It's Grammer time!
Andy Grammer makes feel-good music. The pop singer-songwriter is known for upbeat songs with positive titles like the massive hit “Honey, I’m Good,” “Keep Your Head Up” and “Good to Be Alive (Hallelujah),” and he exudes warmth and inspiration. Grammer got his start working as a busker, and the kind of audience-pleasing attitude that leads to success as a street musician still infuses his music. Grammer’s latest album and tour are titled The Good Parts, and that pretty effectively describes the focus of his music.
It’s also the name of Grammer’s recently launched podcast, in which he discusses music and life with guests like country singer-songwriter Hunter Hayes, fitness personality Jillian Michaels and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. He’s also branched out into spoken word, taking moments during each of his concerts on the current tour to deliver his original poetry, which he plans to collect into a book. “This tour is really special,” Grammer told New Times in September. “There’s a palpable sweetness from everyone who’s come out thus far.” Grammer projects that sweetness in all of his work, and then he gets it right back from his fans.
