John Torres - Bass

John Torres is the founding member of The Way Back Machine. His five-year search to assemble the perfect match of musical talent, common interests, and camaraderie has culminated in the current lineup.

A late bloomer in the world of “gigging” bands, John has been, however, fortunate enough to have performed with dozens of major rock artists including Jack Bruce, Gary Hoey, Alan White, John Popper, Joe Vitale, Mark Farner, and Warren Haynes.

Additional musical accomplishments include international, award-winning music videos; written, produced, and directed by John.

John Torres is semi-retired and currently splitting his time between the San Gabriel Valley and the wilds of North Carolina.
