Her lyrics come in torrents and typically combine autobiography, politics, and punchy aphorisms. As a child she lived a precociously independent life, leaving home at the age of fifteen and earning money playing popular songs on the sidewalk for tips and spare change. She soon began to write her own material and at eighteen moved to New York City, where she found mentors in her teachers at the New School for Social Research and in musicians on the folk-music scene, including the late Pete Seeger. Like Seeger, DiFranco believes that music is best shared through live performance. At her concerts political passion and intense emotion are felt by both performer and audience.

The only thing that may suggests this humble and tiny package is the source of such a long list of remarkable accomplishments is her infectious enthusiasm for topics that are dear to her, her razor sharp wit and her charming sense of humor.
Ani DiFranco illustration by Andy Friedman. The person who first declared "The Personal is Political" would be hard-pressed to find a public figure either more political or more personal than Angela Maria DiFranco. It started in small clubs and coffeehouses in , when word of mouth began to spread about the little girl, too young to really be in the room, with the big guitar and the bigger voice. As an emancipated teenager with a shaved head and platform boots, Ani DiFranco stomped into the hearts of young people yes, mostly women looking to put their angst into words and their lives into focus.
