José Maradei on SoundBetter

Session pianist/keyboardist based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have spent recording and performing in the rock/pop industry.

Hi! My Name is José Maradei, I've been producing music for 15 years.
I offer my services as a music producer, session pianist, recording and mixing engineer.

I am full-time musician based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'd be thrilled to record any keys parts you're looking for, be it acoustic piano, hammond B3 or any other organic sounds as well as any synthesizers and quirky textures if that's what you need. I can also do vocals for you. I can sing BGV or lead if needed. I have a home studio with everything that it needs to get you great sounding tracks.

I can mix your track for you or do full-on production if that's what you need. The sample medley is a few songs that I did all the steps for here at my studio.

    Jose is an excellent piano player, he is a SUPER kind and sweet person, it is a pleasure to work with him. He recorded keyboards and synths on tracks I've produced with awesome results, also he worked in the pre-production of some of them and he delivered all of the tracks and edits with perfection.
    I highly recommend his services!!!
