Hi everyone!
My name is Santiago Torres. I`m a Musician and Guitar Player based in Bogotá, Colombia with over 100 recording credits with many of Colombian Top Artists and a Latin Grammy award for participating on Colombian Top Artist Fonseca`s Latin Grammy winner Album in 2014. I work as a studio guitar player and I love to record guitar tracks from my studio "The Pick Room Studio" where I have different bunch of guitars, amplifiers, pedals, effects, microphones, audio equipment and stuff!

I have experience playing and recording different genres, such as Rock, Pop, Jazz, Blues, Country, Merengue, Bachata, Latin, and folk stuff and I`m able to record Acoustic Guitars, Electric Guitars, Nylon Guitars, so Ukelele and Mandolin as well.

I would love to contribute and record on your track and I guarantee you the best audio quality possible! If you`re interested on working with me, please contact me or let's get connected on my social network to see more about my work as a guitar player:
