Chuck Prophet's latest album, "Night Surfer," is full of contradictory imagery.
Chuck Prophet Night Surfer Yep Roc Records Roots-rocking singer-songwriter Chuck Prophet's latest album, "Night Surfer," is full of contradictory imagery. There's that album title, for one, and just look at these song names: "Countrified Inner City Technological Man." "Felony Glamour." "Guilty as a Saint." And on "Laughing on the Inside," he also sings of "crying out loud." Thoughtful and intriguing imagery lures you in more than anything. And if you find yourself giving "Night Surfer" repeat listens, and chances are you will, it won't be because of the music as much as the desire to relive and rediscover the richness of Prophet's words.
