Why you can't miss it

Andy Grammer is the type of artist you put on to listen to a hit like "Fresh Eyes" or "Honey, I'm Good" ... but then leave on to play through his entire catalog, deep cuts and all. His music is down to earth and relatable with the pop sensibility of Maroon 5 and Matt Nathanson. Maintaining an optimistic lens, he effortlessly shines a light on the good and the bad of life. Listen closely and you'll realize his lyrics are more profound than the bright hits he's known for.

Song starter pack

The Hit: "Fine By Me"

The first single off his self-titled debut album went platinum. Far from a one-hit wonder, this song was the tipping point for Grammer's avalanche of hits.

B-Side Beauty: "She'd Say" (with Ladysmith Black Mambazo)

The choir from Ladysmith Black Mambazo gives this song instant Paul Simon vibes, and it creates the perfect backdrop for Grammer's lyrics. He sings words of love and encouragement to his daughter from the perspective of his deceased mom, giving the advice it seems only moms can know. Pop your headphones in for this one, and it might just sound like something your mom would say.

Can't Wait to See it Live: "Fresh Eyes"

Grammer created over 100 songs for the album "The Good Parts" – and fortunately, "Fresh Eyes" made the cut. Boasting over 337 million listens on Spotify, there is no doubt everyone in the crowd will be singing along to this one.
