“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
“Gripping, dynamic…His bread and butter is clearly still his passion for the various forms of blues. He demonstrates his mastery of the genre… a showcase for his smoldering vocals and guitar heroics.”- Relix 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
