“U” is the third, and latest single from Hamish Anderson’s debut album, produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Ryan Adams). The song features Chris Bruce (Doyle Bramhall II) on bass, Aaron Sterling (John Mayer) on drums and Jerry Borge (Jonathan Wilson) on keys. The album was mastered by Brian Lucey at Magic Garden Mastering in Los Angeles.
Anderson shares, “We wanted to do the majority of it live, with very few overdubs, get a really great band together and have it be about the songs, not about spending so much time on how the bass drum sounds. It was capturing, warts and all, the live thing. Rock music and blues music shouldn’t be perfect, and I’m really proud that there’s no Auto-Tune on it, that nothing was done to a click track.”
A deep collection of standout rock and blues tracks, including “Hold On Me,” “Fire,” “U,” “Working Blues,” “My Sweetheart, You,” and the first single, “Trouble” (which was immediately championed by Spotify and spun on radio stations coast to coast), Trouble released on October 21st to stellar reviews.
