Adam, Jack and Ryan Met, whose combined first initials make up the band name AJR, are Columbia University students weekdays and pop stars the rest of the time.
In 2005, the brothers started making music together in their family’s living room in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Soon, they were performing in Washington Square Park.
They made enough money busking to buy their own recording equipment, which they have since used to make three albums, the latest of which, “Neotheater,” was released last month.
Adam, 28, who plays the bass, is also a Ph.D. candidate in international human rights law at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. This year, he has been on a yearlong fellowship at Columbia, and lives with his girlfriend in Chelsea.
Ryan, 25, and Jack, 21, who handle keyboard and guitar, are both undergraduate students and roommates. They live near Columbia with their Bouvier puppy, Shay.
SLOW START Ryan: When we’re on tour we wake up every day at 5 a.m., so when we’re here we like to sleep in. We’ll sleep till like 10:30, then we always go to brunch at this good place called Community right near Columbia. I go for the huevos rancheros. Jack: They have the best French toast with maple butter. Ryan: What we also love about Community is that, unlike with most New York restaurants, there’s no bad seats. It’s a great place to go if you want to start your day off right. Adam: I tend to get up earlier than that, probably around 9. I’m a big fan of Seamless, so I order in. It’s usually ramen. I love Asian food. I don’t eat breakfast food.
PICTURE THIS Ryan: After we eat, we all meet up at our apartment uptown. Now that we’re done with the album we’re working on the tour. Jack: We have a lot of theatrical flourishes and moments that are beyond explaining. On our last tour, we basically had this pyramid of light-up boxes that was about 20 feet high. It created this kind of musical, audiovisual Blue Man Group look. That all needs to be conceptualized by us. Ryan: Basically, we break out the white board and work through what we need to work through. Jack: We probably spend about three hours or so doing that. It’s intense.
OTHER PROJECTS Jack: When we part ways is a really an important moment. Music is No. 1 for us, but we all realize it’s really important to take a break, daily, and focus on something else. That’s pretty much the main reason Ryan and I decided to keep studying film — you have to have this moment of the day where you completely forget about the music. Then you can come back to it with a fresh mind. Ryan and I will start writing a paper about a film or we’ll write a scene for a movie. Adam goes back downtown.
COLUMBIA MEETS HARVARD Adam: One of the best places I’ve found in New York is the Harvard Club. My girlfriend belongs there. It’s a great place to get schoolwork done and have meetings. I do advocacy work at the United Nations — I’m developing a film festival for them that will happen in September. So that’s something I normally do on weekends, meet there with different people to help put together these films.
FRIENDLY COMPETITION Ryan: We do schoolwork for maybe an hour or two. Then we’ve had enough working for the day, so me and Jack go to Lerner Hall, this building at Columbia that has an air hockey table in it. It’s a little-known gem. Jack: Ryan and I use air hockey as a perfect way to make bets. Whoever loses has to pay for the next meal, for all three brothers. Ryan: Jack is absolutely better than me at most sports, including air hockey. But it’s a good competition. We get way into it. We become a little ferocious and scary.
FISHY BUSINESS Ryan: Dinner after air hockey is always sushi. I think that’s our favorite food in general. Jack: We go to the same sushi place, this place called Nikko right around the corner from our apartment. It’s just regular New York sushi, and Adam comes up and mooches off us. My girlfriend comes too. We always get octopus. We tried it once, tested the waters, and we didn’t get sick so we thought, Let’s keep doing this. Adam: I’m a big fan of the salmon roe. You either love it or you hate it.
MISS THE PARENTS Jack: By then it’s about 8 or 8:30, and sometimes Ryan and I will run home and work on an idea for the tour we talked about with Adam at dinner, or we’ll watch a comedy movie, just something fun, and go to sleep. I’m guessing we’re in bed at 11 or 11:30. Adam: For me, Sunday night is for watching TV. All my favorite shows are on: “Game of Thrones,” “Succession” and “Billions.” They’re all great shows. Ryan: We pretty much never see our parents. We try but we fail every Sunday.
