R5 are a pop/rock band. The band is a group of siblings born and raised in Littleton, Colorado with their best friend Ellington Ratliff. Together they form R5. Ross plays rhythm guitar, Rocky plays lead guitar, Riker plays bass, Rydel plays keyboard and Ellington plays drums. Ross usually sings lead with his siblings on back-up, but in some songs, Rocky, Riker, Ratliff, or Rydel would take the lead.


They have been performing together since a young age, but Ellington wasn't added to the band until the Lynch family moved to California from Colorado and met him in a dance class in 2009.

Rocky taught Riker and Ross how to play guitar, and also taught Riker how to play bass. Rocky writes and produces a majority of the songs, while Riker co-writes a lot of thm.

R5 performs concerts mostly in California but in May 2012 they went on a West Coast Tour and performed all around the western part of the United States. With Ross being on Austin & Ally, they have gotten a large amount of new fans and new oppurtunities and are now signed with Hollywood Records and have shows planned in the East Coast and in Canada in addition to those in California.

R5 also write and perform music for Austin & Ally on the full tracks, but are however not seen on the show. Though, they are seen in the Heard It On the Radio music video. Two of their original songs, Crazy 4 U and What Do I Have To Do, are available as bonus tracks on the Austin & Ally Soundtrack. They recorded the song "Starting Over" on the Teen Beach 2 (Soundtrack).
