In 2021, Chuck Prophet released his 15th solo record, The Land That Time Forgot. NPR said about Prophet: “He's as original as the characters he brings to life, in all their tawdry, tattered glory.”
A longtime San Franciscan, he cut his teeth in the music business in the 1980s as member of the legendary “Paisley Underground” group Green on Red.
With his band, the Mission Express, which includes his wife Stephanie Finch, he regularly tours the U.S. and Europe, and has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, Austin City Limits and more.
His songs have been featured in television (True Blood, Sons of Anarchy) and in movies (P.S. I Love You), Teeth.) In writing on what he was currently listening to in 2004, renowned writer Stephen King wrote on Chuck’s music: "It's lovely, incantatory and mysterious. God bless Chuck Prophet."
Through the years, as a producer, singer/songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, and collaborator he’s worked with artists as diverse as Alejandro Escovedo, Cake, Solomon Burke, Lucinda Williams and Warren Zevon.
