Comprised of three New York City-based brothers - Adam, Jack and Ryan Mat (their initials provide the act's name) - AJR first gained attention with "I'm Ready," a DIY electro-pop tune that has garnered over 18 million YouTube views and 44 million Spotify streams from the time it debuted in late 2013. In the years since then, the boy-ish band with genuine instrumental chops and major social media skills has become one to watch. AJR's latest single "Weak," from their EP, What Everyone's Thinking, is racing past two million YouTube views and over 30 million Spotify streams.
After touring with the likes of Demi Lovato, Train and Andy Grammer, AJR won many thousands of new fans as the opening act for Ingrid Michaelson's 2016 American tour (see the slideshow for pics from a date in Washington, D.C., which won them a standing ovation). Adam is the bassist and singer, Ryan plays keys and ukulele and is responsible for much of the writing and production for the band. Jack is the frenetic frontman, known for his furry hat and boundless onstage energy.
On Feb. 22, the trio began their first American headlining tour, bringing their contagious enthusiasm and joyful, singalong melodies to 15 major markets across the country. The full tour dates are below; for ticket information, visit ajrbrothers.com.
