Ayron Jones smashed his way onto the scene with his debut single “Take Me Away” back in October (check out the video below) and has followed it up with a live video for “Boys From the Puget Sound”.

CAUTION: SWEARY WORDS AHEAD

He’s a deadly force on the guitar with blues hooks reminiscent of Hendrix and enough soul for Sly Stone. The track is his second single he’s released and follows his powerful debut ’Take Me Away’.

The gritty, genre-blending artist is an amalgam of the incredibly rich musical history of Seattle – the city that has helped to shape who he is as an artist and person. Building early critical acclaim independently, The Seattle Times proclaimed he is “on a mission to reintroduce classic, American rock’n’roll to a new generation”, while Seattle Mag amplified the notion, describing a “voice that swerves between soulful runs and growly shouts, and an ability to seriously wail on the guitar…” Now, Jones is primed to offer his sound to the rest of the world. Dichotomy is a key factor, with songs both twisted and dark, yet also soaring and brilliant.

Part of the fabric of his Seattle atmosphere, Jones has opened for Guns ’N’ Roses at the Gorge and B.B. King, plus worked with Sir Mix-A-Lot and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin and Eric Lilavois at the iconic London Bridge Studio. The Northwest city has championed his sound with consistently sold-out shows and an embrace from native music royalty including Duff McKagan and Mike McCready. His reach extends well beyond the region, having played alongside Run DMC, Public Enemy, Rahkim, Jeff Beck, Theory of a Deadman, Robin Trower,and Spearhead, plus notable festivals including SXSW, Sasquatch, and Bumbershoot.
