Aryon Jones and The Way “Love Is The Answer” – Official Music Video
“When my first album dropped it was literally trial by fire. I had gone from playing solo in the corner of some Seattle dive bar, to opening for B.B. King in a matter 4 months. All of a sudden I had a name and a voice and nothing to say. However, over time as I settled into the reality of who I was becoming, I began to realize how much influence I, as an artist could have on the collective consciousness. That’s why when Anthony approached me with the the idea for the film, I knew Love is the Answer was the one. It’s a song that I feel the collective conscious should hear in these turbulent times. A reminder that while we all experience and perceive different things in our daily lives, we are made of the earth, that’s made of the sun, thats made of our galaxy, that’s made of the universe. We are the universe. If we want to see a change in our lives, or in the lives of others we must become and project what we wish to see in our world. Love is The Answer.” – Ayron Jones
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 told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Jones went into Mix-A-Lot’s studio and a year later released his first LP, ‘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 assumed the legacy 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.
