San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Chuck Prophet first made a name for himself in the '80s as the young guitarist in L.A.'s Green on Red. Since then, he's released a string of bluesy, critically praised roots-rock albums, each drawing on a sound that brings to mind the likes of Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. Click the link above to hear Prophet perform songs from his new CD, Soap and Water, live in concert from WXPN and Wiggins Park in Philadelphia on July 11, 2008.

The latest installment in WXPN's annual XPoNential Music Festival offered a broad cross-section of modern music, from beloved veterans (Alejandro Escovedo, Dar Williams) to up-and-comers (The Redwalls, The War on Drugs), with a headlining performance by critically acclaimed English singer-songwriter Beth Orton.
