Robert Lloyd (born June 5 1959, Cannockmarker, Staffordshire) is the lead singer with The Nightingales and formerly with The Prefects. When The Nightingales split in 1986, Lloyd embarked on a solo career, initially signing to In-Tape before signing to Virgin Records in 1989 and releasing the album Me and My Mouth. The album featured Steve Nieve and Pete Thomas (of The Attractions), Andy Scott (of The Sweet) and Craig Gannon (formerly of The Smiths among others), but for the tour to promote the album, Lloyd had to recruit a new band which included former Nightingales guitarist The Tank.

The Nightingales re-formed in 2004. Robert now has a son called Louis and continues to reside in the West Midlands.
