Fans of Disney Channel's film “Teen Beach Movie” and TV series “Austin & Ally” may find a familiar face in Ross Lynch. Although Lynch’s acting career has raised R5’s profile considerably, this young group has been at it since 2009
and signed to Hollywood Records in April 2012. R5 consists of four siblings originally from Littleton, Colo., Ross Lynch (lead vocals/guitar), brothers Rocky Lynch (guitar/vocals) and Riker Lynch (bass/vocals), sister Rydel Lynch (keyboards/vocals), and best friend Ellington Ratliff (drums) who they met at a dance studio after relocating to Los Angeles. R5’s sound is fun and energetic with infectious pop beats and catchy melodies -- or as R5 promotes, the type of music you blast with the top down on a warm summer night. Their debut studio album Louder charted at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 and peaked at No. 2 on iTunes Pop chart in September 2013. The 11-track album includes the popular four tracks from their previous Loud EP as well as the lead single “Pass Me By.” Quickly becoming a Radio Disney favorite, fans have secured tickets to R5’s Dancing Out My Pants Tour and concertgoers are rewarded with exuberant pop performances. R5 will embark on their R5 Rocks the World Tour in 2014.
