This past year has really been a crazy one. I saw some amazing highs both professionally and personally with music and family stronger that it has ever been. At the same time I reach news lows with growing difficulties in my battle with depression and unfairly losing my job of 6 years and having to rebuild from scratch. I went through so many emotions the past year Joy,Love,Hurt,Pain,Anger..... lol lots of Anger. Then one day I came to the conclusion that I couldn't stay in that space forever. Yeah crazy things had happened but what was I going to do about it. More important if I claim to use so many things as healthy and positive outlets why does it work. Then it hit me IT DOES WORK you just keep clinging to these unhealthy elements in your life. Just let them all go so that's what I did and I've been happier ever since. In my music this translated to realizing that I want to create music that can truly shine and reflect who I am ... ALL of who I am. So I am excited to announce the rebranding of Anthony Avery to Tony Aye! I'm excited for the new direction and sound that comes from this and to experience the rush of being challenge in a way different from what I have known. No more watering down or filtering my sound. This Is Me, Take Me As I Am!
