About Hamish Anderson (VIC)

Not many twenty-three year old blues/rock guitarists can claim to have opened for BB King on tour in the US, but that is exactly Hamish Anderson’s destiny, as he recently finished a tour with the legendary Blues guitarist in September and October 2014. Having made a name for himself in Melbourne, Australia for his impressive live show that encompasses a mix of electric blues-soaked rock and modern roots songs, Hamish Anderson’s self-titled debut EP was released independently in No- vember 2013. His second EP, RESTLESS, will release in October, 2014, with the first single, Burn, already earning stellar reviews on IndieShuffle.com, Torrent This TV in Australia and Guitar World.

On RESTLESS, Hamish Anderson teams up with producer/engineer Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones, Counting Crowes). Recorded in Los Angeles at Henson Studios, the EP showcases Anderson’s blues infused rock and lyrical imagery. The single “Burn,” is an adrenaline-charged blues explosion, charged with classic guitar riffs and dramatic drumbeats. The other tracks on RESTLESS (“Shotgun,” “Little Lies” “Restless” and “Street Lights”) showcase Anderson’s wide-ranging guitar talents along with his distinctive vocals. In addition, Grammy-ward-winning pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz (Tom Petty, Ray LaMontagne) adds his magic to “Shotgun” and “Street Lights.”

Anderson recorded his first EP with Eric J. Dubowsky (Weezer, Bluejuice), Rami Jaffee (keyboardist for Foo Fighters and founding member of The Wallflowers) stopped past the studio to record organ and piano, alongside bass player Rob Calder (Angus & Julia Stone, Kanye West). Both EPs were mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Dr John, The Shins).
