Patti Rothberg (born May 4, 1972) is a New York-based singer, songwriter, recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, and painter/artist.

Born in New York City, Rothberg grew up in Scarsdale, NY, playing piano from the age of 3 and writing songs by the age of 15, joining a high school Rod Stewart cover band.

Rothberg played all the guitar and bass parts on her debut album, Between the 1 and the 9, which was released on April 2, 1996. The album went on to sell over 250,000 copies in the US and another 200,000 in Europe and Japan. The first single, "Inside", reached number 25 on Billboard's Alternative Songs Chart.[1]

During this time, two of Rothberg's songs appeared in film: a cover of "Kung Fu Fighting" in Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) and "Inside" in The Misadventures of Margaret (1998).

Rothberg's third album, Double Standards, was released by indie label Megaforce on May 13, 2008. The release show was at the Blender Theater in NYC on May 22, 2008.
