It’s not very common to see siblings playing in a band. However, people like 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 band AJR) have actually proven that it’s always possible to come up with creative musical ideas with our siblings and share the same breadwinner with them.
Ryan Met is a singer, keyboardist, trumpeter, ukulele player and programmer of the group Boys AJR, which takes its name from the first initials of the three brothers. The other members of the group are his biological brothers Adam and Jack Met. Along with his siblings, Ryan has been integral to the band’s success.
Ryan Met – Bio
Ryan Met was born in Manhattan, New York City, in the United States of America on March 3, 1994. He is the middle child of his parents – Adam Brett Met (b. 1990) is his older brother while Jack Evan Met (born in 1997) is his younger brother. The trio changed their last name from “Metzger” to “Met” for performance purposes.
Ever since Ryan and his brothers rose to prominence, a lot of their fans were eager to know more about them, but it hasn’t really been easy for them to pull through. It is basically because the siblings have not yet shared, in detail, all the necessary information about their history, who their parents are; what they do for a living and whether they have other siblings or not.
As for education at Ryans, there are no records detailing where he received his primary and secondary education and the particular year he graduated.
Ryan Met was an influential member of the AJR Group. He started his career alongside Jack and Adam in 2006 and since then his passion and hard work has 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 stated how much he earns or has earned from his music career, instead Ryan is busy developing his craft to take AJR to a higher height. Also, the New York-based pop boy band’s net worth is still under scrutiny and not yet known to the public.
