R5 is a melodic pop/rock ensemble from Los Angeles. Formed in 2009, the band features three brothers, guitarist/vocalist Rocky Lynch, guitarist/vocalist Ross Lynch, and bassist/vocalist Riker Lynch, along with keyboardist/vocalist sister Rydel Lynch. Raised in Colorado, the siblings eventually relocated to Los Angeles, where they met drummer Ellington Ratliff, who rounded out the lineup. In 2010, R5 released a debut EP, Ready Set Rock. Of his TV roles, Riker had a recurring role on Fox's Glee, which boosted R5's profile. In spring 2013, R5 released their second EP, Loud, then followed it up soon after with Louder.
