Andy Grammer Quotes
"My ultimate goal is to try to be real. It just so happens that I'm usually more happy than
sad when I'm writing. And in general I think that life is pretty great, and it's cool to be here, so that
comes through in my music. I don't have a dismal outlook, but I don't aim to make positive music.
It's just what I am."
"I have three different places that I draw inspiration from. There's the guitar guys like
Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Jack Johnson; piano influences like Coldplay, The Fray and OneRepublic. And then
I really love how hip-hop creates complexity in words. I love Common, Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
I try to make a smorgasbord of the three."
