Marco Santos on SoundBetter

Keyboardist/Pianist with jazz studies, especialized in new and modern sounds like R&B and Neo-Soul.

Keyboardist, Pianist, Composer & Producer based in Portugal. I have a degree in jazz piano and a masters in music education.
Profesionally i've been playing with a lot of bands and artists over the years, and have toured all around the country.
I'm constantly doing studio works, either in professional studios or in my home studio where i make my own productions, music and recordings for others as well.
I love ALL kinds of music and am capable of reproducing and create almost everything.
My favourite genres are fresh and actual music like R&B, Neo-Soul, Funk/Jazz Fusion,...
I'm very well know for my complex harmonies and improvised solos.
I prefer to work with hardware sounds since i have very good gear (Nord Stage 3, Rhodes Mk2, Juno 106, Moog Sub 37, Prophet 6, Strymon Blue Sky), recorded with my Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 3rd.
