While the landmark Tapestry album earned Carole King superstar status, the singer songwriter had already established herself as one of pop music’s most gifted and successful composers, with work recorded by everyone from The Beatles to Aretha Franklin. Born on February 9th 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, she began playing piano at the age of four and formed her first band, the vocal quartet the Co-Sines while in high school. A devotee of the composing team of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller (the duo behind numerous hits for Elvis Presley, The Coasters and Ben E. King), she became a fixture at influential DJ Alan Freed’s local rock and roll shows. While attending Queens College, she fell in with budding songwriters Paul Simon and Neil Sedaka as well as Gerry Goffin, with whom she forged a writing partnership.
