    • Entrepreneurship

E105 :


On this episode we interview Rene Mata from Reach NYC after his band came out with their first release in over 17 years! We learn why they gap and why the come back with his hard rock band. The podcast was recorded while Rene was in studio to work after the show so we also hear from band guitarist Nick Cavagnaro and producer and former guitarist of Anthrax and current lead guitarist for Volbeat Rob Caggiano. We talk through stories in the scene, working in the music business, and unfortunately the groups experience with their friend Chester Bennington of Linkin Park’s passing. Very interesting but heavy episode hitting these topics. Let us know what you think.

Quotes


“ I’m gonna give you respect I don’t care if you are a garbage man or if you’ve sold 20 Million records I’m gonna treat you the same.” - Rene Mata


 


“You’ve gotta be committed to going all the way for it, there’s no putting your foot in, you gotta go all the way. But you do have to be honest with yourself. What am I lacking?”


 


“You need the friction sometimes to make good art.” - Host Dave Swillum
