Chicago Vin Earnshaw / Bio

Chicago Vin Earnshaw is the bad-ass bass player in Greg Allen’s Fringe Religion. He is a singer/songwriter in his own right, a veteran East Coast side-man and an actor who has appeared in stage, TV and film productions. Chicago Vin began his career in Boston with The Luther Johnson Chicago Blues Band. In the late 70’s, he formed The Delinquents, recording the EP, “It Is What It Ain’t” before joining Jack Smith & The Rockabilly Planets. With them he recorded two CDs on Ruckus and Flying Fish/Rounder Records featuring legendary twang-master Jerry Miller (J. Geils/ Ellen Jewel). When Jack Smith retired from the music business in 1990, Chicago Vin joined Loaded Dice (the former backup band for Louisiana harmonica legend Lazy Lester) recording their CD “Loaded Dice” for School Kids Records in 1991. He joined the group Greg Allen had formed with Jerry Nolan (NY Dolls / Heartbreakers) playing bass and guitar on what would prove to be Jerry’s last session. In 2001, he joined The Greg Allen Group in NYC, recording the CD, “Just for You” featuring Johnny Rao (David Johansen/ Helen Schneider) on guitar. He has also had the occasion to back such notable musicians as Sonny Burgess & Paul Burlison, James Montgomery, Lazy Lester, Delta Bluesman CeDell Davis, Hubert Sumlin, & Sleepy La Beef. Vin fronts the Chicago Vin coalition where he plays "raw, pounding garage music." For more information about Chicago Vin visit www.chicagovin.com
