Raw, Soulful, Electrifiying, Sexy. Seattle songwriter Ayron Jones’ mature sound bleeds out with an intimate, rich, fresh style – Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Nirvana. Capturing a “good kind of pain,” Jones’ striking songs sink in to stay, blending Alternative Rock, Punk, Blues, Hip-hop, and Soul, punching out an emotional body of work with a memorable twist. Jones began turning heads in 2010 when he teamed up with drummer Conrad Real and bassist DeAndre Enrico. Forming the band Ayron Jones and the Way, the trio would soon open for the legendary Robert Cray, rising Lukas Nelson, and be playing a prime slot at the famous Bumbershoot festival in Seattle.
In 2011, the band won the “Best in Show” award at the King 5 Best of Western Washington Awards. In 2012 they finished in the top 30 out of more than 12,000 bands in the global Hard Rock Rising contest. Since then, they’ve shocked Seattle’s music scene with passion-driven, sweat-soaked, ragingly off-the-wall performances. Leaving audiences in a crazed frenzy rivaling that of the Grunge Rock era, they’ve produced what The Seattle Stranger’s Megan Seling calls “one of the most entertaining performances I’ve seen so far this year.”
From juicy heart-hurters to grittier Rock songs, their debut EP, Baptized in Muddy Waters, remains in high demand. Delivering songs that are achingly gorgeous and full of well-crafted muscle, the band is working on their first full-length album. Indeed, Ayron Jones and the Way leaves a definite mark on each stage they touch.
