From the battlefields in Iraq to the legendary stage of Radio City Music Hall, the American Hitmen have done it all! Brothers and Marine Corps Combat Veterans, Tim and Dan Cord, founded the band with fellow Marines and musicians in 2005. After serving 4 honorable years and 2 combat tours in Iraq, they decided to leave the Marine Corps to pursue a career in music in 2007. The brothers left the over-saturated Southern California music scene and moved to Utah, where they fell into true harmony with the addition of drummer, Phil Snyder, and bassist, Dave Briggs.
In 2018 Tim Cord parted ways with the band. Phil Snyder discovered new frontman Jake Isaacson playing in a bar in Salt Lake City that fall. A Utah native, Jake moved to LA when he was 17 and played in various bands in Los Angeles, CA for seven years. After playing in every venue his idols rocked, Jake returned home to work in radio and continued to hone his craft. Keeping the American Hitmen tradition alive, the band has since taken the stage for a number of performances together, including an NFL halftime show.
The American Hitmen embody the definition of all things American and Rock ‘n’ Roll!
