biography
In addition to being the most successful female songwriter of all time, Carole King also ranks as one of the most distinctive musical voices of the late twentieth century. She grew up with Neil Sedaka as a near neighbour, and was tutored in piano and singing by her mother from the age of 6. By high school she had formed the vocal quartet the Co-Sines. She began to write professionally after meeting Paul Simon, teaming up with local pharmacy worker Gerry Goffin, who later became her husband. Together they took an office in New York’s famed Brill Building, working for Aidon Music. Her own recording career began in 1959 with “Baby Sittin’” for ABC and two singles for RCA -- “Short-Mort” and “Oh! Neil” -- her retort to Neil Sedaka’s hit “Oh! Carol” that immortalized her. She then put her recording career on hold and concentrated on writing for the next six years. [read more...]
