“Uher Brothers” Tremendous Triplet Teen Trio

Uher Brothers

 

Every now and then I stumble upon a group of youngsters that just seem to capture my attention.  It’s either something in their singing talent, their presentation or performances, or just the simple fact that they possess charisma that makes me take a second look.

When I search for talent in youngsters I am not always looking for the best, most polished, most skilled or choreographed act.  Sometimes I’m searching for that hidden factor that you just can’t describe with words.  Maybe it’s that same X FACTOR that Simon Cowell is searching for.

Well, whatever you want to call “IT”’, these boys have “IT”!

Uher Brothers features 15 year old triplet brothers – Tyler, Scott, and Dustin.  The boys will be entering a new chapter in their lives this fall as they enter high school.  They have participated in the school choir since third grade and did their first performance together as a group at the Spring Choral concert at school by singing Lean On Me acappella.

 Even though they were just discovering their ability to sing together, they demonstrated a certain charm that just plain made you feel good.  In fact this first clip really made me smile at the end due to their comedic charm and special natural flare.  I said to myself, I have to see more!

As I went a little further I found another performance they did in school.  I was really quite amazed with their backup harmony in this second clip.  However, it was their showmanship that outweighed everything else. Each of their personalities shined through as they proudly performed their special choreographed number.  But it was the song they chose that really surprised me, being it was a song written fourteen years before they were even born.  Billy Joel’s Longest Time.

Since that first performance things have progressed rapidly for the boys. They captured first place in the duo/trio category at the Illinois Music Association’s statewide competition in May of both 2010 and 2011.  Additionally, Tyler was awarded the first place trophy for his solo performances in the same competition for both years.

Connor Blackley Third Round X-Factor Audition Experience

Connor Blackley
"Connor Blackley at Home"

Connor Blackley has always been an amazing vocalist!

From the very first article I wrote about him, I saw a tremendous young talented singer, whose skills and abilities were destined to carry him on a great adventure, ultimately fulfilling his dream to become a Pop/ Country recording artist.  In fact I likened him to a miniature Garth Brooks in the making!

While Connor is very versatile and should not be locked into just one genre, I think you will agree that when he sings a country ballad he demands your attention.  Even more so now, with his treble days behind him, Connor’s new mature, full sounding vocals, draw you in delivering even greater meaning to the songs he performs.

I’m very happy to debut his latest single cover here for your enjoyment!  If you have been keeping up with Connor on this site, you’re going to be amazed at his brand new sound in this cover of  “Anymore by: Travis Tritt!

In my last update I announced that Connor and his good friend and singing partner Cortnie Frazier had won the opportunity to audition for Simon Crowell’s new reality singing competition show X-Factor.

While I wish I could tell you that we will be seeing Connor perform this fall, he and Cortnie were not selected to go further in the competition.  Regardless of this decision for this year, these two fine young singers not only enjoyed a wonderful experience, but also were benefited by some terrific local media attention prior to their audition for the show.
