“I’m so ready for this – I feel like I’ve been ready for this for years.”
Of all the artists that have graced this site, Sam Verlinden is one of the longest and most featured talents on Rivenmaster’s Place. Sam’s first article ran on September 30, 2009, only a few weeks after the sites conception, and he shares the honor of being one of two artists who were featured nearly every day for an entire month.
Sam Verlinden has always demonstrated a vocal talent that exceeds his years of experience. He has amazed millions through his YouTube Site and excited audiences numbering in the thousands at outdoor concert events held in New Zealand. While the ocean is the only thing that has kept him from a recent visit to the United States his fame has not been hindered, reaching across several continents resulting in an ever growing fan base.
Sam’s last article published here was in 2011 not long after he performed at the legendary Parachute Festival on the Main stage. This performance really gave him a boost to his local fan numbers and set the stage for even bigger things.
Sam has never stopped working, performing and singing, and like most young singers grabs every opportunity to perform. There was also the move to College, (High School in New Zealand), which tripled the amount of homework that goes with that territory, as well as his active involvement in rugby. Saying Sam was busy would be an understatement when it comes to his everyday life activities.
