Chuck Prophet returns to Europe with the Mission Express in support of his thirteenth album, 'Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins', released earlier this year on Yep Roc. Every year Chuck’s ups the quality stakes on his albums from the amazing ‘Let Freedom Ring’, to ‘Temple Beautiful’ and his last album ‘Night Surfer’ they have all seen Chuck at the top of his game. Where Chuck excels the most is in the live setting with his two hour powerhouse shows pulling tracks from his massive back catalogue and stretching them out with epic guitar solos on songs like ‘You Did’ or ‘Castro Halloween’. 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, Kelly Eillis, Jim Dickinson, Alejandro Escovedo and Lucinda Williams. Prophet’s music has been featured in films as well as the hit tv shows “True Blood”, “Californication” and “Sons of Anarchy” and most recently been covered by the likes of Bruce Springsteen.

Need we say more........ singer songwriter, painter, essayist - thirty five highly acclaimed records and published five books. His last record release, ‘The Rose of Roscrae’, a 52 track "folk opera" on the West was recognised as maybe the most important Americana record of all time by UK Folk, the top Folk album of 2015 by Mojo Magazine, and hailed in top ten lists in two dozen publications including The Los Angeles Times. Tom's songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, kd Lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris DeMent, Joe Ely and a hundred others. He has appeared on the David Letterman TV show five times. He graduated from The University of California with a Master's Degree in Criminology and has been doing justice to great song writing ever since. A better recommendation, we could not offer for Tom Russell. He'll be arriving with a bunch of new songs to parade at The Met.
