Role of the Observer is an American progressive rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The band’s line-up includes Nick Leach (lead guitar, vocals, piano), Tyler Rhodes (guitar, vocals), Max Leach (drums, percussion) and Nate Epperson (bass guitar, samples.)
Founded in 2012, the group has been known to take a conceptual approach to their writing.

Their exceptional musicianship brings the listener across all ranges of rhythms and their shows are an audible special that is sure to keep the listener on their feet.
