KC: Your guitar sounds bigger than most full bands. Where did that evolve out of for you?
Ani: When I was coming up I was a vehemently…ENGAGED person.
KC: Oh really? I never picked that up from you. You’re such a wallflower. Hahahaa
Ani: Oh no? NEWSFLASH!
As a longtime Ani DiFranco fan, I always felt short-changed that so many interviews never went deeper than how many records she has sold on her own, or “why she’s so angry”.
We caught up with the legendary singer songwriter, performer, activist & Grammy winner during sound check at a recent sold-out show in Kent, OH.
Ani’s incredibly open, and forthcoming about everything from balancing her career as a soon-to-be mother of 2, the origins of her (fierce) guitar attack, writing groundbreaking songs such as “The Atom” and “32 Flavors” and more.
Ani also shares insight into her songwriting process, early career, and journey as an upcoming performer and guitarist.
Our conversations are interspersed with recent, as well as classic tracks from her albums.
Recorded on Saturday, September 29th.
