REVIEWS FOR 'JANUARY'
“These are pop songs for which the phrase 'perfect pop song' was invented.” – Rootstime
“The pop doesn’t get much smoother or cooler ... Anny and her supporting cast of All-Stars deliver the hits in spades. Chill out through the Summer doldrums with this nine-pack of goodness from the “Queen of Cool-Pop” -- SHOCKPOP!
“….it’s just the perfect music; all summery, sunshine pop with gorgeous harmonies abounding…this rootsy, pop-flavoured collection of self-penned songs is a genuine winner.” –Maverick Magazine UK
“…familiar styles -sunshine pop, country flavored rock -but done with a fresh approach and melodies that sound like instant hits.” – Cabin Essence
“Fans of Aimee Mann, Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega and Jackie DeShannon will find much to enjoy … the tracks on January turn back the clock to a time when pop music was taken seriously” – Today Online
REVIEWS FOR 'TANGLE-FREE WORLD'
“… Byrdsian jangle and exquisite psyche-pop harmonies perfect for a long car ride…Fans of classic sixties pop influences should pick this one up right away.” – Aaron Kupferberg, Powerpopaholic
"Anny is one of those artists whose lyrics stand on their own even without her melodies. But at the end of the day it’s in her vocals, while hours could be spent discussing which traces of our favourite female singers from the last 50 years can be heard in her songs, Anny does have a sound of her own and she is the owner of one of those voices that you can’t help but fall in love with. Anny is, simply, a superb vocalist." - Pennyblack Music
“… a glorious and lovingly crafted tribute to an era that continues to resonate to this day. In an age of throwaway dance anthems and cookie-cutter R’n’B, it is refreshing to have dedicated artists and musicians remind us of the beauty and wonder of what pop music once was in its heyday. That such wondrous music can still be re-created in our modern times gives me hope and encouragement for the future.” –Kevin Mathews, Bucketfull o’ Brains
“I have a feeling that a good many Maverick readers will readily embrace this excellent album… they don't come much better than Now You Can Hurt Me, which could have been a 1960's DeShannon classic or the country-flavoured First Love Freezes with its Byrds-vibe and lush string arrangement. Yeah, seek out and enjoy.” – Alan Cackett, Maverick
“Had I been able to give it a proper listen sooner, it definitely would have earned a place in my 2009 year-end top 10…Anny Celsi’s beautifully expressive voice…is at once sweet and soulful, with a depth and richness that eludes many singers.” -- John Borack, Goldmine
“Chock full of slightlydelic pop jangle and West Coast harmonies…just a few seconds into the opening title track, and you’re being pulled into the same paisley patterned swirl as the one The Bangles caused…” – Goran Obradovic, Shindig

There's nothing like seeing the world with a guitar and a good girlfriend! On last year's European tour, I joined forces with my dear friend Tish Hinojosa, from Austin Texas, who was living in Hamburg at the time. Tish just released a marvelous new album, 'After the Fair,' which she recorded in Berlin with producer Moe Jaksch. We had a blast traveling together, along with our Dublin mate Duncan Maitland, from London to Glasgow to the highlands of Scotland, and then throughout Germany to…Continue

Having returned to the mainland via the Stena Line, I've been busy with radio sessions and last night''s premiere music event at the new Peter en Leni's Podium Cafe in Steendam. Next Friday I perform solo at the Rock Classic Cafe in Brussels, and I've just added a gig at McMuller's Irish-American Pub in Linnich-Kofferen, near Cologne, where I'll be joined by the fabulous Roland Wolff. I hear they serve great hamburgers and ribs! If you're in the neighborhood, please…Continue

Anny is back for her fifth European tour in May 2013. Her new album, January, once again combines Brill Building hooks with a storyteller’s eye for detail. Ghosts who haunt the corners of New Orleans’ French Quarter, winds carrying volcano dust from Iceland, boys who yearn to join the circus and the mystifying shards of our own broken-glass hearts – all are woven together into a travelogue of risk, resilience and renewal. This latest flight of songs will hook you from the…Continue
