It is not very common to see siblings playing in one band. However, the likes of Johanna and Klara Söderberg, Gregg and Duane Allman (of The Allman Brothers Band), Eddie and Alex Van Halen (of Van Halen), Scott and Seth Avett (of The Avett Brothers), and of course Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met (of the AJR Band) have actually proved that it is still possible to come up with creative musical ideas with our siblings and also share the same livelihood with them.
Ryan Met is a vocalist, keyboardist, trumpeter, ukulele player, and programmer for the Boys band AJR, which derived its name from the first initials of the three brothers. The other members of the band are his biological brothers Adam and Jack Met. Together with his siblings, Ryan has been playing an integral role in the band’s success.
Ryan Met – Bio
Ryan Met was born in Manhattan, New York City, in the United States of America on 3rd March 1994. He is the middle child of his parents – Adam Brett Met (born 1990) is his elder brother while Jack Evan Met (born 1997) is his younger brother. The trio changed their last name from “Metzger” to “Met” for performance purposes.
Since Ryan and his brothers rose to prominence, a lot of their fans have been eager to know more about them but it has not really been easy for them to pull through. This is basically because the siblings are yet to share, in detail, all the necessary information about their history, who their parents are; what they do for a living, and if they have other siblings or not.
As regards Ryans’ education, there are no records anywhere detailing where he had his elementary and high school education and the particular year he graduated.
Ryan Met has been an influential member of the AJR band. He kicked off his career alongside Jack and Adam in 2006 and since then, his passion and hard work have been rewarding. Ryan has recorded and toured many cities with the band, which clearly indicates how relevant he is as a pop singer.
Currently, the pop singer has not publicly declared how much he makes or has made from his music career, instead, Ryan is busy working on how to grow his craft to take AJR to a higher height. Also, the net worth of the New York City-based pop boys band is still under review and not yet publicly known.
