Goffin Shines With New Single and Enlists the Help of Some A-List Friends LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/03/13 -- Highly sought after producer and songwriter, Louise Goffin is showcasing her versatility yet again with the release of her latest single, "Watching the Sky Turn Blue." Recently, Goffin produced Carole King's A Holiday Carole album -- which was the first time in 10 years that Carole received Grammy attention, since the 1993 nomination for songwriting on "Now and Forever." Ready to step into the spotlight once again, Goffin lets her radiant personality shine on this fun and upbeat track. Fans of Louise Goffin's music appreciate how diverse of an artist she is and enjoy each time she evolved and reinvents her sound.

Self-produced by Goffin, "Watching the Sky Turn Blue" is dominated by beachy guitars and shakers with a hand clap carrying the beat along. With her stellar instrumentation, this single speaks to her professionalism and experience as a producer. Goffin knows just how to create a catchy melody on the chorus with the breakdown adding extra layers of exciting and colorful tones and big harmonies. The singer's vibrant voice brings life and positivity to her carefree lyrics. Producer Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Kiss), whom Goffin chose to work with after signing her first record deal at age 17, introduced Goffin to his friends Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Bruce Witkin, Tommy Henriksen and Glen Sobel at Village Recording Studios, where she was recording. Two days later, on Bob's recommendation, Goffin recut her single to be at dance tempo, and with Ezrin's blessing, she fearlessly asked Alice, his band mates, and Johnny Depp if they'd join in for handclaps and backing vocals; to which they agreed. The result is a feel-good jam that encourages listeners to live in the moment.

Tracing her roots back to Brooklyn, NY, Goffin was born to two of the most respected songwriters in pop music; Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Her family was intrigued by the allure of the waves, sun and sand of the West Coast and decided to migrate to California when Goffin was a small child. Always surrounded by high-quality music and professional musicians, it was inevitable that Goffin would begin writing and composing her own songs at eight years old. Years of perfecting her craft led her to open for Jackson Browne at The Troubadour in West Hollywood at just 17 years old. Fast forward to today, Goffin is an accomplished musician, producer of a Grammy nominated album and has recorded six full albums herself, including Sometimes a Circle on DreamWorks and This is the Place on Warner Bros. Goffin's talent has reached countries all over the world, and has allowed her to produce, co-write, collaborate with and provide vocal support for major artists.

Judging by her previous career moves, Goffin has a lot more great music and to offer to her fans and her musician counterparts alike. Download "Watching the Sky Turn Blue" now on iTunes and follow Louise Goffin's journey at
