Chet Bennett

Profile:
Producer, mastering and recording engineer from Providence, Rhode Island. Started his career as a guitarist, bassist and back-up singer for some of the early rock stars such as Roy Orbison, Freddie Cannon and Kini Lester.

In 1969 Chet became involved with Muscle Shoals Sound by cutting demos and discs for them. That same year Chet became a writer for Muscle Shoals Sound Pub [BMI] and Formular Music [ASCAP] with his friend Terry Woodford who headed up those companies.

1975 Chet was inducted into Florida's Country Hall of Fame as the number one studio and producer of the year. In the summer of 1976, Chet took on the challenge of designing, building, equipping, and producing/engineering the new Boblo Records in Brunswick, Georgia for his old friend Bobby Smith, where he first began doing sessions in 1963 at Bobby's studio in Macon, Georgia. It was there that Chet met the great Otis Redding..."I now know my calling, after I heard Otis sing." So Chet returned the favor to his mentor and gave Bobby two chart records in the first two attempts, "Mr. Boogie Man" and "Feel Like Being Funky," by Avalanche. Then he came up with Jason Willis' "Long Distance Runner" and recorded the late great Jimmy Orion Ellis.

In the early 80's Chet moved on to CBS records where he cut records for Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson to Willie Nelson and the rest of the CBS roster. Recently, Chet was co-owner of AANCO entertainment group/Manitou Records where he co-produced Eddie Three Eagles, a two-time #1 seller of Native American Music worldwide. Today, Chet heads up "Muscle Shoulders," his new CD label, which has a roster of new and old releases.
