New Jersey-native and three-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician and producer Jack Antonoff is the creative force behind indie-pop band Bleachers. The New York Times called their second album Gone Now, released in June, “anthemic life-affirming pop-rock” with NME awarding it a coveted 4-star review. These will be Bleachers first ever Australian shows and audience’s first chance to see one of the most in-demand collaborative musicians play live. The video for acclaimed lead single ‘Don’t Take the Money’ which features Antonoff playing a clueless groom was directed by Antonoff’s long-term partner and HBO’s Girls creator Lena Dunham.
An esteemed writer and creative mind among his peers, Antonoff’s has collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world to write some of the biggest hits of the year. Called “your favourite pop star’s secret weapon” by Pitchfork, he most recently paired up with New Zealand superstar Lorde to write her critically acclaimed new album Melodrama, including the huge single ‘Green Light’. He has worked with Taylor Swift over the last four years, most recently to co-write six songs on her Reputation album, including the history making lead single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. With other recent collaborators including St Vincent, Sia, Grimes and Charlie XCX, it’s easy to see why Antonoff is just about the most in-demand producer and musician of our time.
