American Authors Announce Very Special Guest Andy Grammer!

American Authors Announce Very Special Guest Andy Grammer!

Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm that acclaimed platinum-selling singer, songwriter and musician Andy Grammer will be appearing as American Authors’ very special guest on the band’s upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand, treating audiences to a solo acoustic set.

Andy Grammer’s remarkable career started on the humble streets of Santa Monica, CA and quickly catapulted as he became the first male artist to hit the Top 10 on Billboard’s Adult Pop chart with his first two singles ‘Keep Your Head Up’ and ‘Fine By Me’. His infectious debut single ‘Keep Your Head Up’ (click here to watch) features in the globally acclaimed movie Pitch Perfect and is now closing in on 9 million views on Youtube and has been streamed over 8 million times on Spotify!

Since his breakthrough debut, Grammer has continued to take radio by storm, with his latest single ‘Back Home’ recently jumping into the NZ charts (click here to watch). A month since it hit the airwaves, ‘Back Home’ is fast becoming a sure fire pop hit after its inclusion in Australia's House Rules finale promo (watch the promo here) and has just been confirmed as the theme song for the ITM Rugby Cup via Sky TV and NZ Rugby. You can expect to hear 'Back Home' more and more this winter!

The joyously anthemic track is the strong lead single for Grammer’s second full-length album Magazines Or Novels (out 8 August through Liberator Music), pre-empting great things from this multi-talented musician and charismatic performer:

‘It seems like the years haven’t changed Andy’s knack for writing spirited pop anthems. ‘Back Home’ has the same infectious feel as his former chart-topping singles, and the same positive, invincible attitude. The lyrics are perfect for a fun summer track… and we dare you to try to not sing along to the chorus – it is too catchy not to.’ –Popcrush.com

This will be American Authors’ first time performing in New Zealand where their fan base continues to grow along with their unquestionable ability to churn out hit after global hit like ‘Best Day Of My Life’ and ‘Believer’, as well as dominate television screens with TV performances and features on some worldwide advertising campaigns.

If having American Authors touching down on our shores wasn’t big news in itself, having Andy Grammer (Aus/NZ shows) joining them is sure to create a frenzy in tomorrow’sFrontier Members pre-sale for what is now going to be a stellar, foot-stomping show - not to be missed!
