Scored her first Top 10 hit in 1961, titled "It Might As Well Rain Until September," a tune cowritten with Goffin. Released first album in 1970, titled Writer. Her 1971 album Tapestry spawned several hits, including "I Feel the Earth Move," "So Far Away" and her own version of "You've Got a Friend." In 1983, took a break from recording, moved to Idaho, and became an environmental activist; she returned to music six years later with City Streets.
