Artist Details

Bernard Edwards

Bernard Edwards' supple, big-bottom basslines powered platinum hits by Chic, the '70s dance/pop band that he co-founded with guitarist/songwriter/producer Nile Rodgers. The group scored three gold singles and one platinum single including two number one pop/R&B singles, "Le Freak" and "Good Times"; two platinum albums, C'est Chic and Risque; and one gold album, Chic. A Chic live recording, Live at the Budokan, was released February 23, 1999, through Rodgers' Sumthing Distribution. The bassist co-wrote and produced all of Chic's records as well as those the duo produced for Diana Ross, Sister Sledge, and others. Edwards later produced and played in '80s supergroup Power Station ("Some Like It Hot"); produced ABC's "When Smokey Sings," Ross' "Telephone," and Rod Stewart; and played bass on the Rodgers-produced Madonna LP Like a Virgin and Jody Watley's "Don't You Want Me."
