Chuck Prophet spreads the word on U.S. tour

Text

If nothing else, Chuck Prophet is one intense guy. Witness some information that can be gleaned from a quick once-over his website:

* He joined his first band, Green on Red, spending eight years recording albums and touring the U.S....before turning 20.

* He leapt from one rooftop to another, high up above the streets of San Francisco, which Prophet calls his hometown, and accidentally crashed through a glass skylight, falling three stories down onto a concrete floor. All to impress a girl.

* He lost his virginity at fourteen. In a mental hospital.

* He's been written about by "The New York Times" and Stephen King.

A psychotherapist's dream of a case study, the 43-year-old Americana-tinged singer songwriter is kicking off his nation-wide, 26-date tour on Oct. 21 in his favorite Bay Area city, San Francisco. As previously reported, Prophet's latest album, Soap and Water, is to be released on Oct. 2.
