Insightful lyrical confessions, alternative ambition, earnest charm, D.I.Y. songcraft, and magnetic pop choruses ushered AJR to mainstream ubiquity just under the radar.
Since their 2013 independent debut Living Room, the New York trio of brothers—Adam [bass, vocals], Jack [vocals, guitar], and Ryan [ukulele, piano, vocals]—quietly transformed into an international phenomenon. By 2019, the group earned RIAA platinum certifications for breakout singles “I’m Ready” and “Weak” and gold certifications for “Burn The House Down” and “Sober Up” [feat. Rivers Cuomo] as well as for their 2017 sophomore full-length The Click [AJR Productions/S-Curve/BMG]. Not to mention, they generated upwards of 1 billion streams worldwide and 120 million YouTube views for the latter in less than two years. The band also landed two songs, “Burn The House Down” and “Sober Up,” on Billboard’s “Top 10 Alternative Songs of the Year.” Beyond selling over 100,000 tickets for the 2018 Click Tour, they graced the stages of festivals such as Forecastle, Reading, Leeds, and Bumbershoot and have a busy Summer ahead at Bottlerock, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and more. Plus, they garnered features from Time, Nylon, Paper, and Billboard in addition to performing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Good Morning America and TODAY, to name a few.
