Ronaldo Rodrigues on SoundBetter

I'm an expert in vintage approaches of rock (1960's and 1970's - prog/psychedelic/fusion/heavy).

20 years of experience in music;12 official albums released (as session musician, including my own works with bands and solo). Member of two progressive rock bands - Caravela Escarlate and Arcpelago - and the hard/blues-rock band Blue Rumble. Some of my works were reviewed in specialized websites and magazines, such as PROG Magazine (UK), Empire Magazine (Germany), Progressive Music Planet (US), Poeira Zine (Brazil), among others. Arranger, composer, vocalist, and lyricist.

I can contribute with the arrangements to your song mainly if you desire a vintage-oriented sound. I can include a killer keyboard solo or sideral sound landscapes, using a large variety of organic tones.

Main influences: Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Thijs Van Leer (Focus), Dave Stewart (Hatfield and the North), Dave Sinclair (Caravan), Jon Lord, Jan Hammer, Patrick Moraz, Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep), Eddie Jobson, Brian Auger, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith, Ray Manzarek, Luis Paulo Simas (Módulo 1000), Elias Mizhrai (Veludo), Manito (Som Nosso de Cada Dia).

    Ronaldo is a world-class keyboardist with great taste; he completely understood what I was trying to do with my project. He's friendly, communicative, quick and provided me with plenty of stems to work with. I look forward to working with him again!

    Ronaldo worked very hard to play the parts that I felt the song needed. Very professional and a nice guy.

    Ronaldo is da bomb! He is an amazing keyboardist/musician/artist. If you want killer retro keyboard sounds, style, and musicianship, Ronaldo’s your guy. He delivered what he promised and so much more. Without knowing it, Ronaldo has now become my keyboardist – he’s just that good.
    I will be returning to him with many more tracks. He is also a super nice guy to boot -- extremely humble and kind to work with. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you, Ronaldo!

    Another great job done! Hired Ronaldo for another keyboard solo and it turned out absolutely fantastic. I will hire him again for sure.

    Great professional and really easy to work with. I Asked for a Jon Lord-ish type of Hammond solo for a song and the end result that was sent back to me was outstanding.

    Ronaldo is an accomplished keyboardist with great taste who totally understood the vibe I was going for with my track. He was friendly, quick, communicative and provided a number of takes for me to work with. I look forward to working with him again!

    Ronaldo is WORLD CLASS! This was my second time working with him, and he blew me away -- again! Working with him is like working with the masters of keyboard rock 'n' roll -- he just nails it every time. My advice, hire him while you still can because Ronaldo is going places; he's just that bloody good. Plus, he's an incredibly nice and helpful guy.
