CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

                                                   ANNI PIPER - BACKGROUND

     Piper first started playing electric guitar at age twelve, but switched to bass at age fourteen.  In 2004 Anni released an album entitled "Jailbait" in her native Australia, for which she won "Best New Talent" at the 2005 Australian Blues Music Awards. Subsequent album releases include 2007's "Texas Hold 'Em," 2010's "Chasin' Tail" (released by Blues Leaf), and her newest, 2013's "Split Second."
