Louise Goffin hosts and produces Song Chronicles, a podcast featuring conversations with legendary songwriters, musicians and producers from the relaxed perspective of an insider, talking the "inside baseball" of songs and record-making with peers. Song Chronicles creates an exclusive record of historic stories told by the music makers themselves. Guests have included 23x GRAMMY-winning sound engineer and producer Al Schmitt, 7x GRAMMY-winner Gloria Estefan, multi-platinum songwriter-producers Desmond Child and Sam Hollander, and many more. Song Chronicles follows where The Great Song Adventure left off, an earlier podcast co-hosted with author and songwriter, Paul Zollo where they interviewed songwriters like Mike Stoller, Chrissie Hynde, Chris Difford and Chuck D. The Great Song Adventure archives includes an intimate five-part interview with Carole King, which remains King's most extensive interview to date.

  • Deep soundings from today’s raging seascape of song

    I’d been meaning to start listening for months. I’d been trapped and lost in my own head with what to do, where to go, with a recent new recording. Seeking advice all around, a journalist acquaintance said he had none, but enthusiastically urged me to start listening to Louise’s interviews. I immediately began to listen from the beginning and it has been a revelation! I’m so grateful for her unique perch and the depth of her many relationships with such a broad spectrum of talent.

  • This is the podcast to crave if you are a music biz insider, or just curious about the biz.

    As a fellow singer/songwriter I listen to each & every one of Louise Goffin’s podcast. She is totally credible, and is a grown child of rock royalty. Louise has a very good mix of interviews from music biz insiders. Nothing but love & praise for Louise Goffin & Song Chronicles. Anytime you want to do a co-write Louise I will give up my lone wolf songwriting and let you take the lead, or let you 🎶follow🎶.

  • Always a great listen

    The Thomas Walsh episode is yet another reminder on why Song Chronicles is consistently an excellent listen. Louise always has a great rapport with her guests. Her interviews feel like you are eavesdropping on two people sitting around chatting. Her conversation with Walsh is filled with amusing anecdotes, interesting insights into music making and a great introduction to Walsh’s music if you’re not familiar with it.

    I’ve been a Louise fans since Kid Blue. Great to hear her talk to other song writers, always good. Early episodes had audio issues, newer ones, like Kathy Valentine, is very pleasing. more
