Karla Bonoff

Singer/songwriter Karla Bonoff grew up in Los Angeles and briefly attended UCLA. Emerging from the Monday night hootenanny scene at the Troubadour nightclub, she was a member of Bryndle, a folk-rock group also featuring Wendy Waldman, Andrew Gold, and Kenny Edwards, that formed in 1969, signed to A&M, and cut an album that was never released. Edwards, a former member of the Stone Poneys (a band featuring Linda Ronstadt), and Gold were later part of Ronstadt's backing band, and they brought Bonoff to her attention. Ronstadt recorded three of Bonoff's songs on her 1976 album, Hasten Down the Wind, leading to a recording contract for Bonoff and the release of three albums on Columbia Records, the last of which, Wild Heart of the Young (1982), featured the Top 40 hit "Personally." Bonoff worked on movie soundtracks during the '80s, notably on Footloose (1984) and About Last Night (1986). She released her fourth album, New World, in 1988. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Where are the rest of her albums.
A hidden treasure of a songwriter. I have enjoyed her for decades.

Have love her music for decades, and have seen her twice in recent years around Massachusett s . Probably my number 1 singer/songw r i t e r of all time!

My wife and I went to see Karla at the 1129 restaurant in Santa Barbara, CA about 25 years ago. It was a small venue and we were up close to her on the small stage. It was awesome! She was excellent, as usual. We've loved her before that night and ever since. I'm living in Oregon now and my wife died earlier this year. I wish I had the opportunity to see her in Oregon. She always held a special place in our hearts.

Karla comes through Chicago every year. She and Nina's shows are wonderful and I always try to go. She wrote the soundtrack of my life for which I am so grateful...

Had the honor to see Karla with Jackson Browne in 1978 in Dayton, OH.
Was turned onto her from a brother buying an 8 track of hers that I fell in love with.
Philadelphia , 1977. Fronted for Harry Chappin, Went with a pretty girl with very, very long blonde hair. One of the best nights of my life. jtholste

I took my mom to see her at The Arc in Ann Arbor, Mich. She stayed afterward and signed autographs and even talked a few minutes with my my mother, who listened to her music to help get through her divorce in the 1970's. Great concert.
saw her nearly 25 years ago -Tanglewood in the Bershires- had been a fan since I'd first hear of her a few years earlier -such a beautiful voice
beebell2
listened to her music in the late 80's with a lover - all of it was a peak experience.
30 years ago... I hate to admit
I saw Karla at the Miami Jai alia with Jackson Browne.. Did not know her music at the time..but I have loved and seen her ever since!
I saw Karla Bonoff in Londonderry on March 24 at the Tupelo Music Hall and she was great. I've been a fan of hers for many years and it was a real treat to see her in my hometown.
She brings back such great memories! I saw her on Martha's Vineyard in the 80's! I followed her into the kitchen at the Atlantic connection and she gave me her autograph! She was and is sooo great!
love you Karla, saw you in sellersville pa last fall ,you still got it. Kip
One of the most talented and unheralded singer song writers.

Just saw Karla in Natick, MA and she was AWESOME!
Thanks, Loretta, for turning me on to Karla, so, so many years ago! She hasn't faded away at all1
Takes me back to 1978 to the open mic acoustic sessions in the layed back tavern scenes. Good memories...
jwallace200
Just love her and have since 1980. Her voice is so rich. Would love to have her in Dallas!
Beautiful!

Loved her since the 80's. Saw her for the first time a few years ago in a small theater in Sellersville , PA. Amazing show even if I had to go alone because no else appreciates her talent. Signed CD's after an awesome show where she sang all my favorites and was funny, talkative and gracious. Stayed till she spoke with everyone. Waiting for her to come back.
About eight years ago I ran a little theatre and finally got to book Karla and Kenny after loving her stuff for decades. The audience hung on every word all night. Outstanding. And her music was frequently used in "The Wonder Years" TV series which gave a whole new meaning to it. Karla is a magical artist.
Saw her a few years ago in Williamsburg , VA of all places and she was exceptional on the grand piano and guitar. Bryndle CD's are available on the Karla web site and worth having just because she sounds even better with Wendy, Kenny, and Andrew.
I adore Karla. Happened to see her in concert in the late 80's in Boulder. Best concert ever - magical - stage effects not necessary!
chapduck
One of the best, she can still bring me to tears and laughter at the depth of life she offers in each song!
She's one of my favorite singer/songw r i t e r s . She sings her own songs better than anybody else and deserves to be more popular. It's sad that she hasn't released more albums.

Come to Missouri!!

What's not to love about Karla?! She has a voice like an angel & the talent to compose poetry that extends beyond time... Luv ya K!
msrevjd
I think this is wrong about Bryndle never relasing an album. I had a CD by them several years ago....
Love Karla... does she ever play in Boston?
Heard her sing last night in Salina, KS. She sounds as good as ever. Definitely an overlooked treasure.
Nobody does melancholy like Karla Bonoff.
jbandcb
Have loved her for years. Saw her perform in San Diego on a college tour back in the 80's. The Troubadour in L.A. was a swirling vortex of talent in the 60's and 70's.
jmssmwhitney
I became a Karla fan from a band in Huntington LI, whom played her well.
A sleeper writer and interpreter, not kid stuff, but shows genuine emotions and maturity.
