ABOUT

Ani Di Franco is a Grammy-winning musical artist and feminist icon recognized for her poetry and songwriting which pierces social convention and challenges the status quo, as well as for her social activism and political engagement. One of the first artists to create her own label in 1990, she is the mother of the DIY movement and recently released her twentieth studio album on her own Righteous Babe Records. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger,” her music has embraced many genres and collaborators ranging from Bob Dylan to Chuck D to Prince. She lives in New Orleans.

 

Her 22nd studio album, Revolutionary Love, was released in January 2021. Produced by Di Franco and recorded mainly in two whirlwind days at Overdub Lane in Durham, Revolutionary Love marks the latest proof of one of her most powerful gifts as an artist: a rare ability to give voice to our deepest frustrations and tensions, on both a personal and political level. As her first studio effort since the release of No Walls and the Recurring Dream (Di Franco’s widely praised 2019 memoir), Revolutionary Love arrives as an instantly transportive selection of songs.
