Chuck Prophet - singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer.
Chuck started his wild ride back in 1984 when Green on Red plucked him out of Berkeley, CA and put him in the van for an eight-year ride, recording over six albums with them. Green on Red were seminal purveyors of American Roots Rock aka Alt-country and broke up in 1992 just before an entire movement followed in their wake.
Since then Chuck has recorded fourteen amazing solo albums and toured and recorded with Lucinda Williams, Aimee Mann, Cake, Alejandro Escovedo and Jonathan Richman. In addition to that, Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Solomon Burke and Heart have covered his songs.
Chuck’s live shows are second to none and have sold out gigs across the UK featuring slots on festivals like Summertyne, Kilkenny, Glastonbury, Roskilde, etc.
