About Louise Goffin
Singer/songwriter Louise Goffin grew up watching and listening to her famous parents craft some of pop music's greatest songs. As the daughter of Gerry Goffin and Carole King, Louise was always surrounded by music. She started playing piano at age six and by age eight, she was writing her own songs; however, she was painfully shy of singing. She tried her hand at a recording career anyway, releasing Kid Blue in 1979. A self-titled effort followed in 1981 and a year later, Goffin contributed "Uptown Boys" to the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack. Her third album, This Is the Place, appeared on Warner Bros. in 1988, but it wasn't enough to establish her as a major artist.
Almost ten years later, Goffin yearned to do it again. She found herself shaping her music into something more stylish and sophisticated, matching the honesty of Shawn Colvin and the casual air of Aimee Mann. She made her DreamWorks debut in early 2002 with Sometimes a Circle. She and her mother also re-recorded King's classic "Where You Lead" for the theme song to the WB's The Gilmore Girls. Bad Little Animals followed in 2008, released on Goffin's label Majority of One. In 2014, she returned with her sixth studio album, Songs from the Mine, featuring Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp on the single "Watching the Sky Turn Blue." ~ MacKenzie Wilson
