The Unknown Hinson is a guitar-playing American actor and singer. He’s known for his white-trash persona, but also for his dark and theatrical comedic timbre. His music often evokes elements of the 1950s-’60s country-western scene.
He has been featured in movies and TV shows such as The Social Network, The Social Network, and Squidbillies. Despite his fame, he maintains a low-key personal life. But he is an active social media user, having several social accounts. In fact, his cult following has grown in recent months. And he’s also been a very prolific poster on Instagram.
As an actor, Baker first appeared on television as the voice of Early Cuyler on the Adult Swim cartoon series Squidbillies. Though he played the role for a number of seasons, he was fired from the show in 2020 for making inappropriate comments about the Black Lives Matter movement. A new actor will take on the role in the upcoming season.
Besides performing live, Baker has also released a series of albums as Unknown Hinson. In the early 2000s, he signed to Capitol Records Nashville. It was during that period that Unknown gained a wider audience. While touring, he performed in front of large crowds and received positive reviews from fans. He has also shared the stage with some notable country artists, such as Ed King and Hank3.
Baker’s other popular project is a comedy series he created and starred in, called The Wild Wild South. This series ran on the public access television station in Charlotte, North Carolina, and included sketches with his co-star Don Swan. After Swan’s death, the character of Unknown continued to perform live.
The show was a success, receiving a Creative Loafing Charlotte “Best of” poll four years in a row. During the show, Stuart Baker’s wife Margo was a manager. One of the episodes featured a cameo by Unknown Hinson’s voice.
In addition to his voice work, he has also played the lead guitar in several band projects. He has toured the country, playing with a variety of rockabilly and country artists, including Hank3, Rev. Horton Heat, and Tom Petty.
Unknown has also been a fan of the country-western genre, composing songs that comment on the dark side of the redneck lifestyle. His latest CD blends weepy twang with a freewheeling tone. At the beginning of the decade, he was touring across the US. Today, he is available on streaming services like Spotify.
Unknown Hinson has a net worth of several million dollars. Most of his earnings have come from Yeezy sneakers, but he also makes a lot of money off his touring schedule. Although his career hasn’t been as successful as some other artists, he is still a well-known figure. He also has a high social presence on Facebook and Twitter. Some of his most famous followers include Alex Harris and BTS.
