URBAN BLUES & ECLECTIC STEEL SLIDE
Melbourne blues songstress Anna Scionti (pronounced Shon-tee) is a singer/songwriter guitarist and bottleneck slide player. Scionti’s uninhibited foot stomping blues is honest and raw. On cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and stomp you will be deeply immersed into her world of electrified rhythmic tunes.
Scionti’s new 2019 album ORPHAN DIARY is a collection of original songs telling stories of love, loss, and longing from her childhood to now. Having lost both parents in her teenage years, this album is uninhibited, raw and unapologetic in its honesty. Orphan Diary marks the follow up to her 2017 self-titled EP which debuted at No.2
on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts.
ORPHAN DIARY has remained in the charts for 5 months since its release
debuting in May at No.4
Having shared the stage with some of Australia’s finest blues players, including Fiona Boyes and Geoff Achison, Anna is a regular on the Blues Train as well as festivals including Thredbo Blues Festival (NSW), Australian Blues Music Festival (NSW), the Great Southern Cigar Box Guitar Festival (VIC), Yackandandah Cigar Box Guitar Festival, Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival (VIC), Docklands Blues Music Festival (VIC), Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues (VIC) and the National Folk Festival (ACT),
