Karla Bonoff, a singer-songwriter known for moody, affecting ballads with soaring melodies and soul-searching lyrics, may be best known for penning hits made famous by Bonnie Raitt ("Home"), Linda Ronstadt ("Someone To Lay Down Beside Me," "Trouble Again," "All My Life"), and Wynonna Judd ("Tell Me Why")—but Karla's fans know that nobody sings them quite like she does. Performed with her sweet, soft, powerful voice, Karla's songs seem to spill from her heart like intimate conversations.
