Among music legends, Nile Rodgers amplifies his legacy as a multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music.
As the co-founder of CHIC and the newly elected Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (2017) and the Songwriters Hall of Fame (2016).
Most recently, he was appointed as the first ever Chief Creative Advisor for the legendary Abbey Road Studios to cap off a year that has included "festival best" performances at both Glastonbury and Coachella that resulted in the BBC nominating the band for the BBC Music Awards as "Best Live Performance Of 2017." The LA Times said "Nile Rodgers influence stretches all over Coachella, beaming the sound of a better future."
His work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Madonna have sold more than 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide. His innovative, trend-setting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure, and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.
