In 2011, Andy Grammer emerged as one of the biggest success stories in the music business.  He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Live with Regis and Kelly. He was also the first male pop star since 2003 to reach the Top 5 at Adopt Pop Radio on his first single, “Keep Your Head Up”, which is now a certified Gold Record, quickly approaching Platinum.

Known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix, the acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician is now poised to make 2012 another big year. His headlining tour, featuring his follow-up single “Fine By Me”, started in January with most of the shows being sell-outs. He will be releasing a live EP, “Andy Grammer Live” next year.
