The brand new anthemic Rock single by Rob Lea is finally OUT NOW on all streaming platforms. After delivering a good dose of Summer bliss with Summer in the Morning, Rob now gives us a fierce, nostalgic hit of energy and empowerment with Freak.
Rising star Rob Lea returns with his nostalgic rock and roll influenced single ‘FREAK’ this September.
Multi-faceted talent Rob Lea has unveiled his ecletic new single ‘FREAK’. Opening with a ferocious guitar lick, shimmering instrumentation and warped effects the track reveals a sure-fire and fierce affair from Rob Lea. An oddyssey of exquisite vocals, lively lyrics and elevating, blues-tinged soundboards reveal a track that is dinctinctly pleasing for rock fans and listeners alike.
“This song is all about celebrating what makes you slightly different from the “Norm.” It’s about sticking a middle finger up at anyone who says you are less than perfect.” - Rob Lea
ABOUT ROB LEA
Rob’s love for music was apparent from a very early age. The youngest of 5 children, Rob came to life when the opportunity arose to perform either at home or at school. Rob credits his music teachers throughout his school years for introducing him to instruments and believing in his talent, which inspired Rob to take up violin, guitar, piano, drums and even trumpet, for which he became the lead player in Blackpool Orchestra.
Following a year working as a performer in Benidorm and returning to the UK to study performing arts, Rob joined local rock band Black Pearl. It was his first experience being the frontman in a band and made him realise it was where he truly felt he could connect best with an audience.
Later, Rob joined tribute act bands for Take That and Queen. Having the opportunity to combine his two favourite things, acting and music, Rob found his footing. Rob set up his own Queen tribute band which has gone on to perform internationally at some of the world’s most prestigious venues. At the height of the business for the Queen tribute after many years of hard work, Rob signed a 5 year deal with a booker in the USA and then the pandemic hit. Overnight his work disappeared and he struggled to make ends meet during this difficult period. This is when Rob decided for the first time in a long time, to write his own music. When things opened back up and the Queen tribute could perform once again, Rob performed parts of his own music at his shows and received overwhelming support from his fans. This spurred Rob on to officially release his debut single ‘Reflection’ in April 2022.
‘FREAK’ is set OUT NOW on all streaming platforms.
