Louise Goffin: Los Angeles, California
Louise Goffin, Singer and Songwriter
Los Angeles, California

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in LA’s Laurel Canyon during its music halcyon days, Louise Goffin is a badass, multi-talented, modern-day renaissance woman. Her jobs in music have ranged from singer-songwriter, multiinstrumentalist, recording artist, record producer, and has been known to tour as a hired gun for other artists. She released her debut album on Elektra/Asylum when she was 19. Along the way Louise produced a Grammy-nominated record for Carole King, “A Holiday Carole” which was King's 17th studio album. Louise has released eight solo albums of her own, on major labels ranging from Elektra/ Asylum, Warner Bros. and Dreamworks to independent releases on her Majority of One imprint.

The Essential Louise Goffin (Vol. 1), her eighth record, features never released tracks including her own "5th of July", a duet with Joseph Arthur on an unearthed Goffin/King song, "If I'm Late", "Take A Giant Step" featuring Jakob Dylan, "Devil's Door" with Cyanide Social Club, and the iconic "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." An accomplished songwriter in her own right, the younger Goffin began to record some of the songs she loved that were written by her songwriting parents as homage to her father, lyricist Gerry Goffin, who passed on June 19th 2014. In a prolifically creative time, Louise has been releasing a record each year after Songs From The Mine (2014), which was her first release in six years after Bad Little Animals (2008).
