Featured Artist Contest Winner Announcement
Congratulations to the V-Knights! The V-Knights are a three-piece band comprised of 11 year old twin brothers (Gabriel-bass guitar, Christian-lead guitar) and their 8 year old brother, Alex, on drums. The group started performing in January 2010.
With 18 original songs to their credit, the self-taught V-Knights have recently been featured on Disney Radio and performed live a staggering 31 times in 2010 alone. In August, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital selected the V-Knights as the official band for the Kids Rock Stars Program sponsored by Kohl’s, a national outreach initiative conceived to prevent childhood obesity and promote healthy families. The very same month, the philanthropic band performed at the annual Blues in the Schools event hosted by the Phoenix Blues Society. The event raises money and provides children with free music lessons along with curriculum to share the history of blues in schools. (Information and Photo courtesy bands reverbnation page).
I have listened to quite a few acts on reverbnation over the past year. Many different genres, voice tones and lyrical subject matter have come through my speakers. On Friday I had the pleasure of pressing play on the V-Knights music and though I am not normally a fan of blues I loved what these guys were doing. The music is played with so much heart and energy. They are literally three blues brothers. Having accomplished so much in such a short amount of time they are inspirational to artists who hope to become established in the world of music. I am definitely a fan and that is why this trio have become the first selected as winners of the first Featured Artist contest!
Whether you love blues music or not the V-Knights should be on your list of artists to follow! Check out their links:
