Today we have my friend, Mike Posner, who is a singer/songwriter, record producer, and poet on the episode. He’s known for releasing the popular studio albums, 31 Minutes To Takeoff, and At Night Alone.
He’s written songs for many popular artists like Justin Bieber, Labyrinth, Maroon 5, Nick Jonas, Big Sean, Nelly, Austin Mahone, and many others. He has earned numerous nominations for prestigious awards, like Grammys, and the MTV Video Music Awards.
Today we go through a wide range of emotions. We have a lot of fun while playing a song together, we play the guitar and sing together, we also talk about death and what death has taught him about the value of his own life.
He shares deeper about what losing his father, recently, and losing Avicii to suicide, has taught him about life. We also talk about how happiness is not a product of what we do and what keeps artists happy when they are not selling records or touring. We go into if he thinks anyone could live a life without pain and suffering, and so much more.
He’s a true artist, he is a true poet, and I think you’re going to enjoy what he shares about art and happiness, and finding your purpose through happiness in this episode.
