Growing up with a strongly-rooted musical theatre background, Rocky has been and continues to work as an actor in and out of New York. It wasn’t until just a few years ago that he began crafting his passion for songwriting. In addition to writing for himself, he finds extreme fulfillment in writing for other artists.
Rocky’s debut EP “Thoughts from the A Train” is a concept album in that every song in some way was written during his time commuting on the New York City subways.
His new album Naughty List is an original holiday pop album inspired by his love of the holidays and extreme love of contemporary holiday music by artists such as Mariah Carey, Sia, and Kelly Clarkson. This album features music, lyrics, and vocals by Rocky Paterra as well as features from Dan Kiernan, Zoe Jensen, Rosanna Spindler, and Emily Willmore.
Rocky’s sound is influenced by artists such as Charlie Puth, Superfruit, Bruno Mars, and more. They’re fun. He’s fun. The music is fun...unless it gets serious. Then it’s serious! But it’s mostly fun!
