Welcome to The Backliners’ page.

We are three full-time LA session musicians who have created two unique services: a rhythm section for hire and a band coaching and development program.

The Backliners members have toured nationally, performed on various TV shows such as the Tonight Show, studied with the greatest musicians in the world, recorded dozens of albums, performed in music videos, played to crowds of over 10,000 people... and are very nice, down to earth guys. :-)

Please check out our audio and video samples to get a feel for our playing. We look forward to hearing from you!
