Publisher Comments:

A memoir by the iconic singer-songwriter chronicling her story from her beginnings in Brooklyn through her remarkable success as one of the world's most acclaimed musical talents, to her present day as a leading performer and activist. From her marriage to Gerry Goffin, with whom she wrote dozens of songs that hit the charts, to her own achievements, notably with Tapestry, which remained on the charts for more than six years, to her experiences as a mother, this memoir chronicles one of music's most successful and fascinating stars.

The book will include dozens of photos from King's childhood, her own family, and behind-the-scenes images from her performances over the years.

Synopsis:

Carole King takes us from her early beginnings in Brooklyn, to her remarkable success as one of the world's most acclaimed songwriting and performing talents of all time. A NATURAL WOMAN chronicles King's extraordinary life, drawing readers into her musical world, including her phenomenally successful #1 album Tapestry, and into her journey as a performer, mother, wife and present-day activist. Deeply personal, King's long-awaited memoir offers readers a front-row seat to the woman behind the legend.

The audiobook includes a bonus PDF of pictures, an original piano piece, a cappella performances, and a video conversation with the author are included.

About the Author

Carole King had her first No. 1 hit in 1961, at age 18, with "Will You Love Me Tomorrow". Collaborating with former husband Gerry Goffin, the team went on to write more than two dozen chart-toppers, including "One Fine Day", "The Loco-Motion", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", and "(You Me Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman." Her 1971 solo-album, Tapesty, won 4 Grammys, and earned her the record for longest time an album by a female artist has remained on the Billboard Charts (6 years), as well as the longest time holding the #1 position (15 consecutive weeks).

King, in addition to writing more than 100 top-selling songs has recorded 25 solo albums. In 2007 she and longtime collaborator James Taylor reunited and recorded Live at the Troubadour. Released in 2010 the album debuted at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and The Troubadour Reunion Tour became the second highest grossing Tour of that year. She has won numerous lifetime achievement honors and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, "Hit Parade" Hall of Fame, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Carole King continues to entertain audiences the world over. She released her most recent album in December, 2011, Carole King: A Holiday Carole, to rave reviews.

Psycheros6, August 6, 2012 (view all comments by Psycheros6)
In reading this memoir by the singer-songwriter Carole King, it guided me through my own history in embracing the "musical intelligence" of our times. Her formidable talents, the techniques in composing a song, partnerships & the overall evolution of the music industry are educational to the layman. With an exploding international touring career she retreats to nature to be & raise a family next to the land in Idaho,in which she is then thrust into environmental activism. She is a gutsy, modern woman-a Creatrix in her own right.The storytelling spins personal foibles plus heroic leaps of faith in her choices,interspersed with celebrity gigs the world over. Most importantly however,are the songs. Her lasting legacy.I feel the Earth Move under my feet....
