Rob Picazo is a Rhythm & Blues singer and guitarist born in Madrid to a Spanish father and English mother. Rob moved to the UK in 2007 and settled in the South East, immersing himself in the country’s rich musical landscape. After a few years of musical soul-searching, he found… soul. British musicians like Peter Green and Steve Winwood first brought the Blues to his attention, before R&B musicians and Soul pioneers like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Solomon Burke, and Ernie K-Doe (if we kept naming, we’d be here all day) convinced him this was the path to take.

 

Following a style championed by legendary songwriter, Dan Penn, Rob combines soulful vocals, sharp lyrics and bluesy melodies, whilst drawing on themes and sounds from Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans. He has played all over the world and opened for some of the best musicians on the international Blues circuit, including Dom Pipkin, Martin Harley and Brooks Williams. His debut album, Spanish Moss was released to acclaim in September 2017.
