Rob Rokicki is a New York based writer and composer/lyricist whose songs “live at that perfect intersection of musical theatre and radio rock” (Adam Gwon).  Rob wrote the music, lyrics and co-orchestrated the Broadway show The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical (book by Joe Tracz). The show was nominated for Lortel, Off-Broadway Alliance, and three Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical, before touring across North America.  The original cast recording had the highest pre-sale in Broadway Records history and the show is licensed globally.

Driven by a relentless desire to collaborate, discover & create, Rob is currently developing a wide range of diverse, accessible projects including:
