Today, as pioneering musician Janis Ian is joined in a march forward by such high profile recording acts as Radiohead and Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Ani DiFranco's DIY beacon shines ever-bright.

Asked, "Why music?", Allison Crowe responds: "Why breathing?"

Just as naturally, the Canadian musician embraces DiFranco's truth: "If you are disgustingly sincere and terribly diligent, there are ways for any serious artist to operate outside the corporate structure."

Which makes it really about the music. Best-known for her piano music, one of the first guitar songs Allison Crowe performed on-stage was the Ani DiFranco song "Both Hands". Fortunately, Nanaimo, B.C.'s Scott Littlejohn was on hand to record this moment live (in 2004).

"The one person who really knows me best says I'm like a cat..." ~ 'Virtue', Ani DiFranco
