I am Bruno Duro, I have played and recorded for the greatest national singers in Portugal as well as international singers such as Rui Veloso, Anselmo Ralph, Aurea, Calema, Agir, Pedro Abrunhosa, D.A.M.A., among many others. I am available now on this site to create and record for you.
I am a creative person, versatile as well as methodical and quick to carry out the work. It's easy for me to understand the purpose that clients want for their music. As I play several instruments, like acoustic guitars, electric guitars, bass, Piano, Keys and drums, I can have a clearer view of the steps to follow until reaching the final result.
If you want me to produce your music, not only can I record guitars, bass, piano, keyboards, drums, some percussion instruments, drum programming, but I can also hire, if necessary, the best musicians I have in my country since many of them are my personal friends. If you need I can subcontract people to write songs, lyrics, sound technicians to mix and master. Basically I can be with you in the process from writing to releasing your music. If you want me to record just one instrument, I'm also entirely available and I'd be happy to. It's entirely up to you.

Interview with Bruno Duro
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I am working as a studio and live musician, producer and creating new live music projects in parallel.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: From what I researched, there are many competent, creative and experienced professionals, so I would be happy to recommend any one depending on the type of work the client needs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both serve music and musicians in different ways and with different advantages so I would say I choose both.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to strive to get the result that clients really want. Dedicate myself until I can complete the process of serving the customer and the music.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to do what I always wanted and being able to express myself through music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually try to find out if they have any musical references that can guide me in the direction they want for the song.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice is to be clear about what you want for the music so that we can be as objective as possible with the work. I would prefer the client to be quick to respond because normally I am very quick to execute and deliver the work. Speed is a natural thing for me, which does not make the job poorly done, on the contrary, it will always be done well and speed ends up just being a bonus.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing live at the age of 18 with a singer that I always wanted to play and since then I've been touring several times with the best artists in Portugal. At the same time I've been recording a lot in the studio and I've been producing as well.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I don't really know how to describe my style but I would say it's very connected to Pop, to the songs that are currently on the radio.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with the next person who is willing to hire my services. Creating new music motivates me regardless of the person's name or visibility.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Put the music first.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually record more pop music, although within pop there are many fusions of genres, electronic and acoustic music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Diria que o facto de ser versátil por ter tocado durante a minha vida vários tipos de música e o facto de tocar vários instrumentos o que descomplica e acelera a conclusão dos trabalhos.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: All my experience as a touring and session musician. I try to add not only my experience and knowledge but at the same time I try to be transparent and not impose my personal taste. I give priority to the customer's taste and vision, I try to be their hands in the whole process to enable them to get where they want.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Before starting any recording, I try to talk to clients to understand for sure what they want and it is from this conversation that I direct my work. From here, I sort everything I need to record, which saves me a lot of time. This initial conversation is essential not only for the work itself but also for getting to know the client a little better.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a studio at home in a single room where I capture and record. I found it much more personal and welcoming to work in the same room as the musicians or singers I record, but as I often play all the instruments in my productions, it ends up being more practical to have a single room. In addition, I have two acoustic drums, an electronic one, several guitars, basses and keyboards as well as accessories and microphones. Everything you need to record and finish a song.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I can't name anyone without putting aside a lot of good musicians and producers. I'd say I'm inspired by all kinds of well-made, well-played music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually play live and do recording sessions as a producer or musician.
