After being named one of Yahoo! Music’s “Top Ten Best New Artist,” Australia’s roots rock artist, Hamish Anderson performed 11 sets during SXSW (2017) opened for Vintage Trouble, Jared & The Mill, Low Cut Connie and toured the US as well as appeared at US festivals such as Firefly, Echo Park Rising, Mountain Jam, High Sierra, Big Blues Bender, Summerfest, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival (MainStage on Saturday and opened for Drive By Truckers late night) and Canada’s RBC Bluesfest Ottawa. He was featured as a Taco Bell “Feed the Beat” artist and KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with his single, “U”, which was profiled also on NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation along with his entire album, Trouble.
Three years after Australian born, LA based Hamish Anderson’s debut album, Trouble, introduced his music to the masses and garnered accolades for his songwriting and guitar playing, he is kicking off his new album Out Of My Head releasing in May, 2019.
Over the years, he’s been proclaimed a “singer, songwriter and guitar hero” (Billboard.com), a Top 10 Best New Artist (Yahoo! Music, 2016) and a Top 10 Best New Guitarists in the World (Total Guitar, 2018) .
Now, with singles such as 2018’s rockers “Breaking Down” and “No Good” and his 2019 release, a soulful ballad “What You Do To Me,” all receiving national radio support in the US, Germany and Australia, Hamish’s sophomore record Out Of My Head already illustrates the sonic diversity of his craft as a matured, thoughtful, and effectively emotive song-writer. While “Breaking Down” and “No Good” are superb examples of rollicking rock, they are just one of many genres that Hamish dips his toes into on the new album Out Of My Head, produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Tedeschi Trucks Band). Americana, soul, pop, roots, blues, rock; that’s a lot of ground to cover, but Hamish does it with a natural ease that’s far beyond his years. The mellow ("What You Do To Me", "Damaged Goods") and the upbeat ("No Good", "You Give Me Something") tracks on this record sit comfortably next to each other; all buoyed by a knack for clever, hook-driven songwriting and a clear, burning passion that drives the music from the first strum to the last. Three songs from Out of My Head are on Spotify’s Nu Blues Official Playlist.
Hamish has opened for BB King, The Rides (featuring Stephen Stills), Vintage Trouble, Drive By Truckers, Doyle Bramhall II, Low Cut Connie; and toured the US while appearing at US festivals such as BottleRock, Firefly, performed 11 performances at SXSW (2017); Echo Park Rising, Mountain Jam, High Sierra, Big Blues Bender, Summerfest, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and Canada’s RBC Bluesfest Ottawa.
Kicking off 2019, Hamish opened for Gary Clark Jr on his Australia tour, appeared at Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN and he will continue touring US, Canada and Europe throughout the rest of the year in support of his new album release.
Hamish’s second album, entitled Out of My Head, released May 2019.
