Chester Bennington answered the phone on March 20th, 1999, at his home in Phoenix. The guy on the other end of the line, Jeff Blue, vice president of A&R at Zomba music in Los Angeles, came straight to the point: “I’m going to give you your big break. I have a great band for yo… 44 showcases and 4 years later, he never stopped.”

Jeff discovered me as a drummer in a failing rock band but somehow saw my talent. He put me in two other bands that had been signed by major labels, got me my visa so I could work in the United States, supporting my vision from start to finish. Now I’m touring the world, signed to Taylor Swift, and opening up to crowds of 50,000 people every night with country megastars like Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line
– David Rehmann- Taylor Swift, Tyler Rich
I had given up on music and lost my first record deal. Jeff somehow found me after I moved back home to Ohio, and convinced me to give music a second chance. He believed in me when no one else would, and is responsible for my deal with Epic, which gave me my number one Grammy Award winning song “I try”
– Macy Gray
Jeff is the guy you want by your side. He signed me to my first major on Warner Bros Records and when things got tough he was there all the time… at the label, in the studio, and as a friend… wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t believed in me.
– DJ Ashba- Guns and Roses, Mötley Crue
Jeff is one crazy motherfu%@er, but he definitely knows what he is doing.
– Fred Durst- Limp Bizkit
Jeff discovered me backstage at a Kiss concert. He stuck me in my first band and put me on a Platinum Soundtrack.
– Jeff Gutt – Stone Temple Pilots
Jeff is one of those guys that believes in the under dog and sees the vision no one else can, no matter the genre He gave me my first big break, and I’ve never stopped touring the world. HE never stops fighting for his artists.
– Jeremy Ruzumna- Fitz and the Tantrums
“Jeff excels in artist development, songwriting and cutting edge production. He has an amazing ability to stay ahead of the curve and continuously take music to new heights. Jeff signed my band Emphatic to Atlantic Records and he also co wrote several songs on our major label debut. My experience working with Jeff was fun, creative and just as every artist wants, we got results”.
– Justin McCain (Atlantic records recording artist/Emphatic)
