Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in LA’s Laurel Canyon during its music halcyon days, Louise Goffin is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and producer who released her first album on Elektra/Asylum when she was 19. Along the way she’s released six solo albums and produced a Grammy-nominated record for Carole King, “A Holiday Carole”.
Her EP, Appleonfire, Louise's seventh studio recording, got its genesis following the June 19th 2014 passing of her father, lyricist Gerry Goffin. It comes only months after Louise's first release in six years, Songs From The Mine, which was described by the San Diego Troubadour as "a masterpiece of reinvention", by The Los Angeles Times as “endearing folk-pop”, and by American Songwriter as “a terrific return from an artist…whose best work is likely ahead of her.” Appleonfire features Joseph Arthur singing a duet of a little known Goffin/King song “If I’m Late” , and Jakob Dylan guest ing on“Take A Giant Step” .
For many who grew up with The Gilmore Girls hit TV show, Louise’s voice can be heard with Carole’s on the duet in the opening theme“Where You Lead”.
Louise has lived in England, travels to New York, Nashville, and the Mid-West, and is based in Los Angeles. She's also toured the world on electric guitar in Tears For Fears, and played banjo with Bryan Ferry.
Louise has written hundreds of songs over her career, and in 2016 some of them will be released with new artists Emmett Skyy and Leihoku.
