SXSW 2017 Interview: Hamish Anderson

Melbourne blues rocker Hamish Anderson has been on my radar for a few years following my previewing of SXSW 2015. That year, Carrie pinch-hit for me, seeing him at Sound Gallery presented by Sounds Australia on the Saturday at B.D. Riley’s. This year, I got two chances to see Anderson: a special VIP invitation to catch him at the National Geographic closing party Monday night as part of the Interactive stream of the SXSW Conference / Festival, followed by his triumphant return to Sound Gallery on Saturday.

After his performance Saturday at B.D. Riley’s, Anderson was chilled out, having done his final work of the week, finally able to fully relax and take in the city. As I had guessed, there aren’t that many blues artists in Australia, so Anderson feels right at home when he’s in our country. I feel honoured that he introduced me to one of his guitars, Blondie, and he talks about how it felt so much more comfortable and felt more prepared the second time around showcasing at SXSW. We also talk about his debut album ‘Trouble’, which was released last year. Listen to the interview below. For more on TGTF on Hamish Anderson, including my coverage that posted yesterday of his performance at the National Geographic closing party, follow this link.
