Session Guitarist / Arranger

JP Mourão on SoundBetter

More than 20 years of studio experience, having played on hundreds of tracks recorded both in my native Brazil and in the US. Doing remote sessions since relocating to LA in 2010. My mission is to provide tracks of the utmost quality, always respecting and honoring the artists' vision.

I'm a session musician, arranger, and producer. Since relocating from Sao Paulo, I've collaborated and recorded with artists such as Selena Gomez, Snoop Dogg, Macy Gray, Carlos Vives, Keiko Matsui, Aloe Blacc, Lincoln Brewster, Pato Banton, Deborah Holland, Kawehi, Rebecca Crews, Amanda Brecker, and companies like Disney, Coca-Cola, FIFA, NBA, Roland. I've worked with producers such as multiplatinum production team Rock Mafia, Grammy-winning producers such as Mario C, Bruce Sugar, Jesse Harris, Ross Hogarth, and shared the studio with legendary LA session players in many occasions.
I've worked with various composers on productions for Netflix, Lifetime, and many other outlets, always bringing a unique palette of sounds to the productions, due to the big collection of stringed instruments I own, which include many Brazilian folk instruments.
I've always strived to be as versatile as possible on the guitar, covering all popular music genres as well as Brazilian styles. I'm a good sight-reader.
My goal is to perform in a variety of styles confidently and also bring my unique musical background and musicianship to every phase of the music-making process, serving the music and contributing to enhance my client's vision and art.
