Ani DiFranco has been a near constant force in indie rock for almost three decades now. The singer/songwriter also has a new memoir out now. Titled No Walls and the Recurring Dream, the book follows her life and career up to age 30. You can watch her read from the memoir in the Paste "here": https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2019/05/ani-difranco-no-walls-and-the-recurring-dream.html. But first, listen to DiFranco's stunningly raw performance in the Paste Studio from 2018, featuring songs like "As Is" from 1998's Little Plastic Castle and the title track from 1995's Not A Pretty Girl, both of which appear on her memoir's corresponding mixtape, No Walls.
