Patti Rothberg (born May 4, 1972) is a singer-songwriter and painter.

Born in New York City, Rothberg grew up in Scarsdale, New York, 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[citation needed] and another 200,000 in Europe and Japan.[citation needed] The first single, "Inside", reached number 25 on the Billboard magazine Alternative 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 New York City on May 22, 2008.
