Bio

Evolved out of the secular band Suspicious Vehicle, members of Ten Cent Prophet formed their new band when they realized that they increasingly wanted to express their faith through their music. Unsatisfied with mainstream contemporary Christian musical fare, 10CP wanted to mesh their diverse musical styles with the Message of Jesus Christ in a fresh way.
Lead by front man and bassist, Luke Sims, the group explores the convergence of metal, rock, funk, synth pop and soul genres with the relevant expressions of Christ’s love. With in-your-face grooves and catchy hooks, this band delivers a compelling punch: the music is raw; the message is challenging. No milquetoast pabulum here.

Sims attacks his instrument with passion and finesse and delivers, holding nothing back.
Alan Willingham of A.R.M. once said, "Luke is a diamond in the rough."
Luke has been in bands with Paul Wickstrom of 8Stops Seven and Jack LaZor of PigFace.
The band Power Glove opened up for one of Luke's acts.

The thunderous pulse of the band is provided by Yasmin who played drums for Leon Patillo (Santana) and studied under Ralph Johnson of Earth, Wind and Fire, Gregg Bissonette, and Walfredo Reyes Jr.

Guitarist Justin experiments with uncharted melodic riffs, taking it just to the edge of the cliff and leaving the listener suspended there.
Justin is fearless in his experimentation and defies known musical rules, inspiring comments like, “Where does he come up with those licks?” and “What’s wrong with him!?”

The phenomenal keyboard team of Ozell and Eric weave a myriad of synth riffs, classical piano and audio samples into resonant landscapes which move in and out of the music.

Members of the band have performed at the Roxy, the Whiskey, and the Coach House in Southern California.

The band was voted "Best Public Disturbance Call" by the Marion County Sherriff's department. The deputies actually stood outside for twenty minutes to listen before knocking on the door to shut the band down.
