Andy Grammer is a songwriter and musician based in Los Angeles who rose to recognition when he released his debut self titled LP in 2011.
Andrew Charles Grammer is an American singer/songwriter and record producer originally from California. A relative newcomer to the American music scene, his debut self titled album was released in 2011 however his musical origins can be traced back to his youth where Grammer learnt to play the trumpet, followed by the guitar and piano under the constant encouragement of his father Red Grammer who was a singer/songwriter at the time. At the age of 15 he turned his talents to songwriting, and by 20 he left Binghamton University in his hometown of Chester, New York and returned to the Los Angeles area where he currently lives.

He pursued a degree in Music Industry Studies at the California State University in Northside and with his early interests in music he set about making a name for himself in the industry in which he had studied. He takes his main influences from a mixture of three main genres. The guitar lead music of John Mayer and Jason Mraz; the piano heavy Coldplay, Onerepublic and The Fray and the complex lyrical ability of hip hop artists such as Lauryn Hill, Jay Z and Kayne West.
His beginnings are humble, starting at the very bottom as a street busker before being discovered in 2010 by his manager and signing to S-Curve Records. His debut video to single ‘Keep Your Head Up’ was featured as iTunes Video of the Week in 2010 and went on to chart within the top 100 of the US Billboard chart, a difficult feat for a new artist. Due to the interest around this release, the debut album topped the US Billboard New Artist Chart. In January Billboard noted Grammer as an artist to watch after the success of his debut, his ever growing fan base and a successful supporting slot for the Plain White T’s.
After the release of the album, Grammer earned another prestigious opening slot for Natasha Bedingfield on her Less Is More Tour in June 2011. After a successful promotional campaign and an original release, Grammer released the anticipated first single of his follow up ‘Back Home’ on March 25, 2014. The album ‘Magazines or Novels’ charted at #27 on the US charts, a huge gain commercially for the young artist.
