Bridge Records, Inc. was founded in 1981 by David Starobin. Starobin was soon joined in the company by his wife, Becky Starobin, now Bridge’s President. The Starobins' son, Robert, joined the firm shortly after completing graduate studies at New York University. Rob currently heads the company's digital distribution and operations. Writing of his motivation for founding Bridge, David Starobin cited “the need to create a wide-ranging forum for repertoire and performance- a home for the exceptionally interesting and challenging personality- performer and composer alike.” Now in its 40th year of operations, Bridge has earned 37 Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations, and hundreds of awards and citations from publications across the globe. Bridge has maintained its offices in New Rochelle, NY since 1996.
