Los Angeles-born, New York-raised pop star Andy Grammer has gone from hustling street performer on Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade to platinum-selling recording artist. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Andy 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," certified platinum and gold respectively.
Andy's second album, 2014's critically acclaimed Magazines or Novels, continues his disarming success with his huge hit "Honey, I’m Good." Over the course of the last year, Andy’s double platinum-selling song became ubiquitous, topping sales, hitting #1 on adult pop radio for the first time and top 10 across 3 radio formats, garnering over 70 million views on YouTube and 60 million streams on Spotify, broadcasting on national TV everywhere and most recently became a country collaboration with Eli Young Band.
The euphoria of the year’s successes sparked an undeniable new emotion for the artist, so on a short stop in Los Angeles recently, Andy swiftly penned a new gem "Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)". The song was just released on iTunes.
"Life has so many ups and downs and this is about that pure bliss you feel when things are finally going your way," explains Grammer. "The lyrics 'good to be alive right about now' convey something that I think anyone who’s felt like they had a breakthrough can relate to."
