Josh Rouse
and Chuck Prophet
@The Heights Theatre
Houston, TX
Friday 1/17/2020 8:00PM

You don’t have to work hard to enjoy Rouse’s music. His songs present themselves to you with an open heart, an innate intelligence and an absolute lack of pretension. They are clear-eyed, empathetic and penetrating. Without pandering, they seek to satisfy both your ear and your understanding. The verses draw you in with telling detail, both musical and thematic, and the choruses lift and deliver. They resolve without seeming overly tidy or pat.

Nebraska native Rouse says he had an itinerant upbringing and eventually landed in Nashville where he recorded his debut Dressed Like Nebraska (1998). The album’s acclaim led to tours with Aimee Mann, Mark Etzel and the late Vic Chestnut. The followup- Home (2000)—yielded the song “Directions” which Cameron Crowe used in his film Vanilla Sky.

Through his live performances with the Mission Express and solo, Chuck Prophet has developed a reputation as an outstanding, entertaining live act and built a loyal fanbase from Albuquerque to Stockholm. His live solo performances offer fans the opportunity to experience his songs
from a unique perspective.
