About Ron Kauffman

"My Bio"


I usually say, "Simple put, I'm a songwriter". I have a very hard time writing a bio because I tend to write my life in songs. If there's something people want to know about me, they need only listen to my music. To me, what I've been and done in the past isn't that interesting, but I suppose the things I've done and been through have made me what I am today. My influences are very apparent, CSNY, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Simon and Garfunkel...etc. However, even though they were huge influences, I've spent my entire life trying to be myself, and I believe that stands out in my music. I don't write what's typical, I refuse to write what others think I should, and say I need to write to be accepted in the industry. If acceptance means being something I'm not, then I'll pass on being accepted.


I spent twenty years of my life performing live. I've played in the worst venues and some of the best. I've performed for large crowds at festivals, and no crowds in local bars! No matter where I performed or for how many, I always did the best I could to make those listening have an enjoyable experience. When my children were born, I decided to put my dreams of success aside until they were grown. Twelve years ago, I restarted my attempt at success, only this time I was determined to do it as a "songwriter", instead of a "singer/songwriter" After twelve years of chasing what I've deemed an impossible goal in an industry so hung up on "safety", meaning the powers that be fear change so much, they refuse to open their ears to the incredible music being created by "Indie artists", I've decided to go Indie myself. and perform my own music once again. At sixty-two years of age, I've had plenty of people tell me I'm crazy, but since I already knew that, why should I listen to them. I started out as a single artist, and I've decided to finish my life the same way!


I don't know if what I have to say through music means anything to anyone else in the world, but I do believe I have something to say and my hope is that I can say it in such a way that someone, somewhere, will get it, enjoy it, and know that there's at least one person in the world, that knows what they feel, and is willing to express that feeling in a way they can relate too.


This is no doubt the longest winded bio I've ever written. I know it doesn't say what some want to read about, but it's what I feel the need to share with everyone.


Peace and Love always,


Ron Kauffman

Definitely my kind of song. Strong lyrics wonderfully interpreted and sung clear as a bell by Ron. Really enjoy the way you feature the vocals in your tunes, giving them the importance they certainly deserve. Makes you want to listen and discover what happens to the characters in the song...

You always seem to get a good recorded acoustic sound Ron as it is here. Also your story telling lyric and the way your sing them allows the song to come across as it should....with a lot of feeling. Well done!
