About Me
Los Angeles pop-rockers Anny Celsi and Nelson Bragg team up with Dublin’s Maitland to form a high-energy, high-flying trio. It’s Brill Building hooks, Byrds-y harmonies and Beatle-esque psychedelia, inspired by songwriters like Nick Lowe, Kirsty MacColl and Chrissie Hynde..”

Celsi’s style has been described as “beatnik cool,” “pop-noir,” and “slightlydelic pop jangle.” Intimate and incisive, Anny’s live shows bring wit, soul and energy to the traditionally mellow singer/songwriter format – and prove that ‘girl-with-guitar’ has no limits.

While Bragg’s day job is percussionist-vocalist with The Brian Wilson Band, between tours he’s also found time to release two critically acclaimed albums of his own.

Maitland has played with pop heroes Picturehouse, Pugwash and XTC. His “Lullabies for the 21st Century” is “a trip through the acid-tinged English foothills of rainyday sunshine pop.”

“One of this city’s smartest and catchiest songwriters.” -- LA WEEKLY

“These are pop songs for which the phrase 'perfect pop song' was invented.” – ROOTSTIME (Belgium)
"Think of Victoria Williams, Aimee Mann, Suzanne Vega and Sheryl Crow mixed together and you begin to get the picture...Anny is pretty much their equal as a songwriter." -- TWO LOUIES

“First-class handmade music with songs that run deep enough to appeal to the folk & roots crowd…an original artist with a unique sound.” - CHILL@BLUEROSE

“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

Touring UK with Nelson Bragg & Duncan Maitland - August 2017

Getting the band back together! The three of us have not toured together as a group since 2011. This year, Nelson Bragg and Duncan Maitland will join me for a three week UK blitz of high-energy, high-flying acoustic folk-pop, ala The Byrds, Nick Lowe, Kirsty MacColl and the Beatles.

Nelson's day job is percussionist-vocalist with The Brian Wilson Band, currently on tour and ending up in Newcastle, where we'll start the tour. Besides his work with Brian and other artists, he's found time to release two critically acclaimed albums of his own.

Duncan, who lives in Dublin, has played with pop heroes Picturehouse, Pugwash and XTC. His “Lullabies for the 21st Century” is “a trip through the acid-tinged English foothills of rainyday sunshine pop.”

Tour dates start August 10th at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and continue through the 30th at What's Cookin' in London. We still have dates to fill in along the way, so get in touch if you'd like to have us over!

Details to follow.
Join us!!

We both blame it on the Beatles

She's Texas and I'm Portland, but we both got the bug from Liverpool.

Tish Hinojosa and I start our spring UK/Europe tour Monday night with a show right here in Southern California, at Altadena's Coffee Gallery.  Here's a little write-up from the Pasadena Weekly:

Anny Celsi & Tish Hinojosa England, Ireland, Germany and The Netherlands

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…

Last two dates in Europe: Brussels & Cologne

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…

We'd be keen, but we're a very small venue Anny, only 50 max - would that work for you? We could do 24 0r 25 May (24th would be difficult for you, given you are in London the previous day). Email us on centre@cromarty-training.com   Thanks - Mairi

Will do...I'm a bit behind on the Europe part of things because of all the other stuff going on, waiting to hear back from folks, etc.  Started bearing down on it last night.
