ABOUT

My name is João, but call me John! I used to be a full time touring musician when I lived in Brazil, been in Toronto for some months now looking for opportunities. I have lots of experience in recording and producing songs, in both home studio and high end studio environments. Very professional and calm tempered, I like to get the job done with a smile on my face when I deal with easy going and hard working people.
