    I tasked Joao with tracking 9 guitar solos and several leads for a Technical Death Metal project of mine. Not only did he complete over 30 minutes worth of work in a matter of a few days, but he also did an incredible job! I couldn't be happier(: Thank you so much, I look forward to working with you once again!!!

    João is a great pleasure to work with and he is the only guy I work with as far as guitar tracks go. 100% would recommend working with him.

  10. Review by João Bento

    Amazing work! I didn't expect so much passion for what I supposed was a quick project, the quality of a custom arrangement which I never expected blew all of my expectations. And on top of all of that he's gorgeous, what I wouldn't give to meet the man himself...
