While the indie pop band BLEACHERS is Jack Antonoff's main vehicle for recording and performing the music he writes and records, and he had big hits while a member of the alternative band Fun, a good measure of his success these days comes from a more behind-the-scenes role. He is a co-writer with, and record producer for some of the biggest names in the business like Taylor Swift, Lorde, Sia, The Chicks, St. Vincent, Lana Del Rey, Clairo, Olivia Rodrigo and Carly Rae Jepson.
