Biography

While the landmark album Tapestry earned her superstar status, singer/songwriter Carole King had already firmly established herself as one of pop music’s most gifted and successful composers, with work recorded by everyone from the Beatles to Aretha Franklin.

EXPAND FULL BIO

In 1959, Sedaka scored a hit with ‘Oh! Carol,’ written in her honor;. In 1961, Goffin and King scored their first hit with the Shirelles’ chart-topping ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow; ‘ their next effort, Bobby Vee’s ‘Take Good Care of My Baby,’ also hit Number One, as did ‘The Locomotion,’ recorded by their baby-sitter, Little Eva. Together, the couple wrote over 100 chart hits in a vast range of styles, including the Chiffons’ ‘One Fine Day,’ the Monkees’ ‘Pleasant Valley Sunday,’ the Drifters’ ‘Up on the Roof,’ the Cookies’ ‘Chains’ (later covered by the Beatles), Aretha Franklin’s ‘(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman’ and the Crystals’ controversial ‘He Hit Me (and It Felt like a Kiss).’
In 1971, she released Tapestry, which stayed on the charts for over six years and was the best-selling album of the era. A quiet, reflective work which proved seminal in the development of the singer/songwriter genre, Tapestry also scored a pair of hit singles, ‘So Far Away’ and the chart-topping ‘It’s Too Late,’ whose flip-side, ‘I Feel the Earth Move,’ garnered major airplay as well. 1971’s Music also hit Number One, and generated the hit ‘Sweet Seasons; ‘ 1972’s Rhymes and Reasons reached Number Two on the charts, and 1974’s Wrap Around Joy, which featured the hit ‘Jazzman,’ hit the Number One spot.
