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.

Nic Neufeld was first introduced here on Rivenmaster’s Place on February 8th of this year.  Shortly after his article was published it was read by Joel Greenberg an executive for a new company in Los Angeles who called Nic and extended an exciting invitation to come to California and record a song/jingle for them.  Nic was going to be the face of Twistflix. While his parents were a little apprehensive at first they soon realized that this was a legitimate offer and decided to head down to LA to meet the team of professionals.

It was the first week of March when they arrived at the studio without really knowing what to expect as Nic hadn’t heard the lyrics or music for the commercial yet. The writers and producers of the jingle are Nathaniel Levingston and Christian Lopez, A&R for The Jackie Boyz.

“Knowing this ahead of time was a little nerve-wracking, Nic’s Mother said; but as I watched Nic when he heard the beat and read the lyrics I knew we had made the right decision.”

 The first line into the commercial Nate & Christian kind of stopped and shook their heads, auto tune wasn’t needed and it was then that they asked if they could work with Nic.

During the recording of Nic’s first song, Nic was surprised by a visit from the Jackie Boyz who dropped by the studio to see how things were going. They had not yet heard Nic sing and wanted to hear and meet him. Nic asked if he could sing for them and chose the song “Love Me” which they had written for Justin Bieber, and proceeded to sing it acappella.  After leaving the studio they later phoned Nate saying that they would love to work with Nic and write a song for him.
