Karla Bonoff

Don't let Karla Bonoff's numerous songwriting credits distract you from her proficiency as a singer as well. Her intimate guitarwork mixes well with her passionate vocals, and these two things coupled with her storytelling abilities put her beyond the reaches of your average folk singer. Bonoff combines delicacy with darkness, yet somehow keeps it catchy. Her new album, 2018's Carry Me Home, is her first solo album in over a decade, and does well as both a compilation and a studio creation.

See Karla Bonoff on piano and vocals, with Nina Gerber on guitar. 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. At the Gregory School of Performing Arts Center. 3231 North Craycroft. Advance tickets: $30. Door tickets: $33. To purchase tickets, visit InConcertTucson.com

Meet The Beatles

I was 12 or 13 when the Beatles first album came out. What a life changing album and what an incredible soundtrack to have as a teenager. Words cannot describe!

Crosby, Stills & Nash

Self-titled

I was in my first band Bryndle (Wendy Waldman, Andrew Gold, Kenny Edwards) at the time this album came out. It was a milestone for harmony singing and a big inspiration for us.

James Taylor

Self-titled

I heard James Taylor play an open mike at the Troubadour Club in Hollywood before this first album came out. I waited with bated breath for this record to come out after watching him play. A huge influence on me to this day.

Joni Mitchell

Self-titled

Mind blowing first album that started me trying all kinds of tunings on guitar. This record really changed the game for all of us aspiring female singer-songwriters.

The Band

Music from Big Pink

The most amazing songwriters and musicians. One of the best live shows I ever saw opening for Dylan at the Los Angeles Forum.
