She is a member of the critically acclaimed rock band Sleater-Kinney. Brownstein was named one of the top female electric guitarists by Elle Magazine and Rolling Stone Magazine lists Sleater-Kinney’s song "Dig Me Out" – featuring the overdriven riffs of Brownstein – as one of the 50 greatest guitar songs of all time. In 2006, Brownstein earned a spot on Rolling Stone's list of the “25 Most Underrated Guitarists of All-Time" as their highest-rated female guitarist of all-time.

Brownstein's writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Believer, Slate and numerous book anthologies on music and culture. She is currently working on a memoir for Riverhead Books.[1]
