About AJR

The indie-pop band AJR—three brothers born and raised in New York City—achieved a startlingly quick level of success with “I’m Ready", a buoyant electro-pop smash that was featured in the trailer for Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck and became certified US Platinum in 2015 and now boasts almost 20 million YouTube hits on the official music video. In addition, the group has reached 11.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, sells thousands of singles each week, was featured in many major publications (including Billboard and USA Today), hit double-platinum certification in Australia, and enjoys airplay on pop radio stations across the country.

AJR’s diverse appeal matches their diverse sound, having toured with artists like Demi Lovato, Train, Andy Grammer, Hoodie Allen, and American Authors. Recently, AJR has performed on The Today Show, Michael & Kelly, X Factor Australia, and VH1 Big Morning Buzz.

Adam Met (bass/vocals), is the oldest brother, a Columbia University graduate. Ryan Met (ukulele/piano/vocals), a bespectacled ‘94 kid is the band’s main songwriter, also having co-written Andy Grammer hits “Back Home” and the certified gold “Good To Be Alive”. Jack Met (vocals/guitar), is the 18-year old lead vocalist who splits time between the band attending Columbia.
AJR got their musical start ten years ago, busking on the streets and in the parks of New York. Raised on vinyls from the 50s and 60s, AJR was initially inspired by the likes of The Beach Boys and Frankie Valli, but the original sound they’ve now created resembles a modern mix of those classic sounds, with flavors of Imagine Dragons, fun., and hip-hop production elements pointing towards Kanye West.

AJR writes, records, and produces all of their music from the living room of their Chelsea apartment. No pop svengali overseeing their work, no studio musicians filling in the blanks, no Max Martin co-write: simply a DIY pop group with Pro Tools and a $99 microphone.
