Chet is in high demand to create, compose and produce for TV and film soundtracks, as well as placing songs with other artists.

When Chet began this new website, he wanted to create a unique web experience for his visitors. First, he wanted current music, news, reviews and insights available to the people visiting the site. At the same time, he wanted the site to be like a historical scrapbook with old pictures, stories and information. So, as the site progresses, more and more historical data, music, pictures and stories will be added to make this site more and more like a scrapbook. So, as the site grows, it will become more insightful and fun to explore.

So, to those who are discovering Chet for the first time, we are happy to be able to introduce people to him. On top of those skills listed above, Chet is a long-time ASCAP publisher and CCO-Founder of Magic Garage Productions, Magic Garage Music (ASCAP) and Magic Garage Records.

Chet has a unique story.....then, again, he is like a lot of other singer-songwriters and composers world-wide (past-present-and-future), who are inspired by the world around them and create music, songs, stories, films, photographs of what they see and share them with others. So, this site is not so much just about Chet, as it is about people around the world who are also artists "like" Chet.

Chet was inducted into The Kansas Music Hall Of Fame in 2008, joining Pat Matheny, Martina McBride, Kansas, Melissa Etheridge and other fine musical artists.
