Ayron Jones and The Way / Bio

Seattle-born vocalist, songwriter and Hendrix-inspired guitarist, Ayron Jones, has established himself as one of the top independent rock artists in the Pacific Northwest. Opening for Grammy
award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers such as Run DMC, B.B. King and Jeff Beck, Jones has stunned audiences and gained instant fans with a genre-defying mashup of blues-infused Grunge and West Coast Hip-hop.

In 2012, Sir Mix-A-lot walked into a Seattle dive bar and discovered Ayron Jones and his 2-piece rhythm section, 'The Way.' That night, as Jones put on a powerful performance showcasing his usual smoky voice, unmatched guitar playing and the kind of live show that hasn't been seen since Seattle's era of Grunge, the rap icon left stunned and in disbelief.

"...The first thing I found myself asking was, 'Why hasn't anybody recorded this guy...' Because that is easily the best talent in Seattle right now," - Sir Mix-a-lot, Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Jones went into Mix-A-Lot's studio and a year later released his first studio album, 'Dream.' With originals like the ballad, 'My Love Remains' and 'Feeding from the Devil's Hands,' a millennial update on
the iconic Seattle sound, 'Dream' created an instant buzz around the Northwest.

The Album received rave reviews and national recognition, earning the indie-rocker appearances at festivals like SXSW, Sasquatch! and Bumbershoot, along with radio shows such as NPR's Livewire and a
national cable TV debut on Diddy's RevoltTV.

By 2016, Jones had established himself as the torch-bearer of Seattle rock when he was announced as a featured artist on the Levee Walkers album. A supergroup comprised of Mike McCready (Pearl Jam/Mad Season), Duff McKagan (Guns 'N' Roses/Velvet Revolver), and Barrett Martin, (Screaming Trees/Mad Season), the Levee Walkers brings together rockers from around the world to showcase original music written by McCready, McKagen and Martin.

In addition to working with the Levee Walkers to turn out their first album, Jones is also preparing for his highly anticipated sophomore release, 'Audio Paint Job,' which is being produced by Barrett Martin
and the legendary alt-rock producer Jack Endino.

'Audio Paint Job' is set for release in 2017
