“There’s nothing more American than rock ’n’ roll,” Jones told the Seattle Times, “And in this time period, we need it now more than ever. Regardless of who is responsible, there’s divisiveness in this country that we’ve never seen since the civil-rights era. Rock ’n’ roll embodies that American blues soul and spirit. Our generation, as millennials, has forgotten what it means to play rock ’n’ roll.”
Featuring his most confessional and rocking songs yet, Ayron also embellishes with fiery blues licks and booming hip-hop vibes. The 14 track Audio Paint Job, showcases Ehssan Karimi on drums and Bob Lovelace on bass. This track, “features the vulnerable and lilting vocals of singer Scarlet Parke, the humbling strings of composer Andrew Joslyn, and the deft, upright bass playing of Evan Flory-Barnes.” (Times)
Jones has opened major acts such as Guns N’ Roses, B.B. King, Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Rahkim, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Spearhead, and many more; and at festivals like SXSW, Sasquatch, and Bumbershoot. He is elated that his feeling that 2017 will be a bust-out year is coming true. “I’m extremely grateful and anxious to see what’s next.” This is only a testament, which confirms big things are ahead for Ayron Jones.
