I donâ€™t remember how I first came across todayâ€™s featured young artist in the making.Â It could have been one of his original videos on his YouTube Channel or from another site. However, what I do remember is how impressed I was that someone whose guitar was bigger than he was, could totally amaze me with his stage presence, bold and courageous introductions and performance prowess.
While Canada is known for its colder climate and French influenced providence’s, most people would not think about Country Western Music being a strong part of Canadian culture.Â However, if I said the name Shania Twain or The Moffatts , itâ€™s a bit easier to understand how Country Music could find its way into the heart and life of a nine year old boy interestingly named Beamer!
One of the first questions I asked was how Beamer got his name.Â His father informed me that Beamerâ€™s birth initials are actually BMW hence (Beamer). What makes this story even better is that Beamers first ride home from the hospital after being born was in his familyâ€™s car, which at the time was a BMW.
I found out that little Beamer has always had a love of music.Â His Mom and Dad said;
â€œIt was even evident when he was very young, when the most successful way to lull him to sleep was to put on some Santanaâ€.
By the time Beamer was three years old, he started to take an interest in drums and after breaking all his Momâ€™s wooden spoons, his parents decided that they had better buy him a drum set!
Today Iâ€™m excited to introduce for the first time on this site nine year old Carson Lueders who will amaze you with his natural talent both vocally and instrumentally.
Carson began singing shortly after he started playing guitar, just after his 5th birthday. He realized that it made the song more fun to play if he sang along, and it also made his performances much more enjoyable to listen to. He was one of the only kids at his First Christmas recital to sing along while playing. His parents were pleasantly surprised to see he had good vocal pitch and tone as well as advanced guitar skills for a boy his age.Â Others have described his voice as low for his age with a unique raspy sound.
What makes his talent even more amazing is that Carson seems to be the only family member with good vocal skills. His family gets the privilege of hearing him sing all day [in the house, in the car, in the stores, and even in the shower]. While you may think that his family would be annoyed, they tell me that they love his singing and are all quite envious of Carsonâ€™s musical ability. Mom stated;
â€œIf at anytime we want to get Carson to practice playing or singing one of us just has to start and he just canâ€™t handle hearing how horrible we are so he takes over!â€
Carsonâ€™s vocal range is expanding and growing daily. In fact big differences have been noticed in just the last 6 months. Mom exclaimed;
â€œItâ€™s amazing that Carson was even able to sing well after having a big metal orthodontic expander bar put in the roof of his mouth. He recorded his last 4 videos with this in!â€ (The ortho bar has now been removed and Carsonâ€™s smile is even bigger and better!) Continue reading “Carson Lueders, Nine Year Old Musical Marvel”
