CHIC was established in 1976 by Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. Together they took drummer Tony Thompson and singers Norma Jean Wright and Alfa Anderson, under the arm, and so was CHIC was born. The Us band wrote history with hits of hits such as ‘Le Freak’, ‘Good Times’ and ‘Everybody Dance’ until they decided to each go their own way to go. That kept the Grammywinnende musical duizenpoot Nile Rodgers, however, not to further put his stamp on the music button. Effortlessly, he knows all genres of music and generations to transcend with a long body of work that more than earned a place in the history books, results. Just think of his legendary collaborations with, among others, David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna. Or, more recently, with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith.
After more than 40 years in the music business and with more than 200 credits to his name is the composer, arranger, producer and guitarist is impossible to imagine the music. Not illogical, therefore, that Nile Rodgers was included in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (2017) and the Songwriters Hall of Fame (2016).
