Wednesday, July 25: Andy Grammer
The Summer Concert Series kicks off on July 25 with pop artist Andy Grammer.
Multi-platinum selling pop artist Andy Grammer is all about inspiring and empowering the world by communicating his truths through his music. The first male pop star in a decade since John Mayer to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, Grammer has taken the music world by storm with a succession of anthemic pop hits, 6 of which are certified gold or better. His debut album featured the platinum singles “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me.” Andy’s second album, Magazines or Novels, featured the triple platinum infectious smash hit “Honey, I’m Good,” which was one of the best-selling songs of 2015, and the certified gold anthem “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah).” Andy’s third full length album, The Good Parts, was released December 1, 2017. The record includes his global smash hit single “Fresh Eyes,” which has become a streaming phenomenon with over 300 million total streams, the catchy summer jam featuring LunchMoney Lewis, “Give Love,” as well as his NEW hit single “Smoke Clears.”
Wednesday, August 1: X Ambassadors
The second concert is set to be headlined by X Ambassadors, performing all their hits, including “Renegades,” “Unsteady,” and more.
KIDinaKORNER/Interscope band X Ambassadors’ debut album, “VHS,” reflected on the events that shaped the lives of lead vocalist and lyricist Sam Harris and his older brother, keyboardist Casey Harris, growing up in Ithaca, New York. The gold-certified album, which Rolling Stone called “bombastic rock that’s as stomping as it is diaristic, leavened by big-tent pop hooks and a hint of hip-hop swagger,” debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and spawned the platinum-selling “Renegades,” which spent 12 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Alternative chart, and the double-platinum “Unsteady.” The success of “VHS” sent X Ambassadors on a nearly two-year touring odyssey that found them winning over fans around the world and performing at the Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life Is Beautiful and Shaky Knees festivals, among others, and establishing themselves as a world-class rock band. X Ambassadors released the impassioned “Ahead of Myself,” the first single off their forthcoming sophomore set, and followed that up with “Joyful” and “Don’t Stay.” X Ambassadors returned to Ithaca this past fall to co-headline their inaugural Cayuga Sound Festival with The Roots, giving back to the community that nurtured their talent.
