Alec in WILDerland – Trust Your Wild Side

“When you trust your wild side anything is possible!”   Alec J Fischer

Alec J Fischer Profile


This website has been privileged to introduce and promote some of the brightest and most talented young people in the world. However, we have yet to feature anyone quite like Thirteen year old Alec J Fischer. 

I first discovered Alec’s videos on YouTube more than two years ago.  I have watched with great interest every segment of his Alec in WILDerland Series. 

You can learn much from Alec by watching his more than enlightening and entertaining videos, and adventure along with him as he visits distant places around the world.

After recently contacting Alec’s management, Alec agreed to share his story with Rivenmaster’s Place. 

Today I’m going to stray from the normal way of presenting a new artist and publish Alec’s story almost exactly as it was received. I believe his story will inspire and keep you interested to the very end.  Alec is a survivalist in every sense of the word and Rivenmaster’s Place is honored to present him here.

 Alec’s Story:

“According to my mom it took 17 grueling hours for me to be delivered in South Dakota.  I was behind schedule and the very first reaction to my entry was my dad’s comment,

“Oh my gosh, look at his fingers!” 

He said that because my fingers and toes were webbed together as if I was made for the water (something that still requires different types of surgeries as my body grows).

Reed Deming Masterful Music Machine

I was first introduced to Reed Deming by a very faithful subscriber to this site.  Anthony wrote me with much enthusiasm exclaiming how I really needed to check out Reed Deming’s YouTube Site. I take every recommendation very seriously when I receive one, and this has once again proven to be a good policy.  What I found was no ordinary twelve year old boy covering a Bruno Mars song while accompanying himself acoustically on his guitar.  It took me only moments to formulate a letter to his parents inviting him to appear on this site!

It could be said that Reed Deming has music in his DNA.  He is a true musician and loves performing, songwriting, playing guitar and saxophone and even more cerebral pursuits like music theory.  He has a passion and drive that are uncommon for his age.  In addition, he has a unique gift – perfect pitch.  Even his vocal coach who has worked with many famous pop and rock artists was stunned when she discovered that Reed could hit any note she named.   Reed would sing the note requested and she would play the note on the piano to confirm 100% accuracy every time!  This was so amazing, that a pilot for a reality TV show about pop stars shot a segment with Linda trying to outwit Reed with this game.  She couldn’t stump him.

His Mother shared one of her favorite stories about Reed:

“Reed was introduced to Josh Groban’s music by a family friend when he was about 5.  He loved his voice and the intense complexity of his music.  He also loved Frank Sinatra (I have no idea how he found his music).  Both were pretty surprising choices for a little boy.  One day I asked him which artist he like best and after considering the question seriously for a few seconds replied that he preferred Josh Groban.  When I asked him why, he said “Because Frank Sinatra’s voice is flat.”  He was 6!”
