With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Andy became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me.” The songs sold more than 1.5 million downloads combined.
In just a few short years, Andy has gone on to sell over 100,000 albums, play sold out venues nationwide, perform onstage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, appear on an array of national TV shows (including “Dancing with the Stars”), and receive two BMI Pop Music Awards, among many other accomplishments.
In 2013, Andy launched the KathyGramm campaign with Tahirih Justice Center to raise thousands of dollars to protect immigrant women and girls fleeing violence. The campaign honored the memory of his late mother, who was dedicated to women’s issues. Since then, Andy has continually tapped into his star power to help women and girls in danger, and he played a key role in Tahirih’s 2015 Baltimore-Greater DC Bighearted Attorneys Campaign.
