‘artists photo’ to their New Christmas Video.  After viewing each video, please be sure to visit their websites and subscribe to their social media sites.

Dylan Cragle Meets Raining Faith – Two new original songs released!

This is the fourth time that Dylan Cragle has been featured on this site, and for good reason!  Dylan is extremely and uniquely talented, in as much as he has been writing and producing his own music ever since I first met him through his YouTube Channel.

His most recent two originals Nova Scotia (What About Me)“, and Dance Me, were written, composed and played by Raining Faith.  Raining Faith is a Nashville Tennessee based band, the same band that Dylan worked with on his first original song He Taught Me that debuted on his very first introductory article right here on Rivenmaster’s Place!

You can learn more about Raining Faith by visiting the YouTube Channel called Captain Rock.  Even before this website was birthed, I heard wonderful things about Randy Pinkelton, better known as (Captain Rock), and how supportive he and the band have been to the young artists they have come in contact with!  I salute them for their creative work and their efforts to inspire young budding artists like Dylan!

NASHVILLE EXPERIENCE

Dylan recently returned from a trip to Nashville where he worked with Raining Faith in their recording studio, Ruby Mai Studios.  Nova Scotia (What About Me), an emotional ballad was first written for Raining Faith.  However, as they started working on the song the band members all agreed that they thought Dylan’s vocal would sound amazing for this song and set out to contact him regarding him singing lead on this song.  I think that once you have heard this song you will agree with them.

Dylan is an amazing vocalist.  This song, like his others, really demonstrates Dylan’s ability to tell a story through his vocals, which are both convincing and moving.  Each Dylan Cragle original has a message or story interwoven into the tapestry of the song, which Dylan eloquently reveals through his heartfelt emotional performances.
