Anna Scionti Trio

Anna Scionti is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and bottleneck slide player who mixes it up on the cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitar. Scionti’s music is her own personal mix of blues, roots and rock.

While absorbing influences from her favourite artists, Scionti walks her own creative path. Her emotional-charged, electrified rhythmic tunes are drawn from driving guitars and honey-soaked, gravel infused vocals. 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 older 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. After spending seven months in the top 20, it was nominated for ‘Best Blues Album’ at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards.

We can’t wait to see Anna Scionti and her cigar box guitar on stage front and centre at Blues on Broadbeach 2022.
