Ayo/Nest October 2015 Friendly Sky
Is it a Friendly Sky we are living under? I believe so good usually conquers evil. And if we look closely enough there is a lot to be thankful for. There are songs here on this kind of theme, love, joy, compassion putting relationships above all the material stuff that often seems so futile. Songs like Warm Embrace, Fly Right and Friendly Sky to name a few. Performed solo acoustic this is an album full of warmth that you will cherish.
Ayo/Nesta May 2014 Tilbury Docks
The Title Track is a song about Ayo's Father immigrating to the UK in the early 60s and arriving by ship at Tilbury Docks. The Lyrics follow a discussion between Father now deceased and son about his experiences in arriving in London England at that time. There are also songs about love Love for all seasons, a better world Children of the light and Joy. Even an ode to 6 weeks holidays on Three Fortnights. And least we forget the great British eccentric on Only a Minor Prophet, travelling the towns of Britain in his Trilby hat, cape and platform shoes.
Ayo/Nesta July 2013 Reflections
Reflections a personal collection of ten songs. Performed solo acoustic, with very few overdubs. I would say definitely one of the best things I've done. A grower maybe but well worth the wait - you'll see.

Comfort of the Home, covers nostalgia for childhood home life, matters of the heart on tracks like Cold Night in the city, This Thing Called Love and Strange Kind of Lonely.
