Discovering and introducing new talent is what Rivenmaster’s Place is all about!  This year has been no exception with more than twenty new artists introduced here for the first time!  This week we are bringing you not just a new, but also a very unique talent.  Not only is their relationship unique but the type of music they share is refreshingly different from the normal pop genre which has become so dominant throughout the music industry and the world.   

Steven and Peter Gait are twelve year old twins who live in Helensburgh, Scotland; their home town is the birthplace of the inventor of the first working television, John Logie Baird. Helensburgh is situated on the scenic Firth of Clyde the famous river on which the Liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth were built. The boys, as you can see from the photographs, are not identical twins and also differ in their natures, likes and dislikes, yet they do enjoy singing together. They have a younger sister Amanda, who is their number one fan.

This past month the boys released their debut CD consisting of 9 songs that display the versatility of the Gaitway Brothers.

The music includes Scottish and English traditional songs, atmospheric film-music and several thought-provoking original compositions. The music is united by its ‘folk flavor’ and by its emotive nature which always ends, on a note of hope. Sung from the heart and mixed professionally, this will be one you will want for your collection.

I asked the boys to create a special video where they could introduce you to themselves and tell you a little about their music and their dreams for the future.  I’m delighted to present this video for your enjoyment!

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.
