Welcome to episode number one of the New Music Business podcast! This interview with Andy Grammer was recorded live during my book signing event at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on January 16th, 2020. I’ve conducted hundreds of interviews over the years. Most of them were private, one-on-one just for me to write about. This was by far one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever conducted. Seriously. Andy dropped gem after gem after gem for artists, songwriters, and managers on how to approach songwriting, a music career, and just life in general.

Multi-platinum selling pop artist Andy Grammer is all about inspiring and empowering the world by communicating his truths through his music. Grammer is the first male pop star in a decade since John Mayer to reach the Top 10 at adult pop radio on his first two singles. His discography includes a succession of anthemic pop hits, including “Keep Your Head Up,” “Fine By Me,” “Honey, I’m Good.,” “Good to Be Alive (Hallelujah),” and “Fresh Eyes.” His most recent album Naive is home to his latest single, “Don’t Give Up On Me,” which quickly reached the Top 10 on iTunes and is already certified gold.
