ABOUT PATTI ROTHBERG
Patti Rothberg’s recording career goes back to 1996, with her debut on EMI Records, ‘Between the 1 and the 9’, which refers to the time she spent performing in New York City’s 14th Street subway station. The title track relates some of her experiences, when EMI executive discovered Patti performing there. Seemingly overnight, Patti Rothberg achieved the kind of worldwide success one could only dream of. Critically acclaimed, Between the 1 and the 9 was an instant hit, and remains a timeless classic. The success of Between the 1 and the 9 had Patti touring quite non-stop from 1996 through 1997, and into 1998. She toured the USA supporting the Wallflowers, Chris Isaak, Midnight Oil, and Garbage, and she toured Europe supporting the Black Crowes. Patti and her band performed on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

A cover of “Kung Fu Fighting” was featured in the 1997 release of Beverly Hills Ninja, and her song “Forgive Me” was featured in the 1998 film The Misadventures of Margaret.
