Endorse Diogo Santos
  1. Review by John C.

    What can I say? This is my first experience on Soundbetter and I couldn't be more pleasantly surprised. Diogo is a true professional. But most of all, such a great communicator! He lives on the other side of the planet from me and we had no issues communicating effectively. For quality-price, you will find no one better to do your drums than Diogo. He even made sure I was fine with the end product even re-doing sections to satisfy me. We will be working together again soon.

    Diogo played drums on 2 of my songs and wow, I am blown away by the musicianship. He was fast to understand the song and then went far beyond my expectations and sent me multiple great takes. Now I have too many great takes to choose from, but that is a good problem to have :D. His process of working was one that was comfortable, easy and extremely effective.
    In short, he brought the best out of the songs and I am definitely going to work with him again. Cheers!

    Played and recorded with Diogo for many years in Tears in Rain and many other side projects. He's always focused, listening and playing for the song. If you want a pro drummer that always searches for something fresh and original Diogo has to be your choice!

    Besides being an an absolutely wicked drummer, Diogo is one of the most conscientious, reliable, and organised musicians I've had the pleasure of working with. He has great ideas and can contribute a lot of worth beyond the scope of his instrument. I highly recommend Diogo for both professional and creative endeavours.

    He's a great drummer and a tremendous professional, always trying to make sure you're happy with the job he's offering you.
    I booked his services several times and always got excellent performances from him!

    Diogo is an amazing and dedicated musician, allways adding creativity to his drumming.
    We had the chance of working with him as a session drummer and he is really a great value for any project!

    Diogo played as drummer with me during 3 years. We made together two tours around Spain. We played in several festivals and clubs. Is the best drummer i have played with. And one of the best guys that i met in music bussines. Talented, kind, responsable and hard working, Diogo is always ready to give his best.

    Diogo is one of the most professional drumers I've played with. He really commits to projects and it's an easygoing person. He is also versatile and capable of adapting to almost any style. Really recommended!

    Diogo and I recorded an album together a few years ago and he's still the best drummer ever, either live or in the studio! Capable of reaching to the perfect sound in whatever music style he gets his hands on! Great personality, full of commitment to the goal!
