Your Friend Esteves

since 2019

Your Friend Esteves is the synthwave music project led by João. It’s the combined love of music and technology, and bringing powerful songs through synths and drum machines. 

After years as a drummer for various bands João took a stab at starting a project based only in electronic instruments. Your Friend Esteves was born. 

João grew up playing piano and organ, and in teenage years the classical and electric guitar. The drums came later and ended up being where he excelled. He has always loved making music and the passion for electronic music production started in the early 2000's with the composition of 3 experimental albums. This experience resurfaced years later, to create “Your Friend Esteves”.

The sound of Your Friend Esteves translates his years playing with talented musicians and composing for indie rock bands. His time split between Portugal and Ireland brings a unique flavour to the songs. The music draws from a melodic and emotional ambience, and that can be heard in the layers of synths and layers of vocal harmonies. 

Your Friend Esteves publishes music through Retro Reverb Records.
