For years, Andy Grammer
was afraid to reveal his true self to others and instead hid behind a mask. It was only when the COVID pandemic stripped him of the touring troubadour identity he'd cultivated that Grammer could step back and engage in some personal analysis. "I had the gift of time to re-examine a lot and realized that sometimes in an effort to fit in with culture I am tempted to turn myself down for the fear of not being accepted," he said.
Grammer wrote "Damn It Feels Good To Be Me" as a reminder to himself to follow the beat of his own drum. He said: "I want this song to be for those who have come to that point in their life where they're just FINALLY enjoying the freedom of self-acceptance."
