“Revolutionary Love is a lush, meditative exploration of personal hardship, political strife, and the damage we cause when we choose not to hear one another.” – Flood
“Robust melodies, padded with streaks of soul and jazz that represent some of DiFranco’s fullest productions yet… “ – The New Yorker
“Sparks of Di Franco’s songwriting genius emanate from her heart, lighting our paths with her intimate candor, her fervor for the power of revolutionary love, and her embrace of the power of such love to change us and the world, if we have the ears to hear these moving songs.” – Folk Alley
“With characteristic passion on her first studio album since 2017, she makes the personal universal, and the political personal.” – Associated Press
“Di Franco takes on the tumult and anxieties of the current moment with her characteristic lyrical moxie and some of the lushest arrangements and finest vocals of her entire career.” – No Depression
“Di Franco’s latest record is quite terrific. It’s an eclectic, buoying work that continues the musician’s signature focus on self-investigating, healing and social justice.” – American Songwriter
Revolutionary Love reflects its title as both a call to compassion and a call to arms. It challenges notions of personal and collective responsibility and elucidates the hope for inner and outer change, in illustrating exactly what it means to live and love in a ravaged, suffering world.” – AllMusic
Widely considered a feminist icon, Grammy winner Ani Di Franco is the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label in 1990.

Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Greg Brown, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and many more. Her memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream was released in May 2019, and Di Franco released a No Walls Mixtape alongside the book, offering a new take on songs related to the memoir.
