Lobo, pseudonimo di Roland Kent Lavoie (Tallahassee, 31 luglio 1943), è un cantautore e compositore statunitense che ebbe successo negli anni 70, con diversi singoli quali: Me and You and a Dog Named Boo, I'd Love You to Want Me e Don't Expect Me To Be Your Friend. Lobo vive in Florida con sua moglie Susie dopo essere tornato negli anni 2000 dall'Asia dove aveva una casa discografica poi fallita dopo la crisi che negli anni '90 coinvolse la regione.
