History

The Met brothers initially began writing, producing and mixing their own material in the living room of their Chelsea apartment in Manhattan, New York, focusing on DIY indie pop music. They began performing around 2006, busking in Central Park and Washington Square Park. They began their musical talents when Jack played the harmonica, Ryan played the piano and Adam played the bass. However, currently they play various different instruments. They began by performing covers, but now compose original music influenced by musicians such as the Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel, Vampire Weekend, Jon Bellion, Imagine Dragons, The Beatles, Kanye West, Macklemore, Twenty One Pilots, and fun.

In November 2012, AJR's Ryan Met tweeted a link to a video of their song "I'm Ready" to about 80 celebrities, including Australian singer Sia Furler. Furler told her manager about the song, and he contacted Steve Greenberg, former president of Columbia Records and current CEO and Founder of S-Curve Records. He acts as their co-manager. AJR's debut single, "I'm Ready", which features a sample of SpongeBob SquarePants repeatedly singing his catchphrase, "I'm ready", from the eponymous animated series' premiere episode, was commercially released on August 22, 2013. The song was placed in regular rotation on Sirius XM Radio's Top 20 on 20 and Hits 1 stations, and they performed the song on Good Day New York and VH1's Big Morning Buzz. The official music video for "I'm Ready" premiered on VEVO on October 15, 2013.

AJR joined YouTube on August 20, 2013 and has uploaded Music videos and songs ever since.
