DiFranco wears many hats including singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer.  Her empowering spirit is evident through her songs that tackle barbed political and sexual issues with uncommon insight and compassion.  Ani's new studio album, Red Letter Year, celebrates existence, profess love and condemn religious fundamentalism with an infectious sense of glee.  It's one of Ani's most joyous records to date.  Red Letter Year takes more advantage of this freedom than ever before.  Conceived, sculpted and refined over the course of two years - a lifetime compared to a typical Ani recording session - the album is an impeccably crafted, multi-layered sonic achievement

Ani DiFranco's feeling good, and she's in a giving mood - Red Letter Year isn't just a party, it's a music lover's gift.

Ani Difranco with Special Guest at the Denver Botanic Garden

- for the Grateful Web

Seventeen years ago, Ani DiFranco released her first album.  Since then, she has established herself as one of the most influential and inspirational artists of her generation.  DiFranco wears many hats including singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer.  Her empowering spirit is evident through her songs that tackle barbed political and sexual issues with uncommon insight and compassion.  On September 11, Righteous Babe Records will release 'Canon,' the first retrospective studio album of Ani's illustrious and storied career.  The double-disc will feature songs from her albums spanning 1990 - 2006 and five re-recorded tracks with help from Todd Sickafoose (bass) and Allison Miller (drums).

Since the early 1990s, DiFranco's innovative guitar style, signature percussive finger picking, expressive vocals and incisive lyrics have earned her a loyal, dedicated fanbase and consistent critical acclaim.

The self-described "little folk singer" has released eighteen studio albums and has produced records for artists such as Dan Bern, Utah Phillips and Janis Ian.  DiFranco has collaborated with everyone from Prince and Cyndi Lauper to Dar Williams and Maceo Parker.  She continues to sell out venues all over the world including NYC's Carnegie Hall.  In 2005, DiFranco made CMJ's list of the 25 most influential artists of the last 25 years, along with U2, Nirvana, Radiohead and The Pixies.

DiFranco's 2006 release, 'Reprieve' earned a slew of accolades.  Entertainment Weekly called it "beautifully committed music - the kind that's as essential now as it has ever been."
