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.
