Editorial Reviews

Fans of Ani DiFranco will be pleased to see that the award-winning recording artist has maintained her thoughtfulness and openness throughout her long and critically-acclaimed career. In this conversation with Anthony DeCurtis, contributing editor at Rolling Stonemagazine, DiFranco exudes down-to-earth charm as she discusses subjects including her songwriting process and whether it has changed over the years, the cult of celebrity and politics that has poisoned politics, and the challenges of being a new parent. As a special treat for listeners, DiFranco also performs several readings from her book of poetry and paintings, Verses.

Publisher's Summary

As the founder of Righteous Babe Records, the award-winning recording artist Ani DiFranco has never let her career succumb to "business as usual". Her music - rhythmically percussive guitar playing, insistent vocals, and a willingness to address both sexual and social politics - defies neat categories. It draws on folk and rock, as well as jazz, funk, hip-hop, experimental and electronic sounds, and much more. She has inspired countless musicians to rewrite the rules of the recording industry by striving for self-sufficiency and refusing to allow art to be subsumed by commerce.

DiFranco converses with Anthony DeCurtis, contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine.

Ani was great, as always!

I enjoyed this except that I could not hear the questions being asked by the audience members.
