Louise Goffin – New CD!

This is an AMAZING new recording from my pal Louise Goffin! So glad to be apart of the writing of the song “We Belong Together”, the recording also features some other Steel Bridge SongFest friends too – Wally IngramJames HallCraig GreenbergDelaney Davidson, and also the great Tom Freund.
Not to mention how cool is it to be on a record that #AliceCooper and#JohnnyDepp make an appearance on!!

Here is a link to download her new CD!

Louise Goffin
Songs From The Mine
(Majority Of One)

It doesn’t seem to bother Louise Goffin that as the daughter of Carole King and Gerry Goffin, one of history’s most legendary songwriting couples, there might be increased pressure to follow in her parents’ giant footsteps. In fact, after an initial run of three albums of pleasant but hardly earth shaking, mostly original material in the 80s, she laid low, releasing a critically acclaimed comeback in 2002. Goffin worked as producer on her Mom’s Christmas 2012 set which set the gears in motion for this belated follow-up.

It’s a beautifully produced, ballad heavy release that kicks off with a stirring, string enhanced, piano based ballad “Everybody but You,” a widescreen letter of encouragement to a friend that “someday soon, you won’t be crying.” Despite the appearance of a few rockers, one of which “Watching the Sky Turn Blue” features both Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp on backing vocals although you can’t pick either out of the mix, Goffin sticks predominantly to reflective compositions, all of which are co-written with others. Her voice is supple and sweet with an airy edge similar to that of Rickie Lee Jones, especially on the incisive “Sword in Your Heart,” another song that reaches out to a friend in need. She displays her ukulele skills on the innocent “Main Street Parade,” a tune enhanced by tuba and accordion that takes it in a unique direction.
