When it comes to music, Ani DiFranco believes in starting young. Born on September 23, 1970 in Buffalo, New York, she started playing music in local bars at the tender age of nine. "Nobody played music in my family, but as soon as I got my guitar, I started making friends with this guy, Mike, at the guitar shop, and he started taking me around to his gigs," she said of her inspiration to pursue career in music.
