Sheila Nicholls' Essex Girl Records
Bettina Schelker's foundagirl
are clearly modelled on
Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe Records.
Sheila Nicholls is originally from the U.K. but is now a U.S. resident. Bettina Schelker is from Switzerland.
Do you know any other artists who are following Ani by keeping their musical independence and writing songs about personal and political issues?
I just found out about Allison Crowe, a Canadian singer/songwriter, whose music was influenced by Ani. She also owns her own record label:
Rachael Sage has already performed with Ani and founded her own label in 1996: MPress Records
Alana Davis with her label Tigress Records: she covered Ani DiFranco's song 32 Flavors
There are plenty of covers of Ani DiFranco songs around:
