Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
- This event has passed.
Karla Bonoff has been described as singer/songwriters of her generation. She has been writing songs since she was 15 year old and made her professional debut when three of her songs appeared on Linda Ronstadt’s Hasten Down the Wind album. She has also written for Bonnie Raitt and Wynonna Judd. But as others were scoring hits with Karla Bonoff songs, Bonoff was embarking on a solo career. Her song, ‘I Can’t Hold On,’ reached number one, she scored coveted spots on major tours, opening for James Taylor and Jackson Browne, and earning a rave review in Time Magazine. Two subsequent albums, Restless Nights, and Wild Heart of the Young, established Bonoff as one of LA’s major artists and songwriters. She has gone on to work with Joe Walsh, Don Henley, and JD Souther, and scored a mega-hit with the song ‘Somebody’s Eyes,’ from the movie Footloose. Bonoff’s career came full circle when she penned three songs for her old friend Linda Ronstadt: ‘Cry Like a Rainstorm,’ ‘Howl Like the Wind,’ and ‘All My Life,’ a duet with Aaron Neville, which won the GRAMMY Award for Best Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.
