Let's spice up your recordings with memorable and tasty guitar leads! I will record all kind of guitars (Electric [Lead & Rhythm], Acoustic & Classical) for your song regardless the genre. I specialize in Heavy music, although over the years I've worked with all sort of artists from different music genres, contributing for several releases worldwide, notably Kitt Wakeley's #1 Billboard chart topping album "Symphony of Sinners and Saints".

I've been playing guitar and composing music for more than 10 years. You can hear my composition and guitar work in my solo project (Check my solo album 'STONESUN') and in my main band 'Enblood'. I'm also currently playing guitar for other projects such as Theriomorphic, Adamantine and Tokyo Wanderer.

Besides my guitar skills I also record Bass Guitar (Played Bass on my solo record 'STONESUN'), write lyrics (Wrote the lyrics for Enblood's debut record 'Cast To Exile') and program drums.

I will always work close together with you and make sure the end result is the absolute best according to YOUR view.

    João is a pleasure to work with. His guitar and creative skills are second to none. He took what we had and brought it to the next level while taking all the feedback we have been providing him and incorporating it in. He is not just a guitar player but someone you can collaborate with. Looking forward to working with João on many other songs.

    As an artist your taste is sometimes more important than your technique. João has both!

    This is my sixth time working with João, and I have never sent a single track back for revision. He just nails it first time, every time, and blows it out of the water! Could not be happier with the results!
