Blackwater Prophecy / Bio

Launched in 2005, Blackwater Prophecy found itself featured on MySpace, realeasing a full length and an EP, gaining 5K fans through MySpace marketing, and being invited to play local Hollywood venues like the Whiskey A Go Go thanks to their dynamic presence and music. Through the years the project has seen line up changes although with the constant of it's front woman Syren Franco. Blackwater Prophecy is perseverent with the vision of delivering a unique experience through their music.

The band as it performs today features the sultry melodic vocal harmonies and poetic lyrics of Syren Franco, the lead and riffs of both Chava Crow and Nathan Stairs, the rhythmic heartbeat of Jay H, and the driving vibrations of Derek Shultz on bass.

Today the band considers itself in reboot phase moving forward with two original members and new seasoned member which give the ensemble a new dynamic. They've returned to their favorite venues in Hollywood and Orange County. Mainly having played at venues such as The Whiskey, Viper Room, The Airliner, and Malones, the band enjoys playing intimate venues where they can connect with the audience on a more personal level and today only book venues which they can form strong partnerships in delivering premium entertainment.

In 2007 they were featured on MySpace and reaching high ranks on the charts in the then popular site, and today the group is climbing the charts on ReverbNation. They are on rotation of several internet stations and College Radio in Southern California. Their Albums "Echoes" and "The Meridian Hour" can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby as well as Amoeba Music and Second Spin.

Familiar yet standing out from other female fronted bands, Syren's style emulates male vocalists of the industry though of course with her own feminine flair she lives up to her name and lures you in with her harmonies and melodies.

Blackwater Prophecy aims to interact with the crowd during and after the shows, and with Syren's sultry and sometimes haunting melodies in front of Nate's and Chava's heavy guitar riffs and driving rhythm of Derek and Jay , Blackwater Prophecy is a satisfying lingering experience.

The song "The Dreamer" is a testament to their persistence in pursuit of their dreams, thus the group decided to offer this highly memorable piece for free download on their ReverbNation profile.

The groups aim is to spread the music as vastly as possible through playing live concerts, and through underground radio airplay.
