the essential louise goffin

Released 2016 © Majority Of One Records

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, multi-instrumentalist, 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 and her first studio album in 10 years. Louise has released seven 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.

 

Her seventh studio recording, Appleonfire, got its genesis following the June 19th 2014 passing of her father, lyricist Gerry Goffin. In a prolifically creative time, Louise began recording her new EP only months after her 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 Jakob Dylan on the opening track “Take A Giant Step” , and  Joseph Arthur on a duet with Louise of “If I’m Late”.  Her new EP boasts original songs including a stunning previously unreleased co-write with her father, Gerry Goffin, titled “I’m Not Rich But I’m Not Poor”.  Guitar World affirms Louise's growth artistically, describing how "long ago (her career) transcended the shadow of expectation that goes with being the daughter of elite members of the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, proven here in the way that her own tunes appear triumphantly on Appleonfire alongside the ones her dad and mom penned."

 

 

Louise has lived in England, travels to New York, Nashville, and the Mid-West, and is based in Los Angeles. She has toured the world on electric guitar in Tears For Fears, and played banjo with Bryan Ferry. 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”.

 

You can catch her live as she continues to perform on tour while reporting she can’t record fast enough to keep up with the songs she writes. Stick around and have a listen.
