Next month Californian alt-rocker Chuck Prophet is touring the UK with his wife and co-conspirator, Stephanie Finch.

The tour features Chuck and Stephanie playing songs from each-others albums spanning over twenty years, digging deep into some tunes you haven’t heard for a while. They will be joined by friend and native New Yorker Jesse Malin.

Chuck Prophet has been on the scene since his days with Americana pioneers Green on Red from 1984 to 1992, with whom he recorded seven albums.

Chuck has gone on to have a successful solo career with over twelve albums under his belt, writing songs for the likes of Solomon Burke, Heart and Alejandro Escovedo and as a sideman with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Warren Zevon and Cake.

In addition to his strong back-catalogue and visceral live shows, Chuck’s music has recently been heard in hit television series True Blood and Sons of Anarchy. His live shows are some of the best on the circuit both with his band and solo. This will be a rare time to catch him in a duo setting.

Jesse Malin has been on the scene almost as long, revered by iconic figures from Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer to Joey Ramone and Jim Jarmusch, “His songs are so good they hurt my feelings”, Ryan Adams once said, and it’s little wonder considering Malin’s ability to bridge the reckless abandon of The Replacements with the sensitive introspection of Neil Young.

Born in NYC, Malin formed D Generation, the influential punk band, before going solo in 2002.

Releasing more than seven solo albums and collaborating with Bruce Springsteen, Green Day and Ryan Adams his live shows are a force to be reckoned with and he has appeared on the Tonight show, Conan and Letterman over the years.
