Here we are again at the end of another exciting year!Â
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!Â 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.Â Once a week special recognition was given to a deserving young artist with the presentation of the coveted Video of the Week Award!Â
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.Â Others also made big strides by increasing their YouTube presence through the extra publicity and support provided by this site.
Each year this site is honored to recommend a young artist to participate in Prodigy Camp held in Washington State, USA, under the direction of Film Director/Producer Rick Stevenson.Â Â This past summer the amazing young singer, performer/ musician Thilo Berndt was awarded a full scholarship to attend Prodigy Camp 2012.Â Â Thilo exclaimed;
â€œThis camp was one of the best things that ever happened to me!â€
Through the camp experience Thilo was introduced to the amazing singer, musician, and producer David Ryan Harris who helped Thilo become a creative songwriter and storyteller.Â When the camp concluded Thilo traveled to Los Angeles, California to meet with David and work on some original songs.Â Thilo is currently working on a number of originals that can be used as demos.Â Of course his fans all hope that this compilation of music will soon turn into a CD that Thilo can share with all of us!
While I canâ€™t yet share what I was privileged to privately hear, I can tell you that Thilo â€˜s new sound is beyond amazing!Â His creativity and distinct musical sound is about to turn the heads of many professionals in the industry.
I caught up with Thilo this past week and asked him to tell us a little about his summer adventure. The following is Thiloâ€™s story, in his own words, about his amazing life changing summer experience at Prodigy Camp.
