Janis Ian

Grammy Award-winning songwriter, singer and author, Janis Ian took the stage at age fifteen with a revolutionary song about interracial relationships, "Society's Child." It was 1966 and the country responded with both hostility and accolades. The song went to #1, and Janis was caught in the maelstrom of a divided country. Terrified by the hatred directed at her, she left the music industry, only to return a few years later with the worldwide hit "At Seventeen." The story never ends--her songs are currently used by artists as diverse as Bette Midler, John Mellencamp, and Celine Dion; she tours the world occasionally to sold-out crowds, and she is considered one of the pre-eminent acoustic guitarists of our era by such notables as Chet Atkins.

In addition to being a songwriter, singer and musician, Janis Ian is a columnist and author. Her books include science fiction, poetry, magazine articles and opinion columns, as well as her top-selling autobiography, "Society's Child". She is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, and her Facebook page has over half a million dedicated followers, who tune in to her "Godzilla Haiku" and "QOTD" every day.
