“When attending Church even as a toddler, Nic would stand in the aisle clapping and singing along. He always amazed me being right on pitch and perfectly on beat.” Mrs. Carmella Neufeld
Rivenmaster’s Place is always happy to find new young artists to introduce to our readers. I think one of the greatest joys of working this site is being able to follow some of these youngsters from the very beginning of their musical journey, and watching their progress along the way! While some take off like rockets other just slowly plug along gaining invaluable experience, honing their musical prowess as they go!
Eleven year old Nic Neufeld lives in the very small town of Dodsland , Saskatchewan. By small town, I mean a population of 200 people. But there is nothing small about the talent or the drive that Nic Neufeld demonstrates to succeed as a performing vocal artist.
Nic has been singing since he was able to talk, often performing for family and friends. When younger, Nic would walk around with his microphone and toy guitars. Even as a baby music was a comfort to Nic. If he was crying, his parents would turn on music and he would immediately stop. At 3 years old he would walk around the house singing his favorite Wiggles, or Backyardigans songs.
When YTV began playing Justin Bieber videos, Nic became and instant fan. Nic’s parents enrolled him in piano lessons but soon found that he just wanted to play, not really enjoying the structure of lessons. While they encourage him to continue, Nic only wanted to play by ear. At 6 years old he stopped taking lessons, but continued to sing and just have fun on the piano.
