Six months ago, Gavin DeGraw was the victim of a vicious assault in New York City, an incident that left him hospitalized, but the singer says he has not had any lasting effects.

"I think I'm completely OK," the singer - whose latest album, "Sweeter," is in stores now - said on Tuesday's Access Hollywood Live .

"I always had a few scars on my face, so it kind of blended in with the rest of them," the 34-year-old told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.

Gavin also appears to have kept his sense of humor about the August incident.

"[Scars] which you can't see, because they're mostly inside, because I'm a musician," he continued with a laugh.

Adding, "I'm all good, I'm all good."

As previously reported on , the singer was assaulted by a group of people in the early hours of August 8, and was later possibly hit by a taxi (Gavin told Access at the time that he does not know if he was hit by or stumbled upon a taxi, after being bloodied in the attack) before being taken to New York's Bellevue Hospital.
