Biography | show moreshow less
Janis Ian, an American singer-songwriter, was born on April 7, 1951, in New York City. Recognized for her powerful lyrics and emotive voice, Ian carved a niche for herself in the music industry with a career spanning several decades.

Ian's foray into music began early. At just 13, she wrote and recorded her first song, "Hair of Spun Gold." However, it was her controversial single "Society's Child (Baby I've Been Thinking)" released when she was 16 that garnered nationwide attention. The song, touching on interracial relationships, faced resistance from several radio stations but ultimately found commercial success, charting on the Billboard Hot 100. In 1975, Janis Ian released what would become her most iconic song, "At Seventeen." The introspective ballad, detailing the struggles of adolescence and societal beauty standards, received widespread acclaim. It earned her a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1976.

In the 2000s, Ian continued her artistic endeavors and began focusing on writing. She penned an autobiography titled "Society's Child," which provides a detailed look into her life and the music industry during her peak years.
