Hello and welcome to How Did I Get Here? From The Vault! Today we go back to episode 213 with Black pumas founder, producer and artist, Adrian Quesada. This show was originally released on 10/17/13. Adrian has released an incredible amount of amazing music through all of his bands including Black Pumas and his amazing "Boleros Psicodelicos" album (my favorite album of 2020) since this came out and has become one of my favorite musician/producers around. Below are my original notes form the show.
My guest for episode 213 is Grammy award winning producer, Adrian Quesada! I met Adrian a few months ago when i did the Elliot Smith tribute show. He was in the house band. I knew he was in Grupo Fantasma and Brownout and the he was producing a lot of my friends, Davíd Garza, Suzanna Choffel and Jazz Mills to name a few. Anyway, he's a great guy, immensely talented and we hit it off at the Elliot tribute, I asked him to come by and be on the show and he did. we talked about Grupo Fantasma, the Echocentric, Brownout, playing with Prince, Prince, producing, growing up skate punk in Laredo, Golden Globe parties, Grammy's and much, much more. I hope you enjoy getting to know Adrian Quesada. I did.
