I'm a musician (mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar), producer and engineer based in São Paulo, Brazil. Yodel Studio is the place I work, my lovin home studio. And in this case I don't consider "home" as an amateur thing, but the most comfortable and inspiring place to work with my client's music.
I can produce your music, or I can just mix it or maybe record some mandolin, electric or acoustic guitar.
I also do vocal arrangement.
In this video you can see me playing and doing some vocals.
