Creating some fresh funky, soulful vibes
I´m a session guitarist, producer and beatmaker with a musical background in Hip Hop, R&B Soul, Jazz and Brazillian music, who loves to create sounds and vibes.
When I was 9 years old I got my first guitar from my parents and from that point my life has always been music.
Some time later,after going to music college, I started to get more and more involved with the world of music production.
I usually produce songs to songwriters and artists, taking an idea and helping them to develop from that point on.
Making beats, creating sounds and vibes, digging for soulful samples, layering keys,synths and tracking guitars in different styles, all these makes part of my work process.
