The Mike Herrera Podcast

David Bazen, Pedro the Lion, joins the Mike Herrera Hour this week! He takes us way back into the the early days of Pedro the Lion & the Seattle Music Scene in the early 90s.

So call the Priests and Paramedics because you’re not going to know what hit you! Mike and Dave start out reminiscing about the past and move quickly into what it’s like coming from a family of musicians and how it shapes your life. Then the guys discuss the secrets behind writing music and how Dave uses house shows to keep that music alive.
