Rhett Davies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rhett Davies (born 1949 in London) is an English record producer and engineer.

Davies' father was the trumpet player Ray Davies. Davies became a studio engineer at Island Records in the early 1970s. His first recording session was for Brian Eno's 1974 album Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy). Davies and Eno worked together on several subsequent projects and made innovations in studio recording techniques, especially regarding tape loops and drum machines. He produced many artists of the 1970s and 1980s, and largely retired from production work in the 1990s, although he worked with Bryan Ferry on As Time Goes By (1999), Dylanesque (2007), Olympia (co-producer, 2010) and Avonmore (2014).
