Ani DiFranco Background
Maria DiFranco grew up in Buffalo, New York. She first picked up the guitar when she was a child, and by the time she turned
nine, she gigged with her guitar teacher. At the age of 15, DiFranco's mom relocated to California. Instead of moving with
her, DiFranco formally requested emancipation and remained in Buffalo. A year later, she moved to the Big Apple on her own.
Eventually, she penned the tune "Emancipated Minor" to relay her experience. At the age of 19, DiFranco established her own
record label. In 1990, she debuted her eponymous album. Following the album's arrival, DiFranco's music quickly resonated
with college students and garnered a solid reputation through organic efforts and word of mouth. She built her brand and cultivated
a dedicated following by churning out new albums at least once a year and sticking to a rigorous tour schedule. DiFranco has
declined record contracts from major record labels throughout her career. She shares the same views as artists like Prince
who believe that the music industry holds a number of shortcomings. She also addressed people's assumptions that she owns
her own label to secure profits in a letter put in Ms. Magazine in 1997. In her letter she said that owning her own music
label has helped her sustain her artistic independence and maintain control when it comes to her own music. DiFranco considers
herself to be a folk singer but she is often classified as an alternative rocker. Her inspirations span numerous genres, including
classical, funk, electronic and punk. DiFranco writes about what she knows with several of her songs serving as a vehicle
for sharing her personal life experiences. Her songs also touch on political and feminist issues. Her music has addressed
hot-button issues like sexual assault, gun control and war.
