Weston Taylor uses the moniker ayo river in his creative endeavors. Though always a lover of music, it is in 2014 that Ayo began writing and recording songs with producer Matt Martin.
They have so far done a number of songs which he’s since collected together to create his debut LP, Failed State. We share with you the video for one notable single, “White Dress”. Written during summer heat, the song infuses elements of Hip-Hop (with influences from his Atalanta upbringing).
“…’White Dress’ is about dark sides, when I drink too much and don’t remember what I’ve done or said. It takes that part of me and showed how I kind of destroyed one relationship by comparing it to another. I tried to measure up two totally different loves, and they didn’t match. It’s addressing my own personal problems, Why aren’t things good enough for me? Why do I deal with it by partying too much?” ~ayo river
