Album Notes
Born in New York City, ROB BERRETTA grew up in Spain and Germany before moving back to his old neighborhood. A frequent performer on Manhattan’s singer-songwriter circuit in the late 80s and early 90s, Rob stopped performing and embarked on a career as a performing arts agent. Returning to his own music in the past few years, Rob has released three albums, Songs from the Big Martin (produced by Mark Lineberry and featuring Cheryl Prashker and Amura Onyaa), Big Questions, Little Answers, and 2012's Burst of Joy!

Living as an ex-patriot gave Rob an opportunity to regard different cultures, including his own, as an outsider, and many of his 300+ songs reflect the critical distance of an observer. His new songs celebrate the joys of travel (Shelter Island, Julie’s Gone to Paris, Starbucks at O’Hare), family (Walk Among Giants, Burst of Joy!), and the struggles and redemptions of love (This Rain, Cocktails By Phone, Handy, Last of the Unrequited). An album of stories, dreams and pursuits of happiness, Burst of Joy! is a mature, realistic look at the trials and triumphs of modern life.
