Singer/songwriter Louise Goffin grew up watching and listening to her famous parents craft some of pop music's greatest songs. As the daughter of Gerry Goffin and Carole King, Louise Goffin was always surrounded by music. She started playing piano at age six and by age eight, she was writing her own songs; however, she was painfully shy of singing. She tried her hand at a recording career anyway, releasing Kid Blue in 1979. It was a modest effort and quite charming, but Goffin was overshadowed by the powerful work of her mother. A self-titled effort followed in 1981 and a year later, Goffin contributed "Uptown Boys" to the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack. Still, she was coming into her own as an adult and found songwriting to be a difficult task. Her third album, This Is the Place, appeared on Warner Bros. in 1988, but it wasn't enough to establish Goffin as a major artist.
