About Jack Antonoff’s Career
The 38-year-old musician is best recognised for his work as a songwriter and producer, though he has also performed in other bands.
As a member of the indie band Steel Train, Jack began his professional career as a performer. The band formed in the mid-1990s while attending Bergen County, New Jersey’s Solomon Schechter Day School. At the time, members Jack and Daniel Silbert were members of Outline, a hardcore band, and Evan Winiker and Matt Goldman were members of Random Task, a punk band. They formed Steel Train in 2002 when their separate bands disbanded.
In 2003, the band signed with Drive Thru Records/MCA and released For You My Dear, their debut EP.
Jack formed the indie rock band Fun with Nate Ruess and Andrew Dost while performing with Steel Train. Aim and Ignite was released in 2009, followed by Some Nights in 2012. They were named Best New Artist at the 2013 Grammy Awards, as well as Song of the Year for their song “We Are Young.”
Despite critical acclaim, Fun disbanded in 2015, and Jack turned his attention to Bleachers. In February 2014, the band released their first song, “I Want to Get Better,” ahead of the release of their debut album, Strange Desire, in July of that year.
Bleachers’ studio albums Gone Now and Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night were released in 2017 and 2021, respectively, and they are currently on the Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night Tour.
Steel Train’s Jack remained a member until the band disbanded in 2013. The band published the albums Twilight Tales from the Prairies of the Sun (2005), Trampoline (2007), and Steel Train throughout their decade together (2010).
In 2016, he received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year for his work on Taylor Swift’s 1989, and in 2019, he got the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for St. Vincent’s “Masseduction.”
In 2021, Jack added to his Grammy collection by winning the Award of the Year for Taylor’s album, Folklore. Then, in 2022, the native of New Jersey took home the award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.
After less than a year of dating, the “I Miss Those Days” singer appears to be engaged to actress Margaret Qualley. The 27-year-old actress ignited engagement speculations when she was seen wearing a diamond ring at the Cannes Film Festival screening of her film, Stars at Noon, on May 25.
On May 31, she appeared to confirm the rumours by posting a selfie of herself and Jack on Instagram, which prominently featured the diamond ring. “Oh, how I adore him!” Margaret drew three photographs and wrote alongside them.
