NASHVILLE, TN (March 11, 2022) – As iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Rock Artist nominee AYRON JONES continues to cement his place in the genre, an electric version of his new single “Hot Friends (Live In Paris)” and music video debut today via Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. Written alongside Tarek Jafar and Paul Meany, the track was featured on his critically praised CHILD OF THE STATE. Loudwire, American Songwriter and Classic Rock Magazine named the autobiographical project one of the best albums of 2021. Listen to “Hot Friends (Live In Paris)” HERE.
Fans can watch the video premiere on YouTube today at 11:00A CT and chat with Ayron about the live performance. Tune in HERE.
With the massive success of Top 5 debut “Take Me Away,” Ayron laid a foundation for Top 10 “Supercharged” and multi-week No. 1 “Mercy.” On a trajectory of breaking barriers, Ayron explains “being Black in the Rock industry, I was forging a path into establishments and onto tours that had not previously embraced an artist like me. But the one thing that always changed minds and spoke for itself was the music.”
The gritty, genre-blending artist’s reach now extends well beyond the 90s grunge scene roots. Ayron has played alongside Run DMC, Public Enemy, Rahkim, Jeff Beck, Theory of a Deadman, Robin Trower, and Spearhead, plus opened for iconic acts such as The Rolling Stones, Guns ’N’ Roses, B.B. King and Shinedown. Jones is currently on the road in the U.S. as direct support for Koe Wetzel (through March) and Black Stone Cherry (April 21-27) before heading to Europe for select headline dates throughout June.
