Ayron Jones and The Way
Ayron Jones and The Way
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
Foxy Lemon
Foxy Lemon
Foxy Lemon is a hard-working band on a mission to prove that rock 'n roll is alive and well in Portland, Oregon. They are quickly making a name for themselves as one of the premier rock acts in their home city and throughout the Pacific Northwest, garnering much acclaim from local zines and fans as a band to watch in the near future.
Redwood Son
Redwood Son
Redwood Son doesn't just play roots music, or funk music, or Americana, or some Northwest invention that comes out of adding unnecessary instruments. More than anything else, Redwood Son plays fun music. They have fun playing it. Their fans have fun hearing it. That is the connection.
