Galilee of the Nations is a record label founded in 1997 in the Galilee, Israel.[1] At first it was based in Tiberias, Israel,[2] but later moved its offices to Nashville, Tennessee, US. The label specialises in music of Messianic content and style.[1]

The label was involved in a 1998 joint project with Integrity Music, Adonai: The Power of Worship from the Land of Israel, a compilation album featuring multiple artists.[2] Billboard called it "a stunning record featuring performances by several powerful artists".[3] It is considered a leading supplier of messianic music with a growing portfolio of artists.[4]

The label signed a long-term distribution deal with Provident Music Distribution in 1999. Galilee of the Nations Music was also affiliated with City of Peace Records and City of Peace Films and Video.[1]

There is a website about Galilee Of The Nations & Messianic Music[5] which is solely developed for the purpose of promoting Israeli singers. They have a collection of worship or praise releases from the popular artists and worship leaders from Israel often available as video and with written material too.
