This week or guest is guitarist/composer Richard Padrón. Born in Cuba, raised in Miami and currently residing in NYC, Richard has made a name for himself as a sideman with Zé Luis Oliveira, Lauren Hill, Victor Prieto and many other eclectic groups in New York. He also writes and records with his own group and has been commissioned to compose for orchestra and film alike. In this interview he discusses finding and carving out a niche for himself as a guitarist, composer, bandleader and recording artist in the challenging and often unforgiving climate of New York City.
