Louise Goffin is the daughter of the hit-making songwriting team of Carole King and Gerry Goffin, yet she’s been able to forge her own unique path in music, beginning when she was only 19 years old with the album Kid Blue in 1979. In 1982, she placed a song on the Fast Times at Ridgemont High Soundtrack, then had a VH1 hit with 1988’s “Bridge of Sighs,” before taking a break from releasing music.

More recently, she’s been more active, producing a Grammy-nominated album for her mother, A Holiday Carole in 2011, and sharing the stage with her last year at London’s Hyde Park, doing her own set, as well as helping sing some of Carole’s Tapestry album. Louise has recently placed several songs on TV shows, and she’s working on new material for 2018.

She tells us why she’s not interested in recording full-length albums anymore, and the crazy story of getting Johnny Depp & Alice Cooper to sing backup vocals on a recent song of hers
