Chin goes beyond the meaning of a triple threat; an outstanding musician, world-class producer and one of Canada’s finest songwriters. But that is not enough for Chin. Taking his strengths to the stage, he is a dynamic performer that feels most comfortable performing music for the people.

Born in India, Chin was raised in Toronto where he would find his future bass is base band mates and start a roaring succession of hit songs, Junos, and other awards and accolades. A move to the west coast, resulted in Chin’s emergence a mentor and figurehead for many young musicians in the lower mainland of BC. Chin has been instrumental in uniting the urban music community through his strong presence at his own “Thursday Night Dynomite” performances, hosting The Beat 94.5FM’s Bootcamp and the Media Club Mondays. Chin uses this presence in the community to lend a hand by being a board member for the Songwriter’s Association of Canada and a passionate spokesperson for music therapy.

While maintaining his performing and community efforts, Chin released his debut solo album “Day Dreaming.” A 14 track fusion of urban pop waterfront sounds co-produced by David Kershaw of Sarah McLaughlan fame. The single “Anything” peaked at #11 on the CHR.

Chin has kept more than active in the larger music community through his songwriting and production. Chin is always adding more names to his already lengthy list of credits. Chin has written tracks for or with Macy Gray, Curtis Richardson, Res, Doc, Moka Only, Sweat Shop Union, In Essence, Ben Mink (of KD Lang fame), Colin James, David 'Genie in a Bottle' Frank, Christopher Ward, Liz Rodriguez, Shawn Smith, Tom Wilson, Craig Northey, Maple Music recording artist Ridley Bent and Andy Kim. Chin has also written and recorded with Mike Mangini, Canadian rapper/singer Snow and remixed the track "Pinch Me" for The Barenaked Ladies

Chin is the first call for a number of producers seeking both his programming and musicianship as a songwriter, a session player and producer. Chin’s recent productions include Hot Hot Heat (acoustic collection), Shawn Smith “Deeper Sense of Soul” charting on Canadian AC, upcoming releases Greg Vitale, Domino Click and maple music recording artist Ridley Bent.

Currently Chin is committed to completing a new solo album inspired by relentless positivity, optimism and belief in the people and powers that are his muse in all aspects.

The music will save us all.
