CW Ayon may call the Southwestern deserts of New Mexico home, but his soul is deeply rooted in the Blues and grooves of the Mississippi Hill Country. With a rather simple kick/snare and tambourine setup he lays down solid beats while picking out some catchy hooks on anything from acoustic to resonator guitars. Sometimes dropping in a bit of harmonica for good measure. All the while building a sound and playing style that is deceptively larger than it seems.

 Recently CW has been playing gigs with a drummer and a bass player. Dubbed "The Longhairs" the trio has been steadily playing shows in and around the Southwest. One Man Band gigs are still going strong as well.

In 2010, he won a best blues award for his song "Seen My Baby" at the New Mexico Music Awards and another in 2013 for "End of My Rope."

Ayon's influences are Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Robert Belfour, just to name a few.
