A true cultural icon, Smith’s 1975 debut album Horses was inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry. Subsequent albums, among them Radio Ethiopia, Easter, Dream of Life, Gung Ho and Banga, cemented her reputation as a uniquely impassioned songwriter and recording artist. Landmark songs such as “Dancing Barefoot” and “Because the Night” (co-written with Bruce Springsteen) have been covered by dozens of artists including U2 and 10,000 Maniacs. Smith is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received both ASCAP’s Founders Award for lifetime achievement and Sweden’s Polar Award for significant achievements in music. She holds the honor of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture and has earned honorary doctorates from Rowan State University, the Pratt Institute and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as multiple Grammy Award nominations. Smith’s 2010 memoir Just Kids received the National Book Award for Nonfiction. Her other acclaimed books include M Train and Year of the Monkey. In 2016, she accepted the Nobel Prize in Literature on behalf of recipient and longtime friend Bob Dylan. Nearly fifty years into her career, Smith continues to uphold her artistry and activism as a writer, performer and advocate for social justice and human rights.
