Andre is wonderful to work with and a great keyboard and synth player with wicked ideas. Highly recommended!!
Andre has a fantastic sensibility when it comes to finding the right sound. His tone is great and not only that but he is a chord master and despite all his technical knowledge the feel he has and the vibe he brings is unparalleled. Fantastic keyboardist.
Andre is a total pro. He asked specific questions in order to make sure that he was providing me with the material I needed for my project and he was very fast in delivering. Highly recommend!
Andre is a master of tambre, and a pleasure to work with. He has a great understanding of vintage keys in the history of popular music, and will help you boost your sound to new heights. My go-to guy from now on.
Andre was awesome! I highly recommend. Came back with the perfect sound that I was looking for.
I like what André thinks and feels the music. He painted my song. He understood the sound in my head.
He has cool synths, a fat rich sound.
André is an awesome keyboardist that knows how to mix technique and creativity. I've worked with him on several independent artist projects here in Brazil, and I could see his talents in action.
