After telling Becca and Rachel that a large part of being an artist is "rejection," Grammer went on to tell his own story about persevering through negativity and hard times.
He began, "So much of being an artist or any career is knowing how to push through rejection and not letting someone else define who you are or what your worth is."
The "Honey, I'm Good" artist explained that he used to perform for tips on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California, which he did for four years "before anything happened to me."
He shared, "I was practicing in my apartment to go play on the street for no one. For context, that is the lowest you get in the music industry: to be practicing really hard to be playing for no one. I’m practicing my heart out and I get a knock on the door and there’s a sticky note on my door that says, 'Your voice sucks. Give up the dream.'"
Grammer did not see who left the negative note, but he didn’t let it stop him from pursuing his music career.
"The universe is telling you to stop," he said. "That stuff happens pretty consistently to the point where you get thick enough skin where you’re not being oblivious — you want to be self-aware — but it’s just a part of it and you have to push through it."
He continued, "There’s a lot of moments where you have to decide 'Am I going to let some angry neighbor take me down, or am I going to just brush that off and keep pushing through?' The same thing happens when you go to the street and you’re performing."
Grammer said he'd "perform for eight hours and there’d be hours and hours where no one would stop or drop any tips in."
He gleaned an important lesson from that: "That’s the kind of resistance that you grow accustomed to."
Now, Grammer has chart-topping songs that are certified platinum.
