About Anna Scionti

Anna Scionti (pronounced Shon-tee) is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and bottleneck slide player who mixes it up on cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitar.

The music Scionti makes is her own style steeped in blues, roots and rock. While absorbing influences from her favourite inspirational artists, Scionti walks her own creative path. Driving guitars and honey-soaked, gravel-infused vocals draw you deep in to her world of emotionally charged, electrified rhythmic tunes.

Having lost both her parents as a teenager, Scionti turned to music as an outlet. Her original songs tell stories of love, loss, and longing and are uninhibited, raw and unapologetic in their honesty. They are songs from the heart.

JUNKBOX RACKET is Scionti’s latest album giving you a reason to get up and dance!

When left alone with a bunch of guitars out comes a collection of songs that are rebellious and raw. Recorded in 2020 JUNKBOX RACKET includes ten songs

played on six uniquely crafted hand-made cigar box guitars and Anna’s 1960’s Gibson Melody Maker!

Scionti’s other releases include: her 2019 album ‘Orphan Diary’ and her 2017 self- titled EP. ‘Orphan Diary’ debuted at No.4 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts. Spending seven months in the top 20, it was a nominee for ‘Best Blues Album’ at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards.

Having shared the stage with some of Australia’s finest blues players, Scionti is a regular on the Blues Train and at festivals including Thredbo Blues Festival (NSW), Australian Blues Music Festival (NSW), National Folk Festival (ACT), Great Southern Cigar Box Guitar Festival (VIC), Gympie Music Muster (QLD), Echuca Winter Blues Festival (VIC), Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival (VIC), Marysville Jazz & Blues Festival (VIC), and Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues (VIC).
