Rob Lea has just passed a huge milestone on his campaign to take on the Official Charts with his Debut Album by hitting the half way point on his financial target. With a whopping £5000 now raised and almost 1000 albums ordered, Rob is starting to create momentum on what could be an incredible introduction for this brand new artist.
Rob Lea is one step closer to chart success
Last year, Rob set out an incredibly ambitious goal of getting his debut album into the Official Top 40 Charts. Taking inspiration from the success of chart topping Indie artists such as The Reytons and The Lottery Winners, Rob set his goals high and has been rallying his growing fan base for the past number of months to get behind his Crowdfund campaign.
As we enter the New Year, Rob has just announced he has passed the halfway mark to reaching his financial target by raising a whopping £5000.
I'm over the moon with the support for the album. Reaching the halfway point is a huge milestone as the money raised will pay for the studio time to produce the album. There is nothing going to stop me getting this album out to my fans and it's an album I am already so proud of.
Rob is hoping to represent his home town of Blackpool by joining a select list of musical artists to make a name for themselves, such as Jethro Tull, Robert Smith, Alfie Boe and many more before and after. Rob showcased a number of songs in the Summer of 2023 to a Live Audience of Blackpool residents, kick starting his campaign at Blackpool's iconic Stanley Park Bandstand.

More exciting announcements from Rob Lea
Rob has been working hard on pushing his Debut Album forward and recently we got a glimpse at the Artwork for the album. With the help of renowned photographer Colin Boulter, (Neilson Greeves Photography) and in collaboration with The Foundry Film Studios, Rob has created 4 pieces of artwork which interconnect to create one beautiful piece of landscape Art. Each piece telling a story and depicting the journey Rob has travelled through his career.
Rob is currently offering huge discounts on multiple album purchases to encourage more people to buy more versions of the album.
The whole idea behind Indie Crowdfunds like this is to encourage people to buy physical copies of a CD. In a world where most people don't have a CD player, it's such a hard task. But this is how indie artists like me are beating the system. For every CD bought, I'd have to get 1000 people listening to my music on Spotify for it to have the same value in the Charts. So 1000 CDs is the same as 1 million streams!
The message is clear around the Indie music scene. The only way to support artists like Rob Lea is through physical purchases of CDs and Merchandise and it seems like Rob may have the support he needs from his years of entertaining residents around the UK with his world renowned Queen Tribute Band, Majesty.
