Pressure Buss Pipe CD Release Party w/ Ayron Jones and The Way ft. Mountain Lion Sound, Bushy Bush, DJ Sticky, & DJ Shadoe Blessed with a smooth melodic voice that has been capturing the attention of many in his home town of the US Virgin Islands, and writing skills that can capture a story like no other, Pressure, born Delyno Brown is ready to take Jamaica and the international audience by storm. Born on August 5th 1981, he began his musical journey at a very early age when he started learning to play the trumpet at age 9 and in just two short years he became a member of the Rising Stars Youth Steel Orchestra where he increased his knowledge of music by learning to play a number of other musical instruments. In high school with a more advance feel of music Pressure became an active member in his school's concert, jazz, marching and steel bands. At the age of 17 Pressure moved to the United States to finish high school, it was then he entered a few talent shows including Amateur Night at the Apollo in January, 1999. Pressure then joined a group with 6 other artist with whom he shared a common goal, to spread the word of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie 1st through sweet Reggae music. It was in this group that Pressure perform in his first professional stage show when the group opened for international reggae star Sizzla Kalunji in 2000. After an excellent performance the group was in high demand and then went on to open for other top acts such as Capleton, Buju Banton, Bunny Wailer and Junior Reid among others. Pressure eventually went solo, and went on to open for Sizzla, Elephant Man and multi platinum recording artist Sean Paul. He also released a solo album called The Pressure Is On in 2004. He performed in front of his largest audience at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in the same year. Pressure is currently working on his sophomore album with internationally acclaimed reggae dancehall producer Donovan "Don Corleon" Bennett. He already has two singles currently receiving great airplay on major Jamaican radio stations, "Love and Affection" and "Ghetto Life". He recently released a new video for the single "Love and Affection" with talks of a second video for "Ghetto Life" in the near future. Seattle guitarist and frontman Ayron Jones (Eh-Rahn), has become one of Seattle's hottest up-and-comers with his brand of Seattle Rock. Jones has taken a hybrid style of guitar playing pioneered by Jimi Hendrix, in which the chord and solo are played at the same time, and infused the raw energy of punk with the inner-city attitude of Hip-Hop. The result is a soulful reincarnation of that iconic Seattle sound. Think, Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Nirvana. In 2010 guitarist Ayron Jones started Ayron Jones and The Way. A three-piece blues rock band that included drummer, Conrad Real and bassist, DeAndre Enrico. The young group immediately began turning heads and quickly found themselves opening for legends like Robert Cray, and rising star Lukas Nelson. By the Summer of 2012, AJ and The Way were beginning to make an impact on Seattle's music scene after becoming the regional champions of the popular Hard Rock Rising contest, a worldwide battle of the bands. The band would go on to place 30th out of over 12,000 bands, but also grabbed the attention of the local media and more importantly, Seattle Hip-Hop icon and Grammy award-winning rapper, Sir Mix A-Lot. After seeing the band perform live, Mix A-Lot approached the band and offered to produce their album. The group accepted the offer and they immediately began recording. So, finding Ayron, the first thing I found myself asking was, Why hasn't anybody recorded this guy and why is it that nobody knows about it in my circles? Because that is easily the best talent in Seattle right now.- Sir Mix-a-Lot to The Seattle P.I. In 2013, the band replaced drummer Conrad Real, with the talent and experience of Kai Van De Pitte out of Portland, Oregon. Van De Pitte brought a metal background with him as a drummer, giving the band that nasty edge they had been looking for. The band would be invited to perform at premier music festivals such as, Bumbershoot, Mt. Baker Rhythm and Blues Festival and Summer Meltdown resulting in tremendous buzz and momentum leading up to the Fall release of their debut album, 'Dream'. Though the release was met with rave reviews from Seattle media, it was the sold-out album release show on November 2, 2013 (with Sir Mix-a-Lot and Tomeka Williams opening) where Jones made the biggest statement with a performance the Seattle Times says, "...Elevated himself into the conversation on Seattle rock royalty..." 2014 looks to be an even bigger year as the band gears up for national attention. They opened for the legendary B.B. King on March 3rd at the famed Moore Theatre in Seattle. They also performed on NPR's Livewire! radio show this Spring and are planning a West Coast tour for this Fall.
