ROCK STAR OF THE WEEK - KARTER DAVENPORT
8th Grader at Leslie Middle School
RiverCity Legends of Rock and Rockers
Guitar and Vocals
Started at RiverCity Rock Star Academy in September 2016
When did you start playing music and why?
I started playing music because my dad made me join RiverCity Rock Star Academy and once I was in I got hooked. Just kidding about the ‘my dad made me join’ part - I started playing in 2012 when the video game Rocksmith came out. I learned how to play instruments, but wasn’t really into it until I joined RCRSA.
What is your favorite song you've ever played at RiverCity?
That’s a hard one. I think ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles was my most challenging song I’ve performed, but I think either ‘Eight Days A Week’ by The Beatles and ‘Cannon’ by The White Stripes takes the cake on this one.
What do you like about RiverCity?
Everybody there has a lot of personality and there are a lot of characters. And everybody is very supportive and optimistic for every song you play. I really feel as if this is the perfect outlet for me and others.
What are your favorite bands/artists right now?
Are you serious? I would always say iTunes. The punk and rock and roll categories.
What things do you like to do when you’re not at RiverCity?
That’s hard to answer, but I do watch some YouTube, play songs that I am working on and look at tabs on stuff.
