When Mike Posner was in tenth grade, an advanced placement course in American History changed his life. "We read about all these different people who had made an impact on U.S. history and I started to feel terrified that I'd never be remembered after I left this earth," Posner says. "That's the scariest thing in the world to me. Music is a way I can make my mark. That's what I think about every day: creating something timeless in a finite amount of time."
The 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer has taken a major step toward achieving his goal with the release of his debut album, 31 Minutes To Takeoff - an eclectic, lovingly crafted collection of soulful tunes that showcase his innovative spirit and motivation to create something that sounds like nothing else out there. Posner co-wrote and/or co-produced every song on the album, conjuring up killer hooks and irresistible beats with a host of top-notch collaborators, including Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Katy Perry), Greg Kurstin (Kylie Minogue, Lily Allen), The Smeezingtons (Bruno Mars, B.o.B., Travie McCoy), and members of legendary R&B vocal group Boyz II Men (who provide soulful harmonies on "Deja Vu").
In March 2009, Posner released his first dorm-room recorded mixtape, A Matter of Time, by exploiting a loophole in the iTunesU software, which allows professors to post their lectures for free download. Featuring re-workings of Beyonce's "Halo," songs by The Fray and E.L.O., as well as guest vocals by Posner's hometown friend, Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean, A Matter of Time climbed to No. 1 on iTunesU. That spring, Posner juggled studying during the week with spending each weekend performing for college kids across the country, crashing on their couches and in their campus common rooms.
