Mike Posner Unboxing | The Journey of Learning, Walking Across America & Summiting Everest

An accomplished singer, songwriter, Grammy-nominated, poet & producer, Mike Posner knows what it’s like to be rich and famous. He also knows what it’s like: To grieve. To grow. To embrace that which is most important. And ultimately express his truth through art. In 2010, while still an undergraduate at Duke, the Detroit native’s career exploded with the release of his debut song Cooler Than Me. The irresistible pop song topped charts worldwide, selling more than two million copies and launching him into the stratosphere almost overnight. But fame is fleeting. Unable to immediately top his debut, Mike’s solo career soon faltered. Turning to writing, Mike spent the next several years behind the curtain churning out hit songs for everyone from Justin Bieber (‘Boyfriend’) and Maroon 5 (‘Sugar’) to Pharrell, Snoop Dogg, Nick Jonas, and Avicii. Then, in 2016, his career as a solo artist once again blossomed. A remix of his song ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ unexpectedly surfaced as an international smash on the electronic dance scene, landing him a Grammy nomination for Best Song that year.

Mike has some wild and crazy adventure stories of walking across America to summiting Mt. Everest to being bitten by a rattlesnake and then having to face low air temperatures on Everest and avalanches and more. Has Mike become more aware of his own mortality?
