Our final guest of season two is an artist, songwriter, and producer hailing from the hip-hop scene of Detroit, Michigan. He was still a student at Duke University when he came up with the idea for his first single "Cooler Than Me" which went on be a multi-platinum hit and earn more than 3 million in sales in the US. Since then, he has become one of the industry’s most in-demand songwriters, penning hits for the likes of Maroon 5 ("Sugar"), Justin Bieber ("Boyfriend"), Big Sean ("Don't Tell Me You Love Me"), and Labrinth ("Beneath Your Beautiful"). His self-penned triple platinum smash “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” from his sophomore album ‘At Night, Alone’ hit #1 in the US and earned him a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year. In addition to a successful solo career, he is a member of the alternative hip-hop duo Mansionz with blackbear. We’re honored to have our season finale feature this inspirational artist and songwriter. And the writer is…Mike Posner!
It is hard to find a songwriter more dedicated to spreading positivity and truth through music than this next guest. He is a multi-platinum hitmaker who is the first male pop star in a decade to reach the Top 10 on Adult Pop Radio with "Keep Your Head Up" and "Fine By Me" off of his debut self titled album. This success paved the road for his follow-up album ‘Magazines or Novels’, featuring his triple-platinum best selling song "Honey, I’m Good". Also featured on the album was his certified gold single "Good to be Alive (Hallelujah)". More recently, his highly anticipated third album, ‘The Good Parts,’ was released just last Friday, which includes his hit "Give Love (feat. LunchMoney Lewis)" as well as charting singles "Fresh Eyes" and "Smoke Clears". And The Writer Is... The genuine, the authentic, Andy Grammer!
