Versatile Artist Ayvio Is Brewing With Talent Predestine For Success
Oklahoma is quickly becoming a state hard to ignore oozing with talent, Ayvio (pronounced Ay vee oh) is the latest artist to make noise. There are quite a few artists buzzing with potential coming out of this state that their success seems predestined. Ayvio was born and raised in Newport News, VA, currently residing in Lawton, Oklahoma after being stationed there by the U.S. Army.
The versatile artist took advantage the opportunity travel around the country to showcase his skills. He first started stand-up comedy at local churches and honing his skills recording background vocals for other artist. This eventually led to the formation of the group Alpha Team releasing one mixtape in 2012 and an EP in 2014.
AYVIO released his debut album “To Her, With Love”, was released July 9th, 2019. A concept album, Ayvio describes “To Her, With Love” as a love letter to his wife Stephanie of 13 years. He states, “from start to finish, me writing a letter to her.” From the stages of their first meeting each other through the ups and downs of their relationship as husband and wife, each song on the album tells the listener their story as he takes them on this musical journey.”
One of my favorite tracks is “No One Will”, he talks about how he might not be the best looking or most talented but no one will out work him loving his significant other more than him.
I never been the best looking guy / a pretty boy I never been / hard work for me thats work hard work it won’t be the prettiest picture that you ever see / I played second more that twice / finished third more than I liked / I took a L up top or two / But I promised no one will beat me at loving you.
He worked with another Oklahoma native super producer Fyu-chur on the album and they put together a phenomenal debut.
Already Ayvio’s accomplished some major milestones in his carerr resulting him being awarded The Hall of Fame Champion 2X consecutively on Villa Koola Radio’s Dallas Vibes Countdown for his videos “Are We Done, Love?” and “Back to Loving”, two of the songs off his “To Her, With Love” album.

"Ayvio ready to soar to new heights with love letter of album"

Ashlie "Ayvio" Overby visited Studio Blanket/Tent Fort to world premiere his latest release, "Hooked" from his new album released this week, "To Her, With Love." It's got the makings of a summer hit with an infectious Jackie Wilson meets Outkast meets Bruno Mars vibe to make it a killer.
Overby calls the album "a love letter to my wife," Stephanie. It's a love letter long-considered and masterfully crafted. The couple have been in each other's lives since the age of 2. It's a bond that is strong and it comes out in the songwriting and music. When your heart is worn on your sleeve, your art must be at least as open to connect.
"It tells of ups and downs in a relationship," he said. "It is loosely based on our relationship."
The album took over a year to write and record, Overby said. Produced by Andrew "FYUCHUR" Jackson, it's a piece of fine-tuned art. With all the instrumentation by FYU-CHUR, Overby tackled all the vocal work. This is a winning combination.
In taking the name Ayvio (pronounced AYEvee-oh), it's a phonetic sounding of Overby's initials. He says the letter combination "A V O" is reminiscent of flight.
In flight, there is lift, something Overby conveys in his artistic mission. He's a singer, songwriter, rapper, comedian and actor. All of these are central to the first of his mini-movie videos that companion the album. The first video, produced by Evan Carter, was voted number one in last week's Dallas Vibez Top 10 Underground Video Countdown.
Born and raised in Newport News, Va., Overby moved to Oklahoma after being stationed at Fort Sill by the Army. During his time in the military, he began performing stand-up comedy at local churches and eventually began to travel about the country providing many with the opportunity laugh with him and his brand of humor. At the same time, he began recording backing vocals and features for recording artists and in 2012, his first song was recorded.
It didn't take long until he helped form the group, Alpha Team who released one mixtape entitled, "The Project" in 2012 and an EP entitled, "Get Live" in 2014. They made some fiercely powerful original music and were something to see live. When Alpha Team decided to take a break, Overby began to write and record his first solo effort. "To Her, With Love."
Now available on all digital platforms following Tuesday's release, its style reflects the artist's eclectic taste of music, fusing gospel roots with R&B, soul, jazz and hiphop to bring "a blended vibe with a little something for everyone," he said.
Overby and his band, The Ayviators will perform the material live Friday, at the Great Plains Coliseum Annex Building, 920 S. Sheridan. There will be performances from Sid Carter and Sean C. Johnson. Doors open at 7 p.m. and advance tickets are $7 for general admission and $15 for VIP. Tickets at the door are $10. Tickets available on Eventbrite.thwl.eventbrite.com. - Lawton Consititution
