Guilherme Kafé on SoundBetter

Looking for a non obvious approach for popular songs? I'm your guy. I play multiple string instruments such as acoustic nylon guitar (my speciality),cavaquinho, electric bass and electric guitar. I master multiple languages of brazilian and indie/alternative music and like to create non-obvious rythmic/melodic lines on my productions

I'm a producer/songwriter and session musician based on São Paulo, Brazil. I'm known by recording and touring with many artists of a singers/songwriters scene from São Paulo.
I'm also a solo artist and I've released the album "Eu sou o tipo de pessoa que pode transformar tudo em sua casa" (2019) and 3 EPs – Desayuno (2014), Kafé com Trem (2015) and Oscuro (2021).

I can offer you a very creative vision for your tracks and can also work on specific genre standards. We set this up together in a very clear and fast communication. I have a delicated tenor voice (and can sing in Portuguese, Spanish, English) and I'm a multi-instrumentalist, so you can hire me to sing or play the instruments listed above.

And, at last but not least, I love to produce songs from scratch to very fine and fresh sounding phonogram. I understand the role of the producer as tool to ease the songwriter's life, helping to translate her or his desires and needs into great music. Together, we'll look at your song from different perspectives until we understand what it needs to tell it's particular story.

    Everything from communication, his playing, the sound of the recording, everything was on a different level, and inspiring to me.
    It was a pleasure working with him, and will definitely work with him again.

    Un formidable musicien: chanteur, arrangeur, orchestrateur ... il joue la guitare avec l'exactitude rythmique du genre: pour Zeze (cette actrice que je découvrai grâce à Carlos Diegues dans Xica da Silva!) . Guilherme a su donner à l'épisode central quelque chose de Charlie Chaplin.

    I had a feeling Kafé would be the perfect choice for this song.
    Through his beautiful guitar-arrangments he took my demo to a whole new level. He listened and tried out my idéas but all in all I didn ´t have to do much more than sit back and get goosebumps.
    It can be tricky working togeher remotely, even more so when more than two parts are involved as in this project, but everything was smooth and creativity was bouncing back and forth at a high level.
    Highly recommended!

    Guilherme is a great, musician and producer. It was super easy to mix his job, because he really knows how to aproach the mixer engineer about the especific expectations relative to the song. What a plesure!

    See you in next song!

    A young multi-talented paulistano. You can relay on him: he will realize excellent recording with numerous options. Easy contact and immediate involment in the music = remote but close.
    Si vous cherchez un vrai musicien et vraiment du Brésil, adressez-vous à Guilherme: il vous proposera plusieurs options et iras de toute façon directement à la source puisque cette musique ne s'imite pas.

    Guiherme understood from the beginning what I wanted for the song and he did it with perfection. The guitars are excellent! I'm very glad to choose him and I'm looking forward to work with him again. Really, great job! :)

    Guilherme Kafé is one of the most creative cats I know! Kafé does it all, from composition to production. On top of it all, he plays a mean acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass and sings like he was born to do it.
    But you don't have to believe my words, just listen to the recordings and you'll know what I'm taking about =)
