Billboard calls Hamish Anderson a "Guitar Hero" and premieres video for "No Good" from upcoming album




Australian-born, blues-rock artist Hamish Anderson  recently released his new video, "No Good," a preview of his new album due out in 2019. The track, which debuted on Relix Magazine, was selected for Spotify’s Official ‘Nu Blues’  playlist.  Hamish’s new single “No Good” picks up where Trouble (2016) left off - featuring heavier rock sounds and produced by 7 times Grammy winner Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Tedeschi Trucks) with drummer Johnny Radelat (Gary Clark Jr), bassist Chris Bruce (Meshell Ndegeocello) and organist Jerry Borge (Jonathan Wilson).

"'No Good'—a pounding rocker that recalls Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers at their most defiant and boasts some lightning-strike guitar work from Anderson." (Relix Magazine) 

Hamish spoke with premiere partner, Billboard’s renowned writer, Gary Graff, about the new video, explaining:

'My previous videos had been very story driven, so for this video I wanted to strip it all back to just what it feels like when we’re performing. I was influenced by imagery from the late 70s videos of The Rolling Stones (really from Some Girls/Emotional Rescue era) where it was them playing in NYC industrial warehouse-style environments. Super stark-- and really all about the band performing. In general, we wanted to play more with lighting and movement overall. I got really lucky to work with a great team and we all felt that the energy and the vibe of the song was truly captured in the video.”


Hamish Anderson openly counts as his influences guitar players and songwriters from Robert Johnson and BB King (Anderson was the last artist to open for King before he passed) to Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. Anderson has also shared the stage  with Drive By Truckers, The Rides (featuring Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg), Robert Cray, Los Lobos, Low Cut Connie and Vintage Trouble.
