In 2000 Chico began developing music projects with w super DJ/Producer/Remixer Richard Vission. This proved to be such a great fit that the two soon formed a partnership.

The actress had never recorded before but wanted to try her hand at it. Chico became a central player in Team Hilary and in the making of all her records and movie soundtrack work.

In 2003, Bennett founded the music production company Zero 1 Entertainment, Inc and Snaptime Music Publishing to develop new artist projects. Through Zero 1 Entertainment, Bennett has developed new artists Stranger Days, J1, Brig Feltus, and Kodi Hill. Always the musical chameleon, Chico has since worked with R&B Superstar Usher, Pop/Rock Princesses The Veronicas, Los Angeles Rap Artist Mann, and Mega Superstar Britney Spears to name a few.
