Billboard magazine mentions the role Lowenstein Sandler’s Tech Group Chair, Ed Zimmerman, played in producing a song by four-time Grammy Award winner and blues legend, Keb’ Mo’. In discussing the song “Put a Woman in Charge,” Billboard quotes Keb’ Mo’ as he explains how he and his co-writers were working on the song:
“[T]hen we realized that we needed a guest. So I called my friend, Ed Zimmerman, in New York and was telling him about it, we needed a guest. He said, “I know somebody that might want to do it.’ And I’m like, ‘Who?’ He said, ‘How about Rosanne Cash?’ And I went, ‘Holy Moly, that’s perfect.’ We called her up and she said yes and we sent her the files. She sung the song. We put her on the record and got some backgrounds going, and we had a record.”
Rosanne Cash, a best-selling author, is also a four-time Grammy Award winner. The song was released to great reviews. Zimmerman, who is also an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School, published a case study about Keb’ Mo’ in September 2018, and the artist came and lectured at the Venture Capital class that Zimmerman teaches there. Mo’ ultimately performed the song for the class, so it premiered before 80 or so MBA students a few days prior to the song’s release.
