Platinum-selling recording artist Andy 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. 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. While hard at work on his highly anticipated sophomore album Magazines or Novels, Grammer released Back Home, a joyously anthemic track that illustrates his knack for writing infectious, relatable songs remains strong, as does his soaring voice. On the new album, Grammer reinforces his place among elite male pop artists through honest reflections of the impressive ride he's been on during the past couple of years. 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. "My favorite thing is writing from a bird's-eye view, whether it's a break-up or a good relationship. I like to be far enough away to see the whole scope of what's occurring." Opening for Grammer is Canadian band Zerbin who has shared the stage with The Flaming Lips, FUN., Said The Whale and AWOLNATION, cementing their status as a band to watch.
