An American singer-songwriter, primarily known for her songwriting. As a songwriter, Bonoff’s songs have been interpreted by other artists such as “Home” by Bonnie Raitt, “Tell Me Why” by Wynonna Judd, and “Isn’t It Always Love” by Lynn Anderson. Linda Ronstadt has recorded a number of her songs, notably 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.
