Karla Bonoff is one of the great female vocalist and singer-songwriters of our time. She was a songwriter by the age of 15. She wrote several songs that scored hits for Linda Rondstadt, and Karla herself was signed as a solo artist to Columbia Records in 1977. There, she not only recorded the songs Linda had done (such as "Someone to Lay Down Beside Me"), but also the hit single "I Can't Hold On" and the tune "Home," which later wound up on one of Bonnie Raitt's albums. Throughout the years, she's toured with Raitt, Jackson Browne, John Prine, J.D. Souther and others.
