Born in Brooklyn and raised in LA’s Laurel Canyon during its music halcyon days, Louise Goffin's career in music has ranged from singer-songwriter, recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and has been known to tour as a hired gun for other artists. She made her start releasing her debut album when she was 19, and went on to release eight major label solo albums over her career. Louise now makes her music available on her own independent label, Majority of One. Her latest single, "Revenge" (a collaboration with North Carolina musician Skylar Gudasz) was released Oct. 2017. Her previous record was The Essential Louise Goffin Vol 1 - released in 2016. Louise both wrote songs for and produced an album for Carole King (on Concord) that was Grammy Nominated in 2011.
