“Prophet does an impressive job of blurring the lines that separate blues, country and roots-rock.”
Since emerging onto the music scene at age 18 as a member of the seminal rock band Green on Red, Prophet has collaborated with everyone from Warren Zevon and Kelly Willis to Jim Dickinson, and Lucinda Williams among many others.
In recent years, Prophet’s music has been featured in several hit television series including HBO’s “True Blood,” Showtime’s “Californication” and “Billions,” and FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.” He also co-wrote all the songs on Alejandro Escovedo’s 2008 critically acclaimed album “Real Animal”.
Through his live performances with the Mission Express and as a solo artist, Prophet has developed a reputation as an outstanding, entertaining live act and built a loyal fan base from Albuquerque to Stockholm. His live solo performances offer fans the opportunity to experience his songs from a unique perspective.
Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone says, “In his own good-humored, ramshackle way, Prophet earns his last name,” while No Depression’s Peter Blackstock declares, “Chuck Prophet is the best damn songwriter in all of roots rock and I'll stand on Alejandro Escovedo’s coffee table in John Murry’s flip-flops and say that.”
