Anna Scionti (Shon-tee) is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, guitarist and bottleneck slide player making her own style of music steeped in blues, roots and rock. Scionti walks her own creative path mixing it up on cigar box, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitars.

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: 2019 album ‘Orphan Diary’ and her 2017 self-titled EP. ‘Orphan Diary’ debuted at No.4 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts, spent seven months in the top 20, and was a nominee for ‘Best Blues Album’ at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards. A regular at festivals including Thredbo Blues Festival (NSW), Australian Blues Music Festival (NSW), National Folk Festival (ACT), Echuca Winter Blues Festival and, of course, Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival (VIC).
