There’s no better time for the blues than while we’re still all prevented from gathering together to enjoy music together. We will do so again soon, but meantime, you just gotta keep singing the blues. Thus Jacob Green entreats the universe—as well he should—with “No Reason to Stop,” a plaintive, gently wailing song that, despite its pessimistic title, is actually rather upbeat. “No Reason to Stop” provides a toe-tapping tour through this most soulful of all music genres—and actually infuses blues with some soul to boot. The finger-picking Green complements with some truly heartfelt lyrics. It’s insanely simple, but then again, that’s what the blues is: three chords lamenting past hurt while looking toward the future. Give it a deserved listen below.
Stay tuned for more, as Green has another album brewing for March called “No End in Sight.” Meantime, you can kick back with “No Reason to Stop.”

Musician, educator, and activist Marc 2Ray joins the Alchemicast: with Andy Reed talking about how your wordplay, delivery, timing, and cadence are your instrument as a hip-hop artist. Marc uses his music to educate and empower listeners about everyday issues such as social justice, inequality, drug abuse, and tracks like “1915” about the Armenian genocide (of which his grandfather is a survivor) are being used as an educational tool in high school and college curriculums. Marc discusses his songwriting and recording process and his extensive collaboration efforts. He discusses how 9:30 Club holds a special place in his heart through personal experiences with DJ Tommy B, and how his 2020 album, Fresh Air, transformed from being supported through live events to a more digital experience for fans.
