Rob Lea is a talented, solo, singer/guitarist from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Rob has been performing in the area for over 7 years now and has a reputation for being one of the shining lights in the local music scene. As well as performing locally, Rob also has experience playing gigs all over Europe with his band The Four Kicks – a Kings of Leon tribute band, which he formed due to the uncanny, vocal similarity he bares to the lead singer Caleb.
Rob’s voice has also been likened to other, successful, male artists such as Paolo Nutini – perhaps due to the husky tones both singers possess.
