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

Davies' father was trumpet player Ray Davies (no relation to Ray Davies of The Kinks). Davies became a studio engineer at Island Records studios in the early 1970s, and his first session was the recording process for Brian Eno's album, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy). Davies and Eno worked together on several further projects and made innovations in studio recording techniques, especially regarding tape loops and drum machines. He went on to produce many artists of the 1970s and 1980s, but largely retired from production work in the 1990s, although he continued to work with Bryan Ferry, e.g. on Dylanesque (2007), Olympia (co-producer, 2010) and Avonmore (2014).


Davies produced and/or engineered the following albums:
