Andy Grammer Keeps His Head Up In The Channel 957 Studio! [AUDIO, VIDEO & PHOTOS]

You often ask me if I love my job because of the artists I get to meet and all of the concerts I get to attend, and the answer is usually a 'yeah' or 'it depends on the artist!'   Well today, the answer is hands down (with heads high!) the former!

Up and coming artist, Andy Grammer, spent the afternoon in the studio before heading to the House of Blues for a concert in Chicago tonight!   First of all, he is adorable, 27 and single -- for any of you who are looking for Mr. Right!  Second, Andy seems to have his act together and not only knows how to work hard, but he does it with passion and a positive attitude!
