Jack Antonoff is a four-time Grammy®Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, as well as the creative force behind Bleachers. After serving as lead guitarist in multi-platinum band fun., Antonoff launched his solo project Bleachers in 2014 with the critically acclaimed debut album Strange Desire. The album found him setting emotional meditations on anxiety, depression, and loss against a backdrop of earworm melodies and massive choruses on songs like the gold-certified “I Wanna Get Better” (which topped Billboard’s Alternative chart) and the #3 Alternative radio hit “Rollercoaster.” Antonoff toured the world for a year and a half in support of Strange Desire, building a cult fan base for his cathartic, suburban influenced anthems. In 2017 Bleacher’s released their critically acclaimed sophomore album Gone Now, via RCA Records.
In addition to his work with Bleachers, Antonoff is an in-demand songwriter and producer for other artists, including Taylor Swift, Lorde, St. Vincent, Zayn, Sia, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sara Bareilles, Tegan & Sara, Kevin Abstract, Troye Sivan and Grimes. He also founded and curated the annual “Shadow of the City” music festival, which takes place in Antonoff’s home state of New Jersey in the parking lot of the Asbury Park Stone pony.
