Prophets of Music Emerging Artist Showcase

'It's been a big part of my healing': Prophets of Music honours slain musicians Josh Hunter and Zack Rathwell

"Just wrapping up its first year, the organization selected three acts — McCrady, The Ashley Hundred and High Love — out of about 50 applicants and helped their development with supports worth more than $30,000.

The artists received months of intense attention, including business essentials, brand development, mentorship and musical education, culminating in an album and a performance showcase on April 29.

Carson Stewart of The Ashley Hundred said some of his bandmates were friends with Josh and Zack.

"They were amazing guys and such talented musicians," he said. "It was a budding friendship that we didn't fully get to explore."
Their deaths weighed heavily on a tight-knit music community in Calgary.

"It was devastating and we were all thankful to have each other there to support each other and grieve together and hurt together, definitely couldn't have done it alone," said Andrew Franks who plays guitar and keyboard in The Ashley Hundred.

One of the biggest contributors to Prophets of Music is Dan Owen, the owner of OCL Studios where the bands recorded their albums.

"We all just offer up our time, talent and treasure however we can to forward the cause and become prophets of music," said Owen.

The goal of the program is to bring the artists' music to the next level."
