“Rise” is a call to action to protect and rewild our land and rivers. Efforts to fight climate change are quite often about saying no. Rewilding is different. It is about saying yes. Rewilding literally means the un-doing of domestication. In some places rewilding might look like putting the bends back into the river before it was straightened for agriculture so fish and ducks can build their nest and lay their eggs in the calmer water. In other places rewilding might mean removing the power dam or reintroducing missing species. Rewilding is an extension of the original ideas of conservation as it requires human beings and communities to be in concert with nature; Not just managing it, but actively participating in restoring the ecosystem that supports all of us. Imagine every national park connected by wild corridors so apex predators like bears & wolves could migrate freely across North America and be able to return to the places they have too long been estranged from.
“Rise” is being released in support of Trout Unlimited, the national non-profit organization dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring America’s coldwater fisheries and their watershed.Read More »

We’re thrilled to welcome Jess Nolan into the RBR family.
A member of Jenny Lewis’ all-female touring band, Nolan is an in-demand co-writer, vocalist, and touring musician for artists like Katie Pruitt, Joy Oladokun, Lydia Luce, and more.
Her new single “Emergency Landing” is a plea to have compassion for our own needs. “We live in a world that glamorizes the grind and doesn’t prioritize rest,” Jess explains. “Taking days off and spending time alone helps me show up more fully for the people around me. Instead of viewing it as selfish, I now see it as a sacred step in community care.”
Hear “Emergency Landing” here.Read More »
We are thrilled to share Little Plastic Castle (25th Anniversary Edition) with a new remaster by Heba Kadry, the addition of three bonus tracks mixed by Tchad Blake, and a new CD package and first-time release on vinyl (2 LPs).
Twenty-five years later, Little Plastic Castle feels like a greatest hits collection. Her highest charting release on Billboard (peaking at #22) and containing her third Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance – Female (“Glass House”), Ani DiFranco’s ninth studio album shows the Little Folksinger grappling with her independent career bubbling up into the mainstream — dissection of her fashion choices, a new expanded listenership encroaching on the die-hards, examination of what it means to sell out — encapsulated in singalongs so indelible that they’re staples of her live set decades later.Read More »
The Righteous Babes are a supergroup of powerhouse female artists, banded together under Ani DiFranco’s label, Righteous Babe Records. Think boygenius meets Bonny Light Horseman — currently the band is comprised of three independent groups: Gracie and Rachel, Holly Miranda and Jocelyn Mackenzie.
As four musicians coming from varying backgrounds, navigating a band together in a new musical landscape, covering the song “Maps” felt like the guiding compass we all needed. Holly, having previously toured with Karen O on her solo tour, recounts, “Revisiting a song that has meant so much to me all these years later makes me feel so grateful for the ride, the present moment, and all that’s down the road for the babes.”Read More »
