Latest Updates

New Album Announcement: "What You Desire" is coming May 25th 

We're excited to announce that our new album "What You Desire" will be released for streaming and download on May 25th!  The all new six song original album features new songs written by AYW to include "Hurricane", Butterfly Tattoo", and "Unstoppable".  The video for our first single "Slice of Sunshine" will be out in early May.  After working hard this winter in the studio, we can't wait to share the new stuff with everyone, and get back out on tour to support the new album release.  We'll be updating our summer tour schedule soon, so stay tuned in.

AYW Back on the Road? 

It's been just over six months since we played our last live show.  Concerts and festivals have all but disappeared in that time, with the music community shifting to various virtual performances to help fill the void.  Normal seems like such a long time ago, and a return to live music before the pandemic still seems like it could be miles away.  So where do we go from here?

We have been quietly preparing for that moment when an opportunity to return to the road presented itself, even if that moment meant performing live within a limited capacity.  It seems as though that moment may have arrived.  AYW might just perform its first live show back next month, and we couldn't be more excited. 

As the details are being finalized, we are gearing up for another virtual performance as an opening act for the upcoming iHeart Virtual Music Festival on September 18/19.  We are excited to share the details later this week.  If you haven't already followed us, check us out @aywmusic on FB/IG for announcements on iHeart, and upcoming events.  

For now, we continue to get ready!

Working from Behind the Scenes 

Happy Wednesday to all of you out there.


We would like to thank everyone who tuned in via FB Premiere/IGTV last week as we shared our listening party and complete live performance of the new EP, "Set Yourself Apart".  We hope you had a chance to download it for free...if not, you can do so on our free download page.

As we all navigate through this time together, we just want to say how appreciative we are of what we get to do for our Army, and this country day in and day out.  We might be under travel restrictions, but we are using this time to prepare for when we are able to travel again, and play for those next great audiences.  It is truly an honor each and every single time we get the chance to perform.  We are especially looking forward to touring in support of the new album!

We will be trying some new stuff next week, as we continue to find ways to engage everyone from behind the scenes.  In the mean time, check us out @aywmusic on IG/FB/YouTube, and check back here soon for more updates.  Stay safe!

We are excited to announce the upcoming release of a new all original 5 song EP on April 1, 2020! After the completion of our fall tour, we had the opportunity to record in downtown Louisville at the end of 2019.

We shot the video for the first single, "Taking This Chance" in Miami, FL and it's on its way on March 26th.
