Songs about men stepping up their game to please their ladies is an eternal theme. Huey Lewis’ 1987 swingin’, bluesy “Doin’ It All For My Baby” set a high bar.

One of today’s top crooners, Adult Top 40 star star Andy Grammer, is doing his best with “Smoke Clears,” which moved into Top 15 territory over the holiday break, a culmination of the exposure the song received when Andy performed it on Thanksgiving day during half-time at the Detroit Lions/Minnesota football game, and at the Orange Bowl game in Miami, and also on New Years Eve from Times Square in NYC, all these performances leading up to his tour, which kicks off in March at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco.

.“Smoke Clears” is smooth, rhythmic, and polished.

Andy Grammer is 34-years old, from Los Angeles, and sings, writers and produces music.
