One of the first artists to create her own label in 1990, Ani DiFranco has been recognized among the feminist pantheon for her entrepreneurship, social activism, and outspoken political lyrics. At a time of global chaos and confusion, DiFranco is kicking ass and taking names, with a set of songs offering a wide range of perspective and musical scope. Her new memoir, No Walls and the Recurring Dream is available in early May.
