There is no band, no song, no video, no sound, that is more “now” than AJR. The band — three brothers born and raised in New York City — has achieved a startling quick level of success with “I’m Ready,” a buoyant electro-pop single that’s taking off on social media. The numbers: over 10 Million views on YouTube, Gold record in the USA and Double Platinum Internationally, features in Billboard, the NY Post, and on MTV. Festival performances in front of 10,000+ people. They have also performed on the Today Show, X-Factor, Kelly and Michael and many other national television shows.
More amazing? They’ve done this all on their own. No pop svengali overseeing their work. No studio musicians filling in the blanks. No Max Martin co-write. AJR may, in fact, be the first indie, DIY pop group from New York to make a splash. They’re certainly the only group that’s done while writing, recording and producing all their own songs in their Chelsea living room.
With his ability to seamlessly blur the lines between pop, hip-hop, electronic and soul, Quinn XCII has quickly paved his own lane with his unique sound. He released his debut album, The Story of Us, in September 2017 via Columbia Records. The album debuted at #6 on the iTunes Pop Chart and is led by the standout single "Straightjacket", which has accumulated more than 100 million streams to date and been Certified Gold in the US by the RIAA. He released his sophomore album From Michigan With Love in early 2019. The 12-track album features collaborations with Jon Bellion, Elohim, Yoshi Flower, Noah Kahan, Ashe and Louis Futon and serves as a deeper dive into who he is as an artist, while therapeutically unleashing his inner thoughts and battles with anxiety and mental health into his music.
In 2020, Quinn XCII is set to have his biggest year yet as he recently achieved a spot in Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough Artists. He kicked off the year with the release of his new single “Two 10s.” The track is the first taste of his upcoming third album, which is set for release later this year on Columbia Records. The album will also feature previously released single “Stacy,” which has accumulated over 40M streams to date.
Over the last 5 years, Quinn XCII has consistently grown his audience and expanded his crowd, currently drawing over 7 Million monthly listeners on Spotify and accumulating over 1.2 billion streams worldwide. He has played major music festivals across the globe including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and many more, and has sold out 4 consecutive nationwide headline tours since 2017, selling over 80,000 total tickets in the US alone.
Quinn XCII has also been featured on Gryffin’s “Winnebag,” Phoebe Ryan’s “Middle Finger,” Louis The Child’s “The City” and MAX’s “Love Me Less”, which reached #17 at US Top 40 radio.
