Prophetic March & The Eternal Spirits
You will probably never meet another artist quite like Bobby Pilon of Prophetic March & The Eternal Spirits and the recent success of his debut single is testament to his originality and extraordinary artistic range.

Bobby Pilon will be the first to admit that he's been classified by hospitals as a Schizophrenic. But he prefers to be called a "Hearer" due to the ventricle expansion in the brain where dopamine builds up causing auditory hallucinations. To Bobby, these hallucination are actually his subconscious thoughts being heard by his conscious mind, along with his own current thoughts. After only a few minutes of listening to his debut radio single 'Industrial Green Revolution' you know you are dealing with an intriguing artist with an unusual muse. Although plaqued by bouts of anxiety and schizophrenia, with cognitive therapy and his love for the arts and the Divine, Bobby Pilon has been able to pursue his dream of music and even secure the Akademia Music Awards for best Song & Album for Christian Psychedelic for October 2014. As Bobby insightfully points us, this probably makes him the founder of the new genre Christian Psychadelic, since he is not aware of any other awards previously granted in that category! Lily Clark recently interviewed Bobby of the Prophetic March & The Eternal Spirits to learn more about this intriguing new artist and what we can expect from him in the near future.

LILY: When When did you first discover your love of music?
BOBBY: The summer of ‘95 when I bought my first California fender with the extra money I saved from working weekly split shifts as a short order cook in Grand Bend, Ontario. That was the summer before my first year at OCAD Toronto where I slept in my car until I found my apartment during my first week of school.

LILY: Your song is receiving a positive listener response on radio. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on radio?
BOBBY: A sense of gratification of the past fifteen year mental gauntlet I had to transverse, searching an answer I had to find, learn and share. I felt an exhaling breath of relief that my destiny was finished and was now starting to be shared by the power of others as well as myself.

LILY: What was the inspiration behind your debut radio single?
BOBBY: My inspiration was the New Golden Age we have entered that the history books may call, ‘The New Modern Renaissance.’ The world must continue to keep going for our health, to protect life on Earth to continue to be fruitful and multiply. For a painter/musician/author, a name for an era that is in the form of a rebirth for their kin equals the human race and all of creation is most comforting, inspirational and welcoming.

LILY: Would you say that the mood of your other songs is in the same vein as your debut radio single?
BOBBY: I hope all my work bring others divine understanding and clarity of the purpose of why God created heaven and earth and that we all must learn to overcome the knowledge of good and evil and gain control of character as we keep in mind God is understanding of our shortcomings and is overflowing with grace through Jesus.

LILY: How would you characterize yourself as a musician? (ex. Down-to-earth, serious, fun-loving...)
BOBBY: Experimental and in love with the studio, not so much of the stage. I do have a desire to have my own family over everything else right now because I'm 39 now. I'm no spring chicken…

LILY: Did you come from a musical background? Are there other musicians in your family?
BOBBY: Yes, my grandfather could play many instruments and can some of my dad's brothers.

LILY: What do you find most rewarding about being a musician? What do you find most challenging?
BOBBY: The reward is that I've created so much as a self taught artist. The challenge is the need to find I teacher outside myself now.

LILY: Who are your role models in music?
BOBBY: God, my family and hard workers from all walks of life.

LILY: Describe your best or most memorable performance.
BOBBY: I haven’t played on stage much but simply play with friends and record on the fly.

LILY: What advice would you give to young, aspiring musicians out there who are unsure and need guidance?
BOBBY: You can always leave the root note and play off key as long as you come back to the root note.

LILY: Thanks for taking time out to share your story with me. I wish you continued success!
