Profile Bill Chinnock, also referred to as Billy Chinnock, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was a prominent member of the Jersey Shore music scene during the late 1960s, leading bands that included future members of the E Street Band. In 1987 he won an Emmy Award after his song, “Somewhere in the Night” was used as the theme on Search for Tomorrow. “Hold On To Love”, a duet he recorded with Roberta Flack was also featured as a theme song on Guiding Light. 

In 1991 Chinnock returned to Maine and the following year released Out On The Borderline on his own label, East Coast Records. Among the guest musicians was Michael Hossack of The Doobie Brothers who also co-wrote the song “Take This Heart of Mine”. In 1988 Backstreets, a Springsteen fanzine, reported that Chinnock had actually joined the Doobie Brothers as a replacement for Michael McDonald ! In 1992 Chinnock, Danny Federici and Garry Tallent also attempted to revive the Downtown Tangiers Band and recorded some sessions but nothing has been released to date. This is a highly sought after AOR cd while Chinnock is a well known artist an has been associated with Bruce Springsteen since the 1960s.

This is one of Bill’s best albums and a return to his roots. Recorded in California, Nashville & Boston, it features musicians from Muscle Shoals ( Chalmers Davis on kbds ) as well as long-time band mate Harry King, Roger Cox… Mike Hossach on drums on ” Take This Heart Of Mine “.
