Californian alt-rock hero Chuck Prophet returns to Glasgow, for his first ever duo show with his wife and co-conspirator, Stephanie Finch this September. The tour features Chuck and Stephanie playing songs on acoustic and with keyboard with tracks from each others albums spanning over twenty years digging deep into some tunes you haven’t heard for awhile. They will be joined by friend and native New Yorker Jesse Malin whom will also be playing a full set with his keyboardist. Jesse has toured the UK for the last 20 + years too with a rich musical history. Chuck and Jesse will be closing out the night together on stage.

Chuck Prophet has been on the scene since his days with Americana pioneers Green on Red from 1984 to 1992 whom he recorded seven albums with. Chuck has gone on to have a successful solo career with over twelve albums under his belt and 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.

This will be a rare time to catch him as a duo setting.

“the swagger and innocence of early Springsteen and the demi-monde storytelling of early Lou Reed.” MOJO

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.
