Multi-platinum artists Fitz and the Tantrums have quickly grown from independent upstarts to bonafide hitmakers. The LA-based band recently released their much-anticipated, fourth full length album “ALL THE FEELS,” featuring singles “123456” and “I Just Wanna Shine”. “ALL THE FEELS” follows the band’s 2016 release “FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS,” which spawned the group’s biggest hit to date, “HandClap.” The RIAA-certified 2x Platinum single has logged more than 400 million global streams, went top 5 on both the Hot AC and Alternative Radio charts, and also enjoyed major airplay across the country at Top 40. The band has brought the infectious energy of their live shows to the small screen, with nationally televised performances of “HandClap” on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” “Good Morning America,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “TODAY,” “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “America’s Got Talent,” and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the syndicated “Ellen DeGeneres Show” among others.
Fitz and the Tantrums’ eponymous album followed their breakout major label debut, “MORE THAN JUST A DREAM,” which featured back-to-back Platinum-certified, #1 Alternative Radio singles in “The Walker” and “Out Of My League.” Both singles also enjoyed Top 15 success at Hot AC.
Fitz and the Tantrums are: Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick (vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals), James King (saxophone, flute), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), Joseph Karnes (bass), and John Wicks (drums, percussion).
Since his 2011 self-titled debut, multiplatinum singer and songwriter Andy Grammer has consistently delivered stratosphere-size smashes buoyed by impressive range, deft musicality, and endless charisma. By 2019, he scored six chart-topping hits—each certified gold or better by the RIAA. The artist’s breakout “Fine By Me” and its follow-up “Keep Your Head Up” are both certified platinum. His 2014 sophomore offering, Magazines or Novels, went gold and yielded the gold “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah).” During this chapter, the single “Honey, I’m Good” reached quadruple-platinum status globally, emerging as “one of the best-selling songs of 2015.” He maintained this streak on 2017’s The Good Parts. The standout “Fresh Eyes” tallied over 350 million streams, achieving a platinum plaque. Not to mention, he consistently sold out headline gigs everywhere. Building upon that foundation, his 2019 fourth full-length, Naïve [S-Curve Records/BMG], amplifies both the message and the musicianship. Robust instrumentation upholds a feeling of unabashed positivity for Grammer throughout. This uplifting spirit defines the first single “Don’t Give Up On Me.” Featured in the big screen drama Five Feet Apart, the song clocked 18 million Spotify streams in three weeks between the original and R3HAB remix. From the bright “Wish You Pain” to the epic Lady Blacksmith Mambazo-assisted “She’d Say,” these moments commute and inspire happiness in its purest form on Naïve and beyond.
