REVIEWS FOR 'MORE GUITARS THAN FRIENDS'
“Anni Piper...is a vixen, a vamp, a tease and every woman scorned....Thing is, what strikes me most about Anni Piper is her incredibly fun sense of humor, a trait that shows itself from beginning to end of her latest release: More Guitars Than Friends.”
REVIEWS FOR ‘JAILBAIT’
“Piper has the kind of voice that lulls men to their doom. It’s soft and sweet when it wants to be, scared and vulnerable a moment later, then ripping through you like a razor… Piper commands songs utterly.”
Jeremy Loome, The Edmondton Sun, Canada
REVIEWS FOR ‘TWO’S COMPANY’
“With her voice somewhat akin to Janiva Magness, this is solid blues.”
Jim Hynes, ‘Elmore’ magazine, USA
“Australia has produced several noteworthy blues and roots acts in recent years, including some remarkable female vocalists. Anni Piper’s two previous releases... established her as a card-carrying member of that club......Two’s Company offers 12 tracks driven by Piper’s distinctive, smoky alto, but it also highlights her considerable talent on bass....”
Jonathan Black, ‘Blues Revue’ magazine, USA
“She has the kind of voice and delivery that goes straight to your heart. The music is passionate in-your-face blues and blues rock, played well and best heard LOUD.... Anni Piper will, as my friend Don says, melt your face right off.”
Sunday Night Blues Project, USA
“Anni uses this album and takes on a fantastic journey.... I simply cannot decide which is better or more effective: her vocals, her bass playing or her undeniably strong composition potential.”

Piper began playing bass guitar at age 14. By 19 years of age, she had completed a Bachelor of Contemporary Music degree at Southern Cross University. Piper remembers with clarity the first time she heard the blues back in her school days (“It was Paul Butterfield Blues Band playing ‘Born in Chicago’ - I knew straight away this was the direction I was heading.” she says).
Piper has also appeared on popular Australian television programs “Rage” (ABC TV), “Landed Music” (SC10) and “The Susie Show” (WIN TV) to promote her songs. Her recordings have received extensive airplay throughout the world.
She now calls Portland OR home, having relocated to the U.S. where she performs live frequently to enthusiastic audiences.
