Easy Street Records

My Life in the Sunshine is about my struggle to connect with my father, Roy Ayers, whom I've never known. There are plenty of fun stories about growing up with my uncle, Alan Braufman, in New York City in the seventies, being a bi-racial kid with a young single mother and moving to Salt Lake City in the eighties, and living in Seattle and touring in rock bands in the nineties. Some of the most fun parts to write are about my first record store job at Easy Street Records, co-founding Sonic Boom Records, and the past decade in NYC running 4AD. But My Life in the Sunshine is mostly about the influence my father has had over me despite his absence, and the blurring of lines that define family and race.
