An independent artist, songwriter, and guitarist. Her musical styles have run the gammut from acoustic folk punk to jazzy to funk. Founder of Righteous Babe Records. To date, Ani has released over 16 records.
Bruce Cockburn recently observed in Performing Songwriter that Ani considers it part of her job description "to try and reflect real life in her songs. The life of the streets; the life of nations; the lives of people coping with power or its absence, looking for joy through the loneliness and pain and the complexities of relationship; the life of the spirit. All these are the stuff of human experience, and human experience is what we all share."
