PBLA Industry Talks is a new series in which Point Blank LA's key music business instructor Marko DeSantis sits down with some of the music industry's biggest names to chat about their careers, their insights into the music business, the skills it takes to achieve success, and more. Marko is an industry legend in his own right, best known as the lead guitarist for the rock band Sugarcult, with whom he received a RIAA-Certified Gold® Record for the debut album Start Static.
