The series' pilot episode featured the group's first promotional single, "Big Time Rush". They have released 3 studio albums which all achieved high success.
After the release of additional television films and their soundtracks in 2010, Lovato's personal issues put her career on hiatus and ended Sonny with a Chance after its second season. Her third album, Unbroken, addresses several of her difficulties.
Two years after releasing his last single, Chance is set to release his second studio album, Planet X, in 2015. The debut single from the album, Thrilla in Manila was released on August 11, 2014.
Their debut album Suddenly Yours was released in October 2010 and peaked at number 197 on the Billboard 200. In September 2011, Zach, Cameron, and Michael released their second studio album entitled All the Way. All the Way peaked at 49 on the Billboard 200, a considerable improvement from their first album.
On August 4, 2013, the band went on indefinite hiatus.
Their first single after being signed, "Chloe," was released on April 15, 2013, and their debut album, entitled Nothing to Lose, was released on July 30, 2013.
Their achievements include five Brit Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, eleven MTV Europe Music Awards, and nineteen Teen Choice Awards out of nineteen nominations, among many others. According to Nick Gatfield, the chairman and chief executive of Sony Music Entertainment UK, One Direction represented a $50 million business empire by June 2012. They were proclaimed 2012's "Top New Artist" by Billboard.
She starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie Lemonade Mouth, in which her character Olivia performs numerous songs. Two singles were released from the soundtrack featuring her vocals, with both charting on the US Billboard Hot 100. In 2012, Mendler released her debut album Hello My Name Is..., which featured a pop sound. It debuted at number 30 on the US Billboard 200, and has sold over 200,000 copies.
“Our basic mindset was that we wanted to make everyone feel excited and happy,” says Riker Lynch of the new EP. “It’s about driving down the highway with the top down and blasting music. We didn’t want anything too deep and dark.”
Bright and sunny is more like it. To perfect their sound, R5 worked with producer-songwriters Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou (Selena Gomez, Hot Chelle Rae) and Evan “Kidd” Bogart, who won a Grammy for writing the Beyonce hit, “Halo.” The team wrote three tracks for the band while R5 members Riker and Ross contributed an original.
The 4-song EP covers a lot of musical ground, starting with the heart-stopping title track. The doo-wop-influenced rocker “I Want You Bad” tackles the theme of longing for someone else’s girlfriend, while “Fallin’ For You” counts off the reasons why that one special girl is so special. The up-tempo ballad “Here Comes Forever,” written by Riker and Rocky, riffs on a score of clever movie references to sum up the perfect romance.
At the end of a typical rom-com, the heroes usually walk into the sunset. But now is a time of sunrise for R5, undisputedly the teen band to watch in 2013.
If Riker and Ross look familiar, it’s because the former is a regular on “Glee” (as a member of the a cappella group, the Warblers) while Ross stars in the Disney Channel Original smash hit series, “Austin & Ally.” Each band member is a virtuoso musician and all write, especially lead guitarist Rocky and bassist Riker, who serve as R5’s in-house songwriters.
The R5 story actually begins in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colo. There, as a child, Riker got things started when he revealed a talent for singing. With Elvis, the Beatles and the Stones playing in background, soon Riker and his siblings started taking music seriously.
Once they set on a show business career, the entire family moved to Los Angeles in 2007. The Lynch kids experienced success quickly, finding professional acting, dance and commercial opportunities.
Though the Lynchs had their musical act down, something was missing: a drummer. That’s when they turned to friend Ellington Ratliff, who rounded out the line-up. “Being an only child, the Lynchs are my second family,” Ratliff says. “I get the best of both worlds: my own family and then this huge family.”
Though no one would fail to see the family resemblance among the Lynch siblings, each is unique. “Rydel is the giggly innocent,” says Ross of his sister. “The fans love her and the girls look up at her. Yet she’s also one of the boys.” Says Rocky of lead singer Ross, “He’s good at everything and he knows it. He’s the most confident kid.”
All agree Riker is the “captain of the ship,” Ratliff the funny one and Rocky the best composer. As the only girl in the group, keyboard player Rydel says she’s having the time of her life. “Ratliff and my brothers are the best,” she says, adding with a laugh, “but I usually get my way.”
For much of 2012, the band honed its performing chops, headlining club shows in Chicago, Phoenix, Toronto, New York, New Jersey and beyond. “There’s something cool that happens when we’re on stage together,” Riker says. “There’s nothing more fun in the world. We try to be very personable, and meet the entire audience after shows. Fans you meet on the road stick with you forever.”
After a lifetime of prep, it’s time for R5 to bring it. The band members say they are more than ready, and feel confident their new EP will impress. All fans have to do is turn it up loud. How’s that sound?
