Some Recent Reviews of “More Guitars Than Friends”

“An entertaining album with some fine comic songs, a good vocalist, and solid musicianship.”                    

BLUES BLAST

“A strong addition to Anni Piper’s catalog. Though a departure from her more popular Texas Blues, and swing music that her fans have come to expect, it is a good record that stands up well to repeated listening. Piper’s ability to write songs in genres other than the blues has grown with each new release, as has the emotional maturity of her singing.”

MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE

“The sultry bass-playing blues-woman from Down Under offers a wry line in her lyrical story-telling. Piper’s voice provides a smooth and soulful feel, mixed up with a coquettish twinkle in “I’m Lost Without You.” She gives a raucous earthy feel to “Paper Bag,” which demonstrates her vocal dexterity, and has a great saxophone solo from Charlie De Chant (Hall & Oates band).”

NATIONAL BLUES REVUE

 “More Guitars Than Friends puts Piper’s considerable musical talents and smart songwriting on full display….a captivating mix of blues, rock and soul that features her deep and sultry vocals and her formidable skills on the bass guitar.

 BLUES BYTES

The ten-song disc, the first to be released on Piper’s own Sugar Daddy Records imprint, is a lively potpourri of sounds. “All the original songs on the album were written since I moved to the US about a year ago”, states Piper. More Guitars Than Friends was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Solar Studio (using exclusively solar power) in Orlando, FL.

Anni Piper – often referred to as “Australia’s First Lady of the Blues” – blends deep, sexy vocals with a high-energy bass playing style (often barefoot), making for a thoroughly enjoyable live experience. Anni first started playing electric guitar at age twelve, but switched to bass two years later.  In 2004 Piper released Jailbait, which earned her “Best New Talent”at the 2005 Australian Blues Music Awards. Subsequent album releases include 2007’s Texas Hold ‘Em, 2009’s Two’s Company (which reached #1 on the Australian Roots music chart and #21 on the Living Blues chart), 2010’s Chasin’ Tail (released by Blues Leaf Records), and 2013’s Split Second, a duet effort with Nicole Hart.
