Karla Bonoff is accomplished solo artist, but is probably best known for her songwriting. Her songs have been recorded by many artists, such as "Home" by Bonnie Raitt, "Tell Me Why" by Wynonna Judd, and "Isn't It Always Love" by Lynn Anderson. Linda Ronstadt recorded songs that include three tracks on the 1976 album Hasten Down the Wind ("Someone To Lay Down Beside Me", "Lose Again" and "If He's Ever Near"), which introduced Bonoff to a mass audience, and "All My Life", a 1989 duet with Ronstadt and Aaron Neville.

Bonoff sang background vocals for Linda Ronstadt and Wendy Waldman before releasing her debut album in 1977, titled Karla Bonoff. followed by Restless Nights (1979), Wild Heart of the Young (1982), New World (1988) and All My Life in 1999. She is also noted for her hit recording of "Personally", which became a #19 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart in the summer of 1982. She recorded "Somebody's Eyes" for the Footloose (1984) soundtrack and "Standing Right Next To Me" on the 8 Seconds (1994) soundtrack.

Karla's legacy as a writer and perseverance as a performer are spoken best in a Billboard Magazine review of Karla's "All My Life" recording. "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."
