Andy Grammer started as a busker on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. As a child, he learned to play the trumpet and later the guitar and piano. He began writing songs at 15.
He credits his music influences to three genres of music: guitar players (like Jason Mraz and John Mayer and ; modern pianists (like Coldplay, and OneRepublic), and hip-hop vocalists (like Common, and Lauryn Hill)
He also was one of our acoustic session performers, and said performing live music is his whole reason for existing!
