Looking somewhat like Dracula’s nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown Hinson translates that vibe to  his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, this red-necked crooner gained regional popularity with a self-produced television show in 1992 and soon was touring nationwide, wowing audiences with his outrageous and campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone. Hinson’s most recent CD release,  “Target Practice”, melds weepy twang and searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone-bad and the dark side of the honky-tonk lifestyle.  Raucous, theatrical and over-the-top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set anymore!

Unknown Hinson is a winner in the 2009 Independent Music Awards for his entry track “Torture Town” from the album “Target Practice”.

UNKNOWN HINSON is a featured artist of the month –

Rockabilly Magazine named Unknown Hinson as their “Find of the Year”  for 2009.

Billy Bob Thornton names Unknown as “one of my favorite songwriters and a genius picker”. Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons) labels Unknown as a “guitar maniac (and funny as hell to boot!)” Hank3  has Unknown’s face tattooed on his bicep!

Unknown is also gaining notoriety (and fans) as the voice of lead character “Early Cuyler” in the popular show from Cartoon Network – “The Squidbillies”. The first two seasons were so well-received that an immediate green light was given to two more seasons. Check website for dates and time slots.
