ABOUT AMERICAN AUTHORS:
American Authors – Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums) – hail from the four corners of the U.S. but came together at Boston’s Berklee College of Music in 2006. They soon left Berklee, moved into a small apartment in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, and started a band, releasing a series of indie EPs over the course of five years. After lighting up SiriusXM Alt Nation radio with their debut #1 single “Believer” and attracting (what became) over 8 million YouTube views for the viral “Believer” video they created with their cell phones, they were signed to Island Records in 2012. With the success of the inescapable and instantly recognizable “Best Day Of My Life,” their debut LP Oh, What A Life went Top 5 on the Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts, Top 15 on the Billboard 200, and was RIAA certified gold. “Best Day Of My Life” was a 3x-platinum career-defining track that went on to reach #1 on Hot AC and Top 5 at Pop while receiving countless film, television, video game, and sports syncs. Their second album, 2016’s What We Live For included “What We Live For,” “Grow,” and the sync friendly hit “Go Big or Go Home.
