Fernando Maia

Fernando Maia was born in 1998 in Porto, Portugal. Fernando received his first drum kit at Christmas Eve when he was only 3 years old. Since that moment, he became really interested in learning music. He started to study music and guitar at the age of 13 in Alberta Lima Music School and months later started learning drums with the drummer Francisco Lima. After that year, Fernando joined several cover bands, indie and rock bands, and played at several places. His interests in music are really diverse, as they go from Bach to Opeth. Two years ago, he started learning the violin and now he’s learning with the baroque violinist Ana Clérigo.
At the moment, Fernando is taking a master’s degree in Engineering Physics and also playing in two rock/progressive metal bands: Heylel and Phase Transition. He is also improving his drum skills with the help of his mentor Diogo Mota, also a Soultone endorser.
