Louise Goffin
Louise Goffin
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).

Louise's re-emergence was well-received, described by the San Diego Troubadour as "a masterpiece of reinvention", by The Los Angeles Times as “endearing folkpop”, and by American Songwriter as “a terrific return from an artist…whose best work is likely ahead of her.”

July 3rd, 2016, Louise opened for Don Henley and Carole King in Hyde Park for British Summer Time, performing songs from "The Essential" to an audience of up to 66,000 people, with some of London's finest A-List musicians. She has songs and performances coming out on Netflix for Gilmore Girls (A Year In The Life), Miramax's "Bad Santa 2", and the upcoming independent feature film, "Carrie Pilby". During her career, Louise has played with Tears For Fears, Bryan Ferry, David Gilmore, Stevie Nicks and Donovan, and has had fans among respected artists such as Linda Ronstadt (Playboy Interview) & Michael McDonald (New York Times Interview). You can find her on YouTube singing alongside Brian Wilson and Kate Bush (Spirit of The Forest, 1989) and she duets on the opening theme of the Gilmore Girls hit TV show with Carole King.

Raised with songs her whole life, Louise has been songwriting since she was eight. She has lived in England, travels to New York, Nashville, and the Mid-West, and is based in Los Angeles.
