Primary Instrument(s): Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar


Born in 1951 in Chicago, Illinois, Richard Bennett took an early interest in music, had his own record player at age 2, first record “Doggie In The Window” by Patti Page and was raised on a diet of pre-rock pop ie., Joni James, Frankie Laine, Les Baxter etc. as well as Randy Blake’s “Suppertime Frolic”, a program that aired nightly on WJJD radio featuring country music of the 1940’s and ‘50’s.
Moving to Phoenix, Arizona in 1960 he began studying guitar in 1962 with Forrest Skaggs. Through the 1950’s, Skaggs was Arizona’s ace western band leader having his own morning radio show, Saturday afternoon TV slot and “The Arizona Hayride”, a live Saturday night barn-dance show that hosted every major national country star who came to the Phoenix area. By way of Skaggs, Bennett met former student and Arizona Hayrider, Al Casey, then a top call studio musician in Hollywood.

Richard did his earliest record dates in Los Angeles during a summer vacation spent there with Casey in 1968. The following year, after graduating high school, he relocated to the west coast permanently and landed studio work quickly. Recording sessions ranging from Peggy Lee to Gene Vincent, The Ventures, Liberace, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Barbara Streisand, Sammy Davis Jr., Billy Joel and The Partridge Family to name but a few, soon followed. The spring of 1971 began a 17 year recording and touring relationship with Neil Diamond that yielded sixteen albums including “Hot August Night” and several co-written songs, “Forever In Blue Jeans” among them. By 1975 it also afforded Bennett the luxury of curtailing some of the less than rewarding three-session-a-day work.

At the urging of Steve Earle, Tony Brown and Jimmy Bowen, Richard moved to Nashville in 1985, having already played on many projects there since 1982. Earle’s landmark “Guitar Town” album, which Bennett co-produced and played guitar on, launched Richard as a producer and he’s since gone on to produce records for Emmylou Harris, Lost and Profound, Bill Miller, Marty Stuart, Jo-El Sonnier, Marty Brown, Becky Hobbs, The Sullivans, and Prairie Oyster. Additional record productions include Steve Earle’s comeback “I Feel Alright”, The Nashville Mandolin Ensemble’s “Plectrosonics” and “All The Rage”, Kim Richey’s self titled debut and two highly acclaimed albums by Phil Lee.

1994 began an association as guitarist with Mark Knopfler that continues to this day and includes the albums “Golden Heart”, “Sailing To Philadelphia”, “Ragpicker’s Dream” and "Shangri-La", three major world tours, and the motion picture soundtracks “Wag The Dog” and “Metroland”.

The year 2003 marked Richard Bennett’s 36th year of continued studio work that now spans five decades, a tour of the United Kingdom with British pop diva Cerys Matthews and a performance in Italy of material from his recently completed solo record, “Themes From A Rainy Decade”.

Guitarist - Producer

a few words about this discography.........
I have the tremendous good fortune to make my living as a studio musician and have done so since 1968, but until now had never compiled a list of the records I'd worked on. It seemed like a tall order as I'm not aware of access to musician's union session contracts online, and that's really where the complete information lies. So, I began with the All Music Guide web site and was honestly amazed by what came up. They do a very good job, so many things I'd forgotten and was surprised to see again, although a few corrections and much additional work needed to be done. For starters, another Richard Bennett, a wonderful guitar player primarily in the acoustic and bluegrass music field who's work had been credited along with mine, as well as entries for Richard Rodney Bennett have now been deleted from this web site's discography.

There were omissions that immediately came to mind, primarily my early work in Los Angeles of the late 60's through the 1970's, records that were no longer in print. By going through my own record collection I managed to fill several legal sheets with more albums I'd participated on. This by no means told the whole story though, as I'd been very cavalier about getting copies of so many of the records I'd played on. A typical musician.

The next stop was my file cabinet where I began pouring through date books going back to 1971. These too gave only a partial view as I seldom wrote the name of the artist with the booking. In those days I simply noted the appropriate date, time, studio and whoever had put the call out ie. the producer, arranger and/or contractor. Randomly however, I did enter about a third of the artists next to the session call. From those date books I compiled several more pages of artists who had been left out. I have included their names and the first year I'd recorded with them although no album title follows the date; sadly, I don't have these records in my collection. Like I said, typical.

This is far from a comprehensive discography, still it does offer a good look at a large picture and I have to admit being a little overwhelmed myself by the breadth and scope of it. You'll recognize artists who were and continue to be legends, some who have faded from collective memory and many who never made it that far. It is my honor and privilege to have worked with every one of them.
