    Second time working with João. And it won't be the last! My demo went from sloppy and boring, to a fun, creative, tight, virtuoso experience that I never thought my music was capable of. Easy to work with and doesn't stop working on your music until you're satisfied. João is now my go-to guy. And I consider myself very lucky to be able to work with him! You will too!
