Chuck Prophet Debuts!

Thursday, Oct. 28 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)

Rock/PopSinger-Songwriter

Charles Prophet is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. A Californian, Prophet first achieved notice in the American psychedelic/desert rock group Green On Red, with whom he toured and recorded in the 1980s. He has also recorded several solo records and gained prominence as a musician and songwriter.

Since his neo-psychedelic Green On Red days, Chuck Prophet has been turning out country, folk, blues, and Brill Building classicism. His latest release, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGET is something different, a weather vane picking up signals from outer space – or maybe it's the Heartland. Priced out of his beloved hometown, San Francisco, Prophet found himself re-energized in Upstate NY just a few miles from the Vermont border – and made a record that is much a 21st-century exorcism as it is America.

Chuck has gone on to have his compositions and co-writes recorded by many artists including Alejandro Escovedo, Bruce Springsteen, Solomon Burke, Heart, Michael Grimm, Kim Carnes, Peter Wolf, Kim Richey, Carter's Chord, Jace Everett, Arc Angels, Micky & the Motorcars, Bun E. Carlos, Mark Erelli, Mofro, Kevin Bowe, Calvin Russell, Chris Knight, and Kelly Willis. He has toured with Memphis producer and pianist Jim Dickinson, who recorded Prophet's "Hungry Town". In Nashville, Tennessee, Prophet, and songwriter Kim Richey penned "I'm Gone", a top-40 country hit in 2002 for singer Cyndi Thomson.
