MHH227 - Tony Lovato the lead singer of MEST, who we are playing with on Dec 16th in Los Angeles, CA.
We talk the creation of Mest, how they got signed, playing Warped Tour in a wheelchair and refusing to go home, what changed when he had a kid— its quite the deep dive. Lots of good stuff here. From the south side streets to the main stage Tony Lovato has beaten the odds while playing the game. A great work ethic is what pushed this story forward shooting Mest up the charts and across the country. Even when a back injury puts Tony in a wheelchair he keeps moving forward.
Go to iTunes and download Broken Down 2, his new acoustic record.
