SEATTLE, WA (May 14, 2021) – As anticipation builds around his forthcoming release, Seattle Rocker AYRON JONES slides in a slow burn anthem with his powerful vocals and signature guitar squeals called “Take Your Time” (Big Machine/John Varvatos Records). Listen to the amplified track here: https://ayron.lnk.to/takeyourtimePR.
Jones co-produced and wrote the track as a reminder to himself about embracing the moment and appreciating how each plays a part in your story. “Being grateful is what this song is really about and being able to really enjoy where you’re at, from wherever you’re at,” he explains. Addressing the polarization and imbalances in his life growing up Jones sings:
I know it’s hard when you’re moving too fast
So smile for the moment, I wanna make this last
And I know it’s hard to get things off your mind
But you know I’m patient, so please take your time
Doubling down on his uniqueness with music that harkens back to his beginnings, Jones will release his 12-song collection CHILD OF THE STATE on May 21 via Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. “Having faced the abandonment I did as a child, and how that affected me in life, is really what this album is about. It’s the triumph of overcoming all of that and still being that person. I’m the same kid looking for his parents, that longed for the love and support,” he shares. “A lot of people have faced adoption and abandonment, but it’s not really talked about as to how that affects people and I thought it was important to be a beacon of hope for those people. To stand for something and prove not everyone has to be a stereotype or statistic.”
CHILD OF THE STATE also features his current Top 10 single “Mercy” and Top 5 debut “Take Me Away.” From the streets of Seattle to full-blown Rock star, Jones has built an uncompromising sound and truth in his music. He extends that ethos here, continuing the same creative legacy of his hometown’s greatest forces such as Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden.
