It’s been some time since Tallan Noble Latz was featured here at Rivenmaster’s Place. In fact four years since his “Blues in Tennis Shoes” article published. While he has appeared three times since that first article, it’s been far too long since we have been able to bring you a full update regarding T-Man’s musical adventures and accomplishments.

Tallan, who just turned 15, stays extremely busy performing at festivals, performing arts centers and theaters across the Midwest. Tallan has also been headlining many charity events raising awareness and money for a number of organizations!

 

During the past four years Tallan has been honing his craft, working harder than ever to define his sound and guitar skills, and most importantly working on his stage presence. Tallan’s performances have been dubbed a “Must See, One of a Kind” concert event! To maintain that status, Tallan always gives 110% at every performance which is the reason his reputation is spreading so rapidly.

Tallan Amazing His Audiance

Tallan’s musical direction in the last few years has evolved from Blues to a more roots Rock, guitar driven sound. Tallan calls his music, guitar driven blues infused progressive rock and roll. This evolution has come very naturally to Tallan and everyday he evolves more and more into his own style and sound.

Tallan has worked hard to become the package that concert goers want to see. This has been made evident by Tallan being handpicked to open for many big name artists. He has had the opportunity lately to open for bands such as: Kenny Wayne Shepherd at Buddy Guy’s in Chicago, IL; The Los Lonely Boys at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL. He’s even been selected to open for some musical legends like BB King at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts in Bloomington, IL. In addition, Tallan opened for a legend that is no longer with us, Johnny Winter at Turner Hall in Milwaukee, WI, just a month before he passed.

Sheridan Archbold Truly Talented Twelve Year Old Musical Marvel

“I believe God made me for a purpose, and when I sing, I feel that it’s something that I am meant to do.”

SHERIDAN ARCHBOLD Profile Full

 

Discovery of new young talent is always the objective of this site, but rarely are we so fortunate to find a talent like twelve year old Sheridan Archbold. While nearly every genre and style of music has been showcased here, one genre has been sorely neglected. Of course I’m speaking of Classical music and Opera. Not because we don’t recognize the importance and beauty of this style of music, but because finding a youngster who can do it justice is not a simple task.

Sheridan is billed as “The World’s Youngest Soprano Crossover Operatic Singer.”

While I’m not certain he’s the youngest, he certainly is one of if not the most talented I have ever heard. The clarity of his vocals, his perfect pitch and tone, and his use of vocal techniques beyond his years has earned him the right to be respected as a true professional performer.

In fact Sheridan has a most impressive resume for a young man his age!

I think what caught my eye watching him for the first time was his short comedic openings that he has for every music video he creates.  It’s in these short openers that you can catch a glimpse of this young man’s personality and the tool he uses to connect with his viewing audience.

“We have lived in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and Australia. We now live in Yorkville, a small town in Illinois.
