NASHVILLE, TN – RIAA Gold-certified recording artist and hit songwriter, Karla Bonoff has signed a recording agreement with Melody Place LLC, based in Nashville, TN.

Melody Place President and noted producer (Jimmy Webb, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Mathis) Fred Mollin says, “It has been one of my great dreams to work with Karla, and with the solid concept that we are bringing to the album, it shows that dreams do come true.”

Bonoff is going into the studio with Mollin, in August, to begin recording a new album with an anticipated release date Q1, 2022.

Since the early 1970s Bonoff has been a prolific figure in music, writing songs recorded by Linda Ronstadt (“Someone To Lay Down Beside Me”, “Lose Again”, “If He’s Ever Near”), Bonnie Raitt (“Home”), Wynonna Judd (“Tell Me Why”), Lynn Anderson (“Isn’t It Always Love”) and many others.

In 1977, Bonoff released her debut, self-titled solo album, recording many of her own compositions, previously released and made famous by some of the above artists. Stephen Holden, writing for Rolling Stone, called the album “an impressive debut” and concluded that “the consistency of the material confirms a major writing talent; the performances show a promising singer.”

Her greatest commercial, chart success came with her 3rd album, Wild Heart of the Young, released in 1982. The album spawned a Top 40 single, “Personally,” peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

In 1984, Bonoff recorded “Somebody’s Eyes,” which was featured on the film soundtrack to the hit ‘80s film, Footloose. 10 years later, she contributed “Standing Right Next To Me,” a duet with Vince Gill for the soundtrack to the film, 8 Seconds.

In the subsequent decades, Bonoff has recorded a total of 6 studio solo albums, 1 live album, 3 compilation projects and toured internationally to great acclaim.

This latest undertaking will only highlight her ever-growing talent as a multi-hyphenate force in the music business, and the true definition of a timeless artist.
