A Midwest born and raised lyrical powerhouse with an original style self-branded as "VENTURE SOUND". Prophacy can only be described as a complex hybrid mix of Classical / R&B / Hip-Hop / Rock sprinkled with a hint of Gothic seasoning. It has been said by other artists such as Reckless (of the United Kingdom) along with radio DJ’s such as Houston "Strongarm" Alexander (of Omaha, NE’s 106.9 The Power), that Prophacy is one of the most stunning vocal stage performers in Hip-Hop today. As an independent artist Prophacy has even gained respect and worked alongside established artists such as: Chino XL, Tech N9ne, Paul Wall and Bizzy Bone (Bone Thugs N Harmony). That work ethic has also seen the artist being featured on tracks produced by some of the industries most talented producers from around the world such as The Legendary Traxster, Danel Beatz, Epademik (The Dead Beatz), and DJ Quik.
As a registered ASCAP publisher / writer, Prophacy comes with a business knowledge that many other independent artist seem to lack. As a matter of fact he plans on owning and running his own fully functional independent record label in the future along with starting up a clothing company called, “ThuGotH”. Most recently in a joint venture with the owner of GuerRevolution Records, the artist released his self-titled sophomore album “Prophacy” on October 2014. The new album has already gained positive reviews from music sites along with print publications, and while boasting 23 genre bending tracks, the album easily shows artistic growth and proves levels beyond his debut album release, “The Descent”. The Descent album which came out fourth quarter 2009 sold around two-thousand hard copies independently before being taken out of print due to business reasons during first quarter 2011. It is still considered a big success regardless of its cut life span, garnishing great reviews from websites and publications worldwide such as “Culture Asylum Magazine” and “XXL Magazine“. Most importantly, the release of Prophacy’s 2009 debut album allowed him to become an accepted artist of iTunes, and also opened doors to bigger business connections with record stores as far from his home as Japan (such as Kizara Records and Bout Records). Prophacy has even branched out in the networking field, working with other artist and producers from different countries around the world, earning him a good level of respect in the underground community by fans and his other artist peers alike.
If you have any sense of the drive and determination that it would take to come from a non-music mecca area like Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA which are both widely overlooked when it comes to musical talent. I'm sure that you can tell that Prophacy has a pretty good focus on what he wants to do and also how he is going to get there. Being an honest man coming from a hard life full of violence, molestation, instability and a family that turned a blind eye to him as an adolescent is part of what fuels Prophacy’s music to be so genuine and heartfelt to any listener. When you hear his music it just has a way of capturing you to the point where you can almost come away feeling as if you know him personally, and have been there with him the whole time. As a true artist of purpose / producer / song writer, Prophacy does what his heart and soul tell him to do, not changing fads or commercial pressures. Taking risks and not allowing himself to follow the musical fads of the day which has become the thing to do especially within the Rap genre these days. Prophacy instead chooses to go against the given grain and truly work hard to bring real music with honest messages to his listeners.
