Grammer was raised in a musical household, with his father being a Grammy-nominated childrens’ performer. He grew up in Chester, New York where he attended Monroe-Woodbury High School. During his childhood years, he learned to play the trumpet, guitar and piano, and started to write songs in his teens. He enrolled at Binghamton University in Vestal, New York but eventually left the college in order to move back to Los Angeles and attend the California State University in Northridge, earning his BA in music industry studies.

After graduating in 2007, Grammer worked as a valet and later at McDonalds. He then became a street performer on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, and performed at venues such as the Viper Room. Being discovered by his future manager Aeety in 2009, Grammer signed to S-Curve Records the following year, which enabled him to pave his way from the streets to the center of the music industry. In 2011 he released an album called “Andy Grammer” with the two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me” reaching the Top 10 on Adult Pop Radio, becoming the first male pop star in a decade to achieve this since John Mayer in 2002. The songs were both certified Platinum and Gold, and sold over 1.5 million copies. Produced by Sam Hollander from Gym Class Heroes, Matt Radosevich, Dave Katz, and Matt Wallace from Maroon 5, its sales for the first week put Grammer at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard New Artist Chart. His music video for “Keep Your Head Up”, with ground-breaking interactive technology, and featuring actor Rainn Wilson, was named “Most Innovative Video” of 2011 at the MTV O Music Awards. All contributed to Grammer’s net worth.

The singer went on to participate in tours with Plain White T, Natasha Bedingfield, Train, Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat, Mat Kearney and Parachute, and performed at the SXSW festival. He also performed at various other shows with singers such as Kate Voegele and Kevin Hammond.

In 2013 Grammer released an EP called “Crazy Beautiful”, with songs “Crazy Beautiful” and “I Choose You”, as well as a live version of “Crazy Beautiful”. The following year he released the single “Back Home” from his next album “Magazines or Novels”. The album came out a year later and contained the popular hit “Honey I’m Good”, being certified triple-platinum and selected one of the best-selling songs in 2015. It reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Grammer’s highest charting single. Although it received mixed reviews, the album significantly added to Grammer’s wealth.

Among various accomplishments, Andy has won two BMI Pop Music Awards. In 2015 the singer joined the ABC dance competition show “Dancing with the Stars”, for its 21st season – Grammer’s partner was professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd, and later Allison Holker. He and Holker were eliminated during Week 8, finishing in 7th place. The same year Grammer performed on NBC’s “Today Show” and in the finale of “American Idol”.

In late 2015, the singer performed in the National Anthem at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, before the opening game of the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets.

When it comes to his private life, Grammer has been married to background singer and songwriter Aijia Lise, one of the contestants of the reality television singing competition “The Voice”. He is a member of Bahá’í Faith.

The singer is involved in philanthropy; he has joined Warriors In Pink, an organization that fights against breast cancer. In 2012, he hosted the Mentos Rock event in Los Angeles, donating $10,000 to a local music program.
