    João is a phenomenal talent who has done amazing work on all my songs - which is quite something as every song we've worked on has been completely different. From Rockabilly to New Age to Reggae and whatever comes after this I have no doubt that he will continue to shine and make my songs pop! And the great thing is that his work is matched by his very positive attitude and being a pleasure to work with. Can't wait for the next song!

    João performed another stellar job for us. He provided different versions for us so the difficult part was choosing out of several great sounding melodies and solos :)

    This is my second job with João and he continues to amaze and delight me with his fantastic guitar/bass work. This song was completely different from the last, but he nailed them both to the nth degree, showing his great flexibility, range, sensitivity, and talent. Plus, he's an absolute delight to work with. João is always polite, encouraging, and timely in his communications. If you're looking for a guitarist who will take your song to the next level, go with João!
