Chuck Prophet

Chuck Prophet hit the road straight out of high school in the '80s with the psychedelic roots band Green on Red, and he never looked back. In addition to working as a singer/songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, and collaborator with artists as diverse as Cake, Kim Carnes, Solomon Burke, and Alejandro Escovedo, Prophet's deepening solo catalog of self-produced "sideways" roots rock has steadily become his calling card.

Born in the Southern California suburb of Whittier, the San Francisco-based Prophet made his debut as a solo artist in 1990 with Brother Aldo; one U.K. music paper called its collision of lo-fi and country "as close to the genuine article as a white boy can get." Developing his style over the course of seven albums, including Balinese Dancer (1993) and Feast of Hearts (1995), Prophet hit his stride with his gritty meditation on suburbia, Homemade Blood (1997), followed by the studio-tweaked and poetic The Hurting Business (1998) and the streetwise epic No Other Love (2002), which sparked the radio hit "Summertime Thing," while the title track was covered by Heart.

Prophet's 2004 release Age of Miracles marries vintage sounds with state-of-the-art studio technique, while never compromising its raw roots foundation. Released in 2007, Soap and Water barges through rock's barriers with a helping of swamp rock and hip-hop. Between albums, Kelly Willis and Boz Scaggs are among the many artists who've laid down versions of Prophet's songs, while his guitar tracks have shown up on recordings from Warren Zevon, Lucinda Williams, and Jewel. In 2005 and 2006, Prophet rejoined Green on Red as they reunited for a series of shows; one of the concerts was released on the album Valley Fever: Live in Tucson 2005.

Prophet continued to perform as a solo artist and with his band, the Mission Express, featuring his wife Stephanie Finch, on keyboards and vocals, and released Dreaming Waylon's Dreams in 2007, following it with a politically themed solo album, Let Freedom Ring, in 2009. The fascinating and ambitious Temple Beautiful, a concept album that tackles a sort of alternative history of Prophet's adopted San Francisco, arrived early in 2012. In 2014, Prophet returned with the album Night Surfer, which featured instrumental assistance from former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and Prairie Prince, drummer with the Tubes. ~ Denise Sullivan & Steve Leggett, Rovi

Chuck! The best live show you'll ever see. Albums are awesome, too, but check him out live if you can. Drive and drive and drive to do it. It's worth it.
No offense, ladies, but this is guy music. I'm thinkin' cold beer - around the old pickup truck.

How could you not love this? So, so cool. Jump into the river... Absolutely great music, Jet
This band is big in the Tampa area/indy station.
Been listening to chuck for 7 years. He is fun. Guitar chords for his songs are fun to learn as well as the lyrics. Got my dad pumped on him. Now its his pandora station.
Heard his song on True Blood
Probably my favorite is "Storm Across The Sea" - great sound.
very different sound. still deciding if i like him or not - guess i must if i bothered to write this :)
