New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Australia-born, blues-rock artist Hamish Anderson announces his new video, 'No Good' with a premiere on Billboard , who deems Anderson as a 'singer, songwriter and guitar hero.' 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 & produced by 7x 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).

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.'

Already praised by NPR, Billboard, American Songwriter, KCRW, Relix Magazine, among other tastemakers, Glide Magazine raves about Hamish, 'The young guitarist is a true talent ...we can expect big things from him in the coming years.'

Receiving heavy rotation on numerous radio stations globally (including KCRW, WBJB, KCSN and WEXT), Anderson has appeared at acclaimed music festivals in US, Canada and Europe- including Firefly, Mountain Jam, Summerfest, High Sierra, Telluride Blues Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest, SXSW, Echo Park Rising, Grolsch Festival, Moulin Blues and BottleRock Napa.

Hamish wrapped 2017 by being featured as a Taco Bell 'Feed the Beat' ' artist and after a month on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic', his single, a ballad called 'U", was profiled on NPR Music's Heavy Rotation' along with his entire album, Trouble. 'U' reached the Top 5 Tracks' of the Week and was also debuted on 'Best of Week ' playlist on Apple Music' in Australia & Japan. His debut album, 'Trouble' was released to stellar reviews, with Anderson being named a Top 10 Best New Artists in 2016'- by Yahoo! Music'. It's first single, the title track 'Trouble,' is still on Spotify's Blues & Roots Rock Official 'playlist two years after it's release. Likewise, Songpickr', a premiere Spotify playlist curator, included the album 'Trouble' as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2016. Anne Litt acknowledged on NPR the fact the album has been out for over a year (admitting 'yes, I slept on it' ), but also labeled 'Trouble ' as 'an album for the ages'.'

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.

Top 10 Best New Artists of 2017 '" Yahoo! Music

'He elaborated his sound on his full-length debut, 'Trouble.' On it, gorgeous tunes and tight guitar lines surround a voice of husky distinction.' '" Yahoo! Music

'Mellow, raw and dreamy. His rock ballad 'U' ...highlights Hamish's buttery blues vocal that melts with subdued guitar rhythms like havarti on pretty much anything'¦With an output like this, Hamish should have no doubt about the career he chose, he is truly a unique voice in a time that caters to synths and pop.' '" Culture Collide

'Trouble puts Anderson in a category with predecessors like Clapton and Richards, guys who slip comfortably between rock and blues songs.' '" Rock Cellar Magazine

'Australian Hamish Anderson is being hailed in many corners as 'the next big thing' in blues-rock'¦Watch out for him.' '" Elmore Magazine

"Venturing into reverb-laden 60s psychedelia, hazy blues club jams, and gritty slide guitar rock, Anderson pays glimmering homage to his string-bending heroes like Keith Richards and B.B. King on [Trouble].' '" East of 8th
