Recently, Ayrton released the deeply personal and heartfelt song “You’re On My Mind” under his own name. The song makes you feel sad and full of emotion by using a unique mix of ambient rhythms, blues guitar, and dreamy vocals.
Ayrton recorded and produced the whole song in his bedroom, making him a true one-man band. The song shows off his impressive guitar skills, which he learned from greats like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and John Mayer.
The lyrics of “You’re On My Mind” tell a real and painful story of lost love, written as a message to a previous love interest. Ayrton’s powerful vocals bring this emotional narrative to life, making it a standout track in his discography.
Currently, Ayrton’s music is being broadcast on BBC radio, and his fan base is rapidly growing. As a journalist and publicist, I’m excited to see how this really talented musician grows, and I encourage you to keep an ear out for what he does next.

What is your real and showbiz name?
Ayrton Jimenez and Ayrton Jimenez! I don’t have a stage name
What would you say is your greatest strength as an artist?
Probably my songwriting; it’s something that has always come naturally to me, but up until recently, I didn’t know how to produce it and get it out into the world! Now that I am developing as a producer, I am able to bring more of my songs to life.
What is your creative process when making music?
It always starts with the guitar; I’ll usually develop melodies and riffs that way. After that, I start singing melodies over the top, which usually gives me ideas as to the core lyrics, and I can then take pen to paper and start to flesh out the lyrics and story from there. The rest of the instrumentation I write while I am recording, and I try to experiment with new sounds.
How long have you been making music, and what attracted you to it?
I have been making music since I was 10 years old. I was always fascinated with the guitar and looked up to idols like Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix, among many others. I started writing when I was very young and have always had them in my back pocket, but only recently started recording them, and I haven’t looked back!
What is the biggest challenge you have had to overcome as a band or artist so far?
I think the industry is so saturated now that the main thing is exposure and sticking with it when there aren’t many ears listening! I also think that learning the tech side of the production was an obstacle as it was completely self-taught, but I am getting the hang of it!
What streaming sites do you think offer the most value to a band?
Spotify, in my opinion, offers the most opportunities because it is the most widely used platform and offers a variety of ways for new artists to gain exposure.
How do you think social media or the internet have affected the music scene in your country?
I think it’s positive and negative in many ways. On the one hand, it has lowered barriers to entry so that really anyone can release music which is great. On the flip side of that, you’re a small fish in a huge pond and it can be hard to get noticed!
What are your friend’s and parents’ thoughts on your career?
They are generally supportive, but I believe they see it as more of a hobby, haha.
What does your current song mean to you?
I wrote this one when I was heartbroken as many songwriters do! I think from a lyrical perspective, it reminds me of a hard time but it’s nice to be able to turn that emotion into. something positive and creative. From a musical perspective, I am happy with my new sound as I keep developing as a new artist.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Thank you for the support!
