|Texas rock artist Chet Daniels completed his first solo album at SugarHill Recording Studios February 2004. Chief Engineer Andy Bradley recorded, mixed and co-produced the project with Daniels. The songs were tracked in Studios A and B and mixed in Studio C.
The CD entitled "Back from Blue Collection" features Robbie Parrish on drums, Anthony Sapp on bass, Marie English on keyboards and Brian Thomas on steel guitar and dobro.
Daniels played guitar with a number of bands including Kevin Black and toured Europe and Japan. He began his relationship with engineer and producer Andy Bradley nearly twenty years ago while playing with his band, "The President." He returned to Europe in July 2004 to perform at two festivals.
|Chet began playing guitar at the age of five, taking lessons from Charles Webb, then from Dan Delsorodo from Paul Whitings Orchestra. He played guitar in bands throughout Junior High and High School on the north side of Houston, Texas. After graduation, he began playing professionally around local bar venues with the band "The President." They wrote and played originals and copy music at all the top bars in the area, as well as performing for live radio on KPFT in Houston, and several opening act gigs. "The President" recorded several songs after meeting Andy Bradley while he was at ACA Recording Studios.
From there, Chet signed with Challenge Records, Houston, where he teamed up with Kay Reeves, another Challenge artist. They were managed by Tommy Devito of "Four Seasons" fame. They performed a short stint in Vegas and Reno, Neveda and returned home to Houston.
The late 80's found Chet in the lead vocal and lead guitarist position of a club touring rock band called "The Edge." There again, he played a number of opening acts.
In 1998, he began to write again and has developed his own style of original music. With the help of longtime friend, Andy Bradley and SugarHill Recording Studios, Andy and Chet have recruited a team of top local musicians, produced and recorded the first ten songs of many.
