Carole King & Jerry Goffin

Carole King & Gerry Goffin

Carole King (Carol Klein) and Gerry Goffin were partners in music and partners in life – marrying young at the outset of their careers.  The couple traveled a similar course to Brill Building teams – Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil and Jeff Barry/Ellie Greenwich – but unlike the others – continued to be prolific hit makers far beyond the late 1950’s and the 1960’s both together and later apart – and sometimes with other collaborators.
