“Watching an artist grow as a musician and/or songwriter, capturing his or her body of work,
documenting a piece of history. If I can influence that and the world can hear that artist through
my ears, then I’ll feel like I’ve done something truly great in music.
That’s what I strive for.” – Jim Kaufman, Producer.
