Acclaimed multi-platinum pop singer and songwriter Andy Grammer, who is known for engaging, energizing and empowering audiences across the world with his chart-topping radio hits, has today announced his forthcoming The Art of Joy Tour. The 17-date run will kick off at Resorts World in Monticello, NY on Friday, February 4, 2022 with stops in Cleveland, Boston, New York, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco and more before wrapping on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at Uptown Theatre in Napa, CA.
The announcement comes on the heels of Andy’s new single “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me,” which he wrote about boldly owning your individuality. It leans into irreverent and rhythmic pop energy that will leave anyone feeling great after one listen. The song has been one of the most added tracks at Adult Pop radio the past two weeks, just charted and has 60 percent of the stations at the format already spinning the song. Coast to coast major market support includes KBIG/LA, K101/San Francisco, KDMX/Dallas, WWBX/Boston and WDVD/Detroit. The official music video was recently released and features Andy celebrating the uniqueness of people at a wild karaoke dance party.
“Damn It Feels Good To Be Me” follows “Lease On Life,” a song created under the inspiration of a newfound perspective Andy gained during the pandemic. His second daughter was born two weeks into the lockdown, and as months rolled on with future touring and recording more uncertain than ever, he did a whole lot of soul-searching and grasped for meaning. Through personal analysis, some very helpful therapy, and a lot of time with his family, he began to derive self-worth from within rather than outside of himself, which helped realign his approach to music in the process.
Both tracks will be featured on Andy’s forthcoming fifth full-length album due out in early 2022.
