ABOUt

António Gaspar Mão de Ferro, is a Portuguese pop and blues rock musi­cian, singer-songwriter, record­ing artist, and music pro­ducer from Oporto, Portugal, born June 25 of 1976.

Very early, he dis­cov­ered is pas­sion for music, spe­cially for elec­tric gui­tar! He learned how to play gui­tar with his father and later on he became an auto­di­dact. His father played in a well-known Portuguese band from the 60´s, the Tártaros.

Since the very begin­ning of his pro­fes­sional career, Antonio has been play­ing with sev­eral blues artists

  • Minnemann Blues Band
  • Jerrel Lamar
  • Mable John (Ray Charles)
  • Zackia Hoocker
  • Ollan Christopher Bell
  • Airto Moreira
  • Rui Veloso.

He has been referred on the English mag­a­zine Modern Guitars, by Tom Watson say­ing that “…“I espe­cially enjoyed Ironhand’s use of the Talk Box effect on a cou­ple of num­bers. Added much to the heart­felt qual­ity of his solos”…”

At 22 he joined Portuguese super group GNR, with whom recorded 3 albums and toured Portugal and Europe. In addi­tion to the per­for­mances on TV gala´s, nation­als and inter­na­tion­als fes­ti­vals, he played in 2006 Rock in Rio”.

António Mão de Ferro’s music is absolutely het­ero­ge­neous, as if it gath­ered the col­ors of the world and com­bined them in the shape of songs.

António Mão de Ferro con­nects his per­fect Blues tech­nique, to the sim­plic­ity of a POP song for­mat, where words and sounds are high­lighted accord­ing to the wishes of the song.
