Legendary songwriter and producer Van Dyke Parks has said:


“Bob’s ecumenical approach to music – his understanding of popular idioms, how they are developed and exploited – and his fundamental discipline in literary musical works give him an informed enthusiasm in the focus of songwriting.  Bob Porembski is contributing to our American musical heritage”.


Universal Music songwriter/recording artist, TV composer, performer, music producer and music educator, Bob has taught music business, independent record production and music publishing for over ten years at Mercy College, Queensborough College, and New York University.


He was recently commissioned by Universal Music to write and record a series of new children’s songs.


His song, “Feelin’ More Like Christmas” is an international seasonal TV hit, performed worldwide, that has been featured on the CBS daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless”, USA Networks’ “Twelve Days of Christmas”, BRAVO and the TRIO Network.


Bob has written music for Special Olympics (official theme song, “Take A Hand, Make A Friend”), HBO, Rocher Candy, The Oxygen Network (his song, “Good Morning, I Love You” was featured on the cutting edge comedy, “Good Girls Don’t”).  He has written music for the SPIKE TV mini-series “Invasion Iowa” and his “Jungle Friends”, was featured on The Learning Channel’s award-winning documentary, “The Face of Yulce”.

Because Bob believes strongly in the healing power of music, he performs regularly with his group, “City Rhythm”, (under the auspices of Hospital Audiences, Inc.), bringing rock and roll music to those who would otherwise not be able to experience it.  His experience with the elderly and the infirm has proven to him that rock & roll is the strongest medicine against the assault of age and illness.


As the supervising faculty member of the internship program at Mercy College he regularly acts as mentor to students aspiring to be in the music business.  He believes that “the music business is not learned from a book but from other people in the business.”  Bob is the owner of Robert Porembski Music, a full service music production house in NYC.


“acronym...”, his latest CD production with the rock and roll trio PHAM! has garnered critical acclaim, was nominated for “CD of the Year” and is in rotation on a number of local and international radio stations.  

His current “World Tour” included performances at the famed Cavern Club (birthplace of The Beatles) in Liverpool, England and The Hard Rock Cafe in Boston.


Bob has a Master’s degree in Music Technology from New York University.
