Chuck Prophet – singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer extraordinaire – returns with his band The Mission Express for the first time in three years.
Chuck will be touring in support of his fourteenth studio album, The Land That Time Forgot.
Chuck started his wild ride as a kid back in 1984 when Green on Red plucked him out of Berkeley, CA and threw him in the van for an eight year ride and the recording of as many albums. Green on Red were seminal purveyors of American roots-rock and broke up in 1992 just before an entire movement followed in their wake, call it alt-country or americana, alongside the Long Ryders they were the first.
Since then Chuck has recorded thirteen amazing solo albums and toured and recorded with Lucinda Williams, Aimee Mann, Cake and Jonathan Richman. In addition to that Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Solomon Burke, Alejandro Escovedo and Heart have recorded his songs, along with a host of others.
Expect to hear some of the best guitar work you have ever heard in the tradition of such players as Keith Richards while Prophet vocal styles have been compared to Dylan and Tom Petty. Chuck’s never been one to rest on his laurels and ride it out and his last five records have been his best yet.
