iTunes Review

As a member of southern California’s Green on Red in the 1980s and now as a singer-songwriter with an ever-expanding solo career, Chuck Prophet continues to mine and refine the subtle terrain of post-Dylan, songwriting. His voice has always delivered the wry, amused but doomed scenario that goes along with the details (“Happy Ending”). His guitar tones are dirty and bluesy, his tempos stick to a comforting lope, and he can’t hide his verbose, beatnik tendencies, even with a premature fade (“Downtime”). Prophet’s the guy at the end of the bar who isn’t likely to get off his seat for anyone, but draw yourself closer and the tall tales twinkle. “Freckle Song” begins things with a one-chord stompfest, while “I Can Feel Your Heartbeat” breaks out into full-color pop. “Naked Ray” offers a ballad with a few scattershot memories, while “A Woman’s Voice” admits, “a woman’s voice can drug you, like an AM radio, like a motorcycle preacher, like a Sunday far from home.” It’s these simple, odd observations that suddenly jut out and make you take notice.

Customer Reviews

Another great CD by CP

Chuck just keeps bringing new and diverse songs to his impressive book of music. A bit less of the up-front guitar that he is justly known for (just go see a live show and prepare for an amazing treat); but a great set of new original tunes. Doubter and Heart Beat will be great to hear live... and Naked Ray is the lovely ballad the CP seems to effortlessly compose. Another great one.

Chuck does it again!

I became of fan of CP at a small club in the Berkshires several years ago. My opinion, Chuck is one of the most underrated artists. Chuck blends a soulful, folk-rock attitude with blues and terrific guitar riffs. As a singer-songwriter, I look to CP for inspiration and he has not let me down with this album.

More unfettered greatness from the Prophet

This record actually required three listens before I truly got into the groove.Those are usually the records I wind up playing for 3 years. This one hasn't left my car or my Mac in two months. I had the chance to catch him in Leeds, England and it was revelatory. I'm a professional musician myself (I was on tour when I saw him) and I really had to do some soul searching after the show. Chuck Prophet is truly an "Artist". You can hear the influences, but you have no freaking idea how he takes those inspirations and turns it into what he does. True greatness on every level. Buy it!!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Chuck Prophet hit the road straight out of high school in the '80s with the psychedelic roots band Green on Red, and he never looked back. In addition to working as a singer/songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, and collaborator with artists as diverse as Cake, Kim Carnes, Solomon Burke, and Alejandro Escovedo, Prophet's deepening solo catalog of self-produced "sideways" roots rock has steadily become his calling card. Born in the Southern California suburb of Whittier, the San Francisco-based Prophet...
