Name:Leighton Kent
Birthdate:Sep 30
Location:From Australia to, New York, United States of America
Website:@ Dream Like New York

Leighton Craig Kent was born and bred on a sheep and cattle station in the outback of New South Wales Australia. Their closest town is the country music capital of Australia, Tamworth, and Leighton was raised with a love of country music. His father was a hard working farmer, making a living with their farm, and Leighton grew up surrounded by milking cows, sheering sheep, and riding horses. Like his father, Leighton's mother also works hard on the farm, and because their nearest town is quite a drive away, they only make the trip once a week to stock up on groceries, otherwise they live off the land. The town has an all year round dessert heat, and the farm has been in the family for generations. They don't really know anything but country living and Leighton is every bit the typical country boy. He is one of four children with an older brother and sister, and a younger brother, all of whom have worked on the farm and helped out from the minute they were old enough to understand. They know hardship and working hard to make ends meet, and they nearly lost everything a few years back in a terrible drought that plagued Australia.

Leighton adores the life he was raised into, and the day he was born, out in a paddock when his mum drove a tractor right up until she went into labour. He can sheer sheep and milk cows, but his true loves are really music and horse riding. Still, he was a bit of a rebel, but nothing destructive like his older brother, who ended up in jail after getting involved in drugs when he moved to Sydney and never truly had the love of the land the rest of the family had. Leighton hasn't spoken to his brother since he got arrested, and never plans on speaking to him again. He would gladly have the farm passed to him, but his folks always recognised the true musical talent he had in him. When an X-Factor style talent show kicked off in Australia, they were behind him 100% when they travelled to Tamworth for him to audition, where he sung Never Tear Us Apart by INXS. He got through, and ended up going all the way, where he, along with four other guys from around Australia (Axel Beckett, Chase Walker, Lance Valentine and Jasper Cho), were hand-picked by the judges to form a new Aussie boy band called Electricks.

It was a shock to Leighton's system, to say the least. Never having really been to the city in his life, it took some getting used to, but he had a priceless friendship with all the other lads in the band from day one. They were like brothers, and even though they were all very different, they just gelled and their popularity kicked off, taking Australia by storm. It was when international popstar, Angel Shaw wanted them as his supporting act for his six month around-the-world tour that things really exploded for them. In fact, their success came so hard and fast, they signed with a new PR firm in New York, Lewis & Co, headed by Aiden Lewis-Preston, and the band now need to uproot to base themselves in New York. They have been given an awesome apartment in New York City to live together, and have the world at their feet.

Leighton is, without a doubt, a bit of a player and a ladies man. He can smooth-talk his way into what he wants and even living out in the middle of nowhere, he still wasn't short dates or romantic prospects. He likes drinking and smoking and partying, and of course, a lot of sex. It was like winning the lottery when he joined the band, but he also can have a broody side, especially when the homesickness sets in. He was probably more the loner of the group, and the dark horse, but he loves the guys like brothers and even though he's a long way from home and a long way from what he was raised as, he's taking every minute for what it is. However, you can take the boy out of the country, but you can never take the country out of the boy, and he is affectionately nicknamed 'Cowboy' by not only his band mates, but his fans at large.
