Ayron Jones and the Way have announced the release of their newest music video for their hit single, “My Love Remains.” The video was funded on Kickstarter, earning nearly $20,000, five thousand dollars above their goal. Sir Mix-a-Lot, responsible for discovering them after they had won a worldwide battle of the bands, makes a cameo in the video, and maintains close ties to the group. He produced their debut album Dream, which AJ and the Way are currently on tour to promote.
After a week of shredding stages along the Pacific Northwest, Seattle-based Ayron Jones and The Way will continue on their tour and move onto cities like Denver, Sacramento, San Francisco, ending in Las Vegas opening up for Michael Franti. Ayron Jones and The Way, who The Seattle Weekly wrote “combine the style of Stevie Ray Vaughn with the specter of Nirvana,” are known for their raucous live shows. Executive produced by legendary rap artist Sir Mix-A-Lot, the group’s highly energetic rock blended with blues, hip-hop and even metal makes them a new force to reckon with on the music landscape.
“Ayron Jones has managed to elevate himself into the conversation on Seattle rock royalty.”

Seattle guitarist and frontman Ayron Jones (Eh-Rahn), has become one of Seattle’s hottest up-and-comers with his brand of Seattle Rock. Jones has taken a hybrid style of guitar playing pioneered by Jimi Hendrix, in which the chord and solo are played at the same time, and infused the raw energy of punk-rock with the inner-city attitude of hip-hop. The result is a soulful reincarnation of that iconic Seattle sound. Think, Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Nirvana.
Founded in 2010, Jones started as a three-piece blues rock band that included drummer Conrad Real and bassist DeAndre Enrico. The young group immediately began turning heads and quickly found themselves opening for legends such as Robert Cray, as well as rising stars like Lukas Nelson.
In 2012, after the band became the regional champions of the popular Hard Rock Cafe’s “Hard Rock Rising” contest, a worldwide battle of the bands, local music legend Sir Mix A-Lot approached Jones and company and offered to produce their album. The group gladly accepted and began recording their debut full-length, Dream, which was released in 2013.
In 2013, the band replaced drummer Real with metal drummer Kai Van De Pitte. The band were invited to perform at several premier music festivals, including Bumbershoot, Mt. Baker Rhythm and Blues Festival, and Summer Meltdown.
2014 has so far exceeded even the band’s highest expectations, as Ayron Jones and The Way opened for the legendary B.B. King on March 3 at the famed Moore Theatre in Seattle and then performed on NPR’s Livewire! later in the spring.
