Here we are again at the end of another exciting year!
This is our fifth Christmas at Rivenmaster’s Place so we wanted to use this time to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and Joyous New Year! It’s been another amazing year with the introduction of 39 new artists to the site and many exclusive updates from our regular featured guests.
The website literally featured hundreds of new videos over the year, sometimes updated daily with newly released singles. Once a week special recognition was given to a deserving young artist with the presentation of the coveted Video of the Week Award!
Radio Personality “Bruce Owens” presented us with new Radio Interviews which were added to the Radio Interview Page, and a very special new website created by Day Six called The Why of Musicwas recently added to our main menu!
Updates to the website’s included a new menu page and the creation of a New Page featuring links to all the young artists on the site.
This year a number of artists enjoyed big success with the advancement of their careers to include signing with new management or award winning producers. Others also made big strides by increasing their YouTube presence through the extra publicity and support provided by this site.
While visiting the area in and around Los Angeles this past week, we were thrilled to meet up with two outstanding young actors who are also both amazing dancers and performers. I invited them to meet me at the Hard Rock Café about halfway down the CityWalk to Universal Studios. I of course was celebrating the day at Universal with the prolific young vocalist/performer Sam Santiago and his family during our stay with them in Irvine.
The restaurant was empty at the time of our arrival which actually surprised me and the waiter quickly provided a table for our party of Ten. As we all found a seat everyone began to arrive. I walked outside to meet Christian Traeumer and his mother Tomasine who I already knew were delightful people, but meeting them both in person was a true joy! I immediately found Christian to be an effervescent, fun loving, humorous, and bubbly young man demonstrating the kind of personality that lights up a room as soon as he walks in. Since they were the first to arrive I had the opportunity to visit one on one with the both of them before the arrival of our second guests.
We were just beginning to order when Jay Jay Warren and his mother Beverly walked in. Jay Jay immediacy approached me with an outstretched hand. His warm personality drew everyone to him like a magnet as he walked around the table making self introductions. I found Jay Jay to be full of life and always smiling. In fact, the entire time the joy he expressed on his face made me realize that this young man was on the rise for more reasons than one! His mother Beverly was also amazingly charming so it’s easy to see the apple does not fall far from the tree here.
