In the 60`s Karla Bonoff became friends with other musicians who were creating their own unique sound. Karla connected with Linda Ronstadt, who recorded six Bonoff songs. Throughout the years, Karla has continued to do what she does best, building up a passionate audience, resulting in sold-out houses everywhere. Karla`s legacy as a writer and perseverance as a performer are spoken best in a Billboard Magazine review of Karla`s All My Life recording. “Long before Alanis and Jewel, there was a breed of singer/songwriters whose earthly anthems of soul-searching, heartache and joy touched souls in a way few can muster today.“
