Astounding Teen Talent Appearing Here Soon and AGT Recap

Dalton Cyr
Dalton Cyr Update Coming Soon

Although Rivenmaster’s Place has published less frequently this summer, it’s not because we have not stayed busy!  All of the outstanding young artist who are featured here have had an extremely busy summer.  Some who were to debut here and others who had updates scheduled, had to push out their features due to tours, concerts, and special engagements with America’s Got Talent, X-Factor, and other contractual events. 

This summer also has not been a blockbuster for young actors in film.  While I have yet to write a review for “After Earth” staring Jaden Smith and his father Will, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will most likely get around to that after it has been released on DVD.


Soon to be featured here for the first time will be Tae Brooks, The Brewer Boys, and Brendan Guy.  Updates for Blackberry Jam and Dalton Cyr are also in the schedule. Dalton and the Twins update will include exclusive details regarding their time at Prodigy Camp in Washington State this summer.  We also have invited back Griffin Tucker and recently made contact with the manger for Struck Boyz and The Robotix who made their national debut on AGT just a few weeks ago. 

In addition to all this we recently heard from 2Boys in Norway ,who has not been featured here for some time. The boys are launching a brand new original single called “Scandinavian Girls” which once again demonstrates the creative talents of Marcus and Sondre.  This is of course an update I’m really looking forward to publishing! 

That being said, we are planning to have some great Features & Updates for you throughout the next few months.


Blackberry Jam
Blackberry Jam Update Coming Soon

I thought I might bring you a few of my own thoughts regarding this season’s contest at America’s Got Talent.  Overall the show has been better this year and has featured more youngsters than in the past.  While I have been somewhat critical of America’s Got Talent over the years, much of that criticism surrounds the fact that children compete in the same competition with adults.  I have always felt that NBC needs an AGT Junior program that showcases only children and teens.  This would not only be entertaining, it would help the judging panel make decisions without having to deal with an age factor.  While it may not stop the tears that flow each year when a youngster does not advance in the competition, at least these talented kids would be loosing to peers their own age. Also judges comments like; your still young yet, not quite ready, only 15 (or some other youthful age) would be eliminated.

Blackberry Jam Heads for the Stage

Blackberry JamFifteen year old identical twins Adrian Chirtea and Julian Woodrow, better known as (Blackberry Jam), were introduced here last April.  Since then the boys have been exceedingly busy and it was only last week that I finally caught up with them.

The boys spend all their time making music honing their harmonies for their music videos along with taking part in competitions and showcasing their talents at various venues.

They live in Vermont, in an area where there are more cows than people. Rather than getting bored, they pick up a few instruments and start making music.

Their very first audition was X-Factor; Season One, and at age 14 without any experience (outside of singing in school plays) they made it all the way to Hollywood boot camp!

According to Julian, “Getting eliminated made us realize that we really needed to work at singing.” They returned to Vermont started practicing and working on music videos in September of 2011. Within a month their first video attempt, “Best Love Song” was climbing in views. Within 30 days it earned 10,000 views on YouTube, and now just one year later Blackberry Jam’s channel has over 1.3 million views.
