Rodrigo Louraço on SoundBetter

I am a musician from Portugal and i play several intruments like guitar,bass and piano. Im 39 years old and i love to make and produce music. For me a music album is a piece of art and it shouldnt be a copy of another album. Above all i apreciate original material no matter the style of music. I always look foward to work with diferent people.

I have been playing guitar for 23 years and for me is wonderfull to be able to do it everyday. Love to make and paticipate on records. I think nowadays is easier to make records because of all the technology and i m not against that!
For me music is artwork, a form of expression, when the music is good there seems to be a recognition by almost everyone.
I want to make as much music as i can and work with diferent people , people that enjoy music and want to make they´re own.

    Rodrigo made a customized prog-metal song the way I like it. Great guitar skills and the willing to make the song 'till I'm satisfied has made him exactly the songwriter I was looking for.

    Rodrigo is one of those rare gems who offer professional results without an ego. Precision, quality, affordability and reliability are his top traits. We will keep him as one of our main remote session guitarists for our punk/rock/metal productions. He delivered what he promised and gave us plenty of options. 5 stars well deserved.
