Singer/songwriter Karla Bonoff grew up in Los Angeles, and was right in the heart of the hootenanny scene in 1969, when the first hints of the coming singer-songwriter wave were coalescing around The Troubadour with the likes Jackson Browne, James Taylor and Elton John, among others. She met other artists there, including Kenny Edwards (who had started the Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt) Wendy Waldman and Andrew Gold. Something powerful in their combined sound brought them together and the band Bryndle, one of the early songwriter groups was born. Bryndle made an album for A&M, but they were a bit ahead of their time, and it was never released.
After Bryndle, Karla went on to compose the core of the album that secured Linda Ronstadt's superstardom, "Hasten Down The Wind". Karla went on to release three hit albums of her own and continues to perform all over America, with her longtime friend, producer and band mate, Kenny Edwards (founding member of the Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt and Bobby Kimmel) accompanying her onstage (on vocals, guitar, mandolin and bass) - and, at most shows, he performs as her opening act.
Karla's legacy as a performer and writer was summed up in a review of her "All My Life" recording in Billboard Magazine: "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."
