Jon Tyler Wiley – Somebody Else’s Songs

The Alchemist

Jon Tyler Wiley joins the Alchemicast with Andy Reed to discuss the music he’s made with Jon Tyler Wiley & His Virginia Choir. The band announced their existence to the world just two weeks before the pandemic changed the plans of this five-piece Alternative/Americana act from Fredericksburg, VA. Jon discusses how it took some time for him to realize how good he had it as DMV artist, but reflects on what an incredible experience he’s had growing up as a musician in the region and as a member of Melodime. Jon discusses the songwriting process for their latest singles, “Laura Lee” and “Strong” (both of which are available now).

Marc 2Ray – Educate and Empower

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.
