The Prophets of Music is an innovative not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting emerging artists in the creation of exceptional music. Using a holistic educational approach, Prophets of Music provides resources, mentorship and education in music fundamentals, artistic development, performance, production, business essentials, brand development, and promotion to Canadian musicians working on original music.
The Prophets of Music Foundation was formed by a community of musicians and recording professionals. It is currently being piloted in Alberta, with the goal to expand to other Provinces. The organization is driven by volunteers who have a passion for original music, and who recognize the role a broader collaborative community can play in supporting young musicians “on the cusp.”
The Prophets of Music Society was founded by Barclay Hunter. As a “garage-band” dad and supporter of original music, Barclay, his wife Kelly and daughter Michaela saw the dedication, hard work and challenges that emerging artists face, having shared in the musical journey of their son/brother Josh and Zackariah and the Prophets. The role of the Prophets of Music is to help other emerging artists in their journey, and to facilitate the development and distribution of great original Canadian music that might not otherwise find its way into our lives.
High Hopes // Music and tribute A song written and produced by Zackariah and the Prophets, and is included on the band’s 2014 EP.
The Prophets of Music is driven by volunteers who have a passion for original music, and an even greater passion for supporting emerging artists in their journey to create exceptional music and strengthening the Canadian music scene.
