AJR Releasing Debut Album September 30

unnamed (3)

 “‘I’m Ready,'” which melds the brothers’ love of Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel harmonies with more contemporary electro-pop influences like fun. and Imagine Dragons, is quickly becoming a bona fide hit.” – Billboard

Emerging pop trio AJR, who is on the verge of becoming one of the biggest and brightest new bands of 2014, will release their full-length debut Living Room on September 30 (AJR Productions/Warner Bros. Records). The 13-track album, which was written, recorded and produced by the band themselves in the living room of their New York City apartment, will feature the hit single “I’m Ready,” an infectious track that is rapidly climbing the Top 40 charts, currently at #29 with over 375k singles sold and 3.75 million YouTube views. AJR is set to appear on NBC’s The Today Show on July 29.

AJR’s NYC-bred Met brothers – Adam (bass/vocals), a 23-year old Columbia graduate, Ryan (guitar/piano/vocals), a bespectacled 20-year old Columbia student who serves as the band’s main songwriter, and Jack (vocals/guitar), the 16-year old force-de-nature who splits time between lead vocals and attending high school in NYC – have seen a meteoric rise in the past year following the self-release of a 5-song EP. Billboard favorably compared the band to the Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel (for the harmonies), Fun. and Imagine Dragons (for the electro-pop influences), while New York Post praised their “sticky-sweet pop melodies with vintage barber shop vocals [and] edgier electronic samples and ‘spokestep’ [aka dubstep breakdowns derived from vocals].”

The viral success of “I’m Ready” won over early champions including SiriusXM – who added the song the day it was released on iTunes – , iHeartRadio, VH1 “Big Morning Buzz,” Billboard and NBC, who featured the song in their Olympic promos. Just last year they opened shows for the likes of The Wanted and Demi Lovato, and recently wrapped a nationwide tour supporting Lindsey Stirling.

AJR got their musical start as kids busking in Central Park and Washington Square, singing Jackson 5 covers, and, later, their own material. They used their earnings to buy musical equipment which they set up in their parents’ living room, where they write, record and produce all of their own music to this day.
