DiFranco is considered the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label (Righteous Babe Records) in 1990. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger”, her music has embraced punk, funk, hip hop, jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds.
Her most recent album Binary was released in June 2017 on Righteous Babe and her memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream was released in May 2019 by Viking Books.
Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Greg Brown, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D and many more.
Ani DiFranco’s memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream is out now. Ani DiFranco is coming to the Astor Theatre in Perth on Monday, April 6, 2020. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 25 from Bluesfest Touring.
