Vocalist Marc Griffin and emcee Tyler Cordy of the pop/rock collective 2AM Club were the recent guests for an installment of The Recording Academy's 5 Questions With … series. Held at The Recording Academy New York Chapter, Griffin and Cordy discussed the band's biggest career moments, utilizing social media and advice for aspiring artists, among other topics.
"We've always wanted to make sure that there was an open line of communication between us and anyone who is giving us the time to listen to the music that we're writing," said Cordy. "It makes you want to work harder and become better when you see someone from Indonesia who is in love with your music, and [they write] you and [tell] you what it means to them," added Griffin.
