With over 10 years professional experience, Samuel da Silva is a saxophonist, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Currently connected to some of the most influential soul, funk, R&B and Hip-Hop artists in Portugal, he's been performing since 2013 with "The Groovelvets" (soul singer Marta Ren's support band) and also "Expensive Soul" for the past 5 years, having recorded the album "A Arte das Musas" in 2019. Throughout his career, he has also toured/recorded with several other artists/bands and is currently working on his latest project, "Two-Time Winners".Samuel is available to record woodwinds (saxophones, clarinet and flute) and also to write horn section arrangements. He specializes in Soul, Funk and R&B but can adapt to most genres easily. Working formats include several possibilities but a lead sheet/chart would be preferable.
