Andy Grammer is the son of a Grammy-nominated children's performer Red Grammer. He often joined his dad on stage to sing, promoting his fierce ambition to succeed. His father instilled his work ethic and taught him to respect his audience. "I saw what it took to cultivate an artistic career," Grammer says.
By ninth grade, Grammer taught himself to write songs on his dad's guitar, with a first group, Out of the Blue, which played his first original composition, "Doorstep," at a battle of the bands contest.
With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, "Keep Your Head Up" and "Fine By Me," certified Platinum and Gold respectively, selling more than 1.5 million downloads combined.
In just a few short years, Grammer has gone on to sell over 100,000 albums, play sold out venues nationwide, perform onstage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, appear on an array of national TV shows, receive major song placements in film and TV, and receive two BMI Pop Music Awards.
His platinum debut Top 5 hit single "Keep Your Head Up" video won an MTV O Award for Most Innovative. His second single off his debut album, “Fine by Me” also sailed into the Top 10 on the Adult Pop Chart, and was certified gold. “Miss Me,” his third single off his album, climbed to #15 at Hot AC. Music videos for all three hit singles reached the Top 10 on VH1’s “Top 20” weekly video countdown. For more information, visit: www.andygrammer.com.
