Started playing the piano at the age of 4. Formed first vocal quartet, the Co-Sines, while still in high school.  Met future husband Gerry Goffin while attending Queens College; they formed a songwriting partnership and churned out more than 400 songs that have been recorded by more than 1000 artists. 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.  Appeared in a 1988 off-Broadway production of A Minor Incident. With Goffin, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. Released her first-ever holiday album, A Holiday Carole, in November 2011. Published her memoir, A Natural Woman, in April 2012, and it made the New York Times best-sellers list. Is an advocate and cofounder of the White Cloud Council, an environmental conservation group.
