Andy Grammer performed for three-and-a-half years as a busker. During this period of the time he perfected his writing skills as an artist. Andy told us
: "I don't know if you've ever done that on the street, but if you're walking by someone and you go, 'Whoa, this guy blew me away and I had no idea I was going to see music today, I actually want to give $10 to buy his CD,' for that moment to occur, you've got to be damn good."
"And it took me three years to really figure that out, out there. By the time my manager came and found me and things started to move, I'd been trained pretty intensely on the level of excellence that you need to actually serve someone's ears."
