Marcos Curiel of P.OD. (Yes, that P.O.D.)

Marcos Curiel of P.OD. (Yes, that P.O.D.)

I imagine that you have probably heard a song called Youth Of A Nation? Well Marcos definitely gets into the story around that song!

We start off with a HEAVY dose of nostalgia with Blake telling the story of "P.O.D. on the Pepsi. box" and Marcos diving into some San Diego bands.

Marcos discusses the music scene and the diverse range of genres that have emerged from the city. He talks about the importance of creating a unique sound and vibe as a musician, drawing inspiration from bands like Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Soundgarden. Marcos also emphasizes the need for musicians to be open-minded and experimental in their approach to music, and expresses his hope for a resurgence of originality in heavy music.

Marcos emphasizes the need for artists to take risks and follow their own vision, rather than simply imitating what is popular. But ALSO the blessing/curse combination that comes with having an original sound.

DJing, tube amps, songwriting, the role of producers, staying true to yourself, and a WHOLE lot more on this episode!
