LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/12/13 -- Long before he launched his extraordinarily eclectic career as an award-winning multi-platinum producer, Dito Godwin was a working guitarist in NYC. His first band opened for The Blues Project (with future Blood, Sweat & Tears founder Al Kooper) and The House did a brief tour with Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath.
In addition to No Doubt's self-titled 1992 debut, Dito has helmed projects for Motley Crue, former KISS members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, Jack Russell and Great White and the late Warrant frontman Jani Lane. In the country music realm, he worked on projects featuring the legendary Charley Pride and former American Idol contestant Kristy Lee Cook -- and at one point represented the interests of songwriter Susan Gibson, writer of the Dixie Chicks' hit "Wide Open Spaces."
He often works with his son, prominent L.A. guitarist Bernie Godwin, who co-wrote the Dito-produced title track "My Name Is Bruce" from Bruce Campbell's 2007 comedy/horror film.
Dito recently produced recordings for two dynamic rising L.A.-based indie artists, rock/soul singer/songwriter Rolan Bolan -- son of late glam-rock legend Marc Bolan and Grammy-winning Motown singer and composer Gloria Jones -- and horror-rocker Characula.
In Europe, Dito is working with the heavy-metal band Phonomik and pop/rock outfit Substereo, who recently scored a single that reached #11 on the Danish iTunes chart.
He represents Dr. Ward Bond (The Roc Doc), creator/host of the Houston-based heavy metal television show "Guitar Asylum"; Dito will soon be producing his show in Europe. Dito is also producing a project for singer/songwriter/bassist Gregg Sutton, who has played with Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Lone Justice and U2 and written songs recorded by Percy Sledge, Joe Cocker and Billy Ray Cyrus.
On the literary side, Dito is a Senior Contributing Editor for Heavy, a Melbourne, Australia-based music magazine, and he is currently planning to write a memoir of his life in music that will double as an educational textbook about the music industry. He has taught over the years at UCLA, University of Sound Arts, L.A. City College and Southern Oregon University.
