Musician Andy Grammer Shares His Haute Secrets to Los Angeles

Andy Grammer


Andy Grammer is one lucky guy. After being plucked straight off the Santa Monica Promenade, Grammer has has gone on to reach tens of millions of people worldwide—both via singles like “Keep Your Head Up,” “Honey, I’m Good,” “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)” and “Fine By Me” and as a competitor on Dancing With the Stars. This year, the blue-eyed crooner will release his third studio album. The record’s first single, “Fresh Eyes,” is currently a radio hit. On this velvety, groove-laden, pop gem, Andy radiates confidence for days and a romantic rock star takes center stage. Lyrically, “Fresh Eyes” paints a snapshot of those special moments when you realize you’ve fallen even more in love with your significant other. “It can be the littlest things,” says Grammer, “but the world stops for a moment and you’re like ‘oh my God, I love this person so much!” You can catch the soulful singer in L.A. next week when he hits The Greek Theatre on September 15th on his co-headlining tour with Gavin DeGraw. Now, it’s time to check out this L.A. native’s diverse picks for his favorite spots spanning the entire City of Angels.
