John Ververis Connecticut’s Extraordinary New Performing Vocalist

April 14, 2012 Featured, John Ververis, Young Male Artists D-L No Comments

John Jump1
I‘m told that a virtuoso was originally a highly accomplished musician, but by the nineteenth century the term had become restricted to performers, both vocal and instrumental, whose technical accomplishments were so pronounced as to dazzle the public.

John VerverisToday I’m delighted to introduce a brand new vocalist who has just begun to make his mark in the entertainment circles, but is already raising the eyebrows of people who recognize talent.

I first discovered John on his original YouTube channel where he was singing acappella a cover of “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz.  His first video was a little out of sync before it was corrected, but that is not what caught my attention.  I recognized something in this boys voice that I had heard before from those who have gone on to be bright young professional vocal artists.  What I heard was a wonderful tone quality and nearly perfect pitch performance.

It only took me a few days to make contact with Johns Dad via an e-mail which led to a wonderful return e-mail and a follow up phone call where we exchanged an engaging and interesting conversation.  I found out that John was just getting ready to begin his quest to become a professional recording artist.

I was delighted to find out that John was soon to go into the recording studio to create his debut video and even more excited when I realized that I would be introducing him to the world for the very first time!

John stairsThirteen Year old John McLean Ververis lives in Burlington, Connecticut where he attends Har-Bur Middle School. John comes from an extended musical family including his Mom, Colleen Ververis who performed with Metropolitan USO for ten years and his older sister, Amalia who is an accomplished guitarist and singer.

John’s Grandfather affectionately called “Poppy” loves music and would sing to his grandchildren all the time. He would rock them on his lap and hum a catchy tune “Deedle dee”  At nine months old John’s mom found John sitting up against a kitchen cabinet rocking and humming the tune his Poppy would always sing.  From that moment on it was evident that John had a love for music. He sang and hummed before he even spoke!

The family remembers a time at a party when John sang God Bless America at the top of his lungs at just two years old!  After that event John was the entertainment at all family functions.

At five years old John was the youngest performer at the Lake Garda Elementary Talent show singing Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway. American Idol and Clarkson were great influences on him when he was younger.  Also at age five John won Burlington Idol which made him into somewhat of a local celebrity.

John Rope Swing

When John was nine the United States Tennis Association chose him from his audition to sing America the Beautiful at the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament in New Haven Ct.

John was asked to sing at many community functions including the National Anthem at championship sporting events and Patriotic songs at Political meetings and inductions. He has performed at numerous talent shows and musicals.

One day hanging and swimming with friends, John broke out into song not knowing he was in the company of Dick Robinson, acclaimed radio host and icon who was blown away by John voice and good manner.  He asked John to perform for his “Great American Songbook” which paved the way for Dicks new adventure of seeking out new young talent to represent the songs from the great American songbook.…

John’s innate interest in music began at such an early age but he has been influenced by so many people and artists around him. His mom and sister continue to perform and his extended family includes many singers and musicians.  Other influences include Gavin DaGraw, Adele, Mac Miller, Cold Play, Michael Buble.

John Tree

Aside from singing John enjoys the piano, his Xbox and Tennis. He is also a talented visual artist and has had many pieces displayed in art shows.  John is an excellent student and has been asked to be part of “Odyssey of the Minds” academic competition for the last 5 years. In this years competition he wrote and sang two short songs incorporating his love for music into the challenge.  He loves to read and some of his favorite books include the Percy Jackson series and The Hunger Games.  His favorite holiday is fourth of July because he loves fireworks!

Being half Greek John has been exposed to many foods and culture. He has a sophisticated palate and enjoys baklava, pesto, lobster and sushi – not typical of a 13 year old! However he loves a good cheeseburger and fries now and then.

Aside from his supportive family John is lucky to have his community, teachers and close friends including Zach, Alex, Christian, Eli, Kevin, Keean, Lexi, Katelynne, Kyle, Nate, Sam and Erica stand behind him.

John wants to share his God given talents and hopes to be able to travel and meet interesting people during his musical journey and hopefully career. He wishes that his singing will inspire his listeners and encourage people to use whatever talents and abilities they have in a positive way and to be grateful for them!

bluedivider

I know that John will continue to dazzle us all with his future singing performances. There is no doubt that this boy will continue to climb the ladder of success in the music field and entertainment industry!  So buckle your seat belts and get ready for the climb, because John (Virtuoso) Ververis is on his way to the top and there’s no looking back!

Gaitway Brothers

Fable of Forsaken Ad
In a behind the scenes look at a brand new film Rivenmaster is proud to announce that we will be featuring once again The Gaitway Brothers who are working as actors in a film called "The Fable of Forsaken"

Steven and Peter Gait, better known as "Gaitway Brothers" first appeared here in November of 2013. Since that time they have been working with some amazingly talented film producers and writers of short films. The boys were awarded an award for their last feature video called "With You" / Còmhla Riut-sa which was simply amazing being both beautifully written and produced.

Now both Steven and Peter are part of another project put together by the "Todd Brothers" from Scotland. Philip Todd (professional actor and editor), Matthew Todd (professional musician and writer), and Nathan Todd (web designer) teaming up with their cousins John and Tom Walkinshaw, making this a true family project!

Rivenmaster is honored to announce that we will be bringing you a full behind the scene FEATURED STORY about the making of this short independent film on August 1st.

While release date for the film has not yet been announced, you can be sure that it will be in the very near future. I have no doubt in my mind that we are all in for one of the greatest treats we have experienced in a long time. The fresh creativity of the Tod Brothers Team is outstanding and when they put their heads together what develops is nothing short of epic!

Be watching Friday August 1st for this article......... Rivenmaster

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.

Rivenmaster.......
