2012 album from the Indie/Folk/Rock singer, songwriter and guitarist. Which Side Are You On? features 11self-penned songs alongside a radically reworked rendition of the classic title song, famously popularized by Pete Seeger nearly five decades ago, but no less relevant today. Backing DiFranco on this collection is a remarkably diverse line-up of stellar musicians, including members of her own touring band as well as guest players Ivan and Cyril Neville (of New Orleans' first family of Funk and R&B, The Neville Brothers), avant-saxophonist Skerik (Pearl Jam, R.E.M., Bonnie Raitt, The Meters), acclaimed singer/songwriter Ana‹s Mitchell, guitarist Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, Amos Lee), and a host of New Orleans-based horn players known for their work in such outfits as Galactic, Bonerama, and The Rebirth Brass Band.
