Mike Posner

Why Success Isn’t the Answer

-------------------------

Between his two hit songs “Cooler Than Me” and “I Took A Pill In Ibiza,” Grammy-nominated musician Mike Posner found himself questioning not only his place in the music industry but in the world all together. His fascinating journey of introspection included trips to India, a meditation retreat, isolation at a Buddhist Monastery and more life-changing experiences.
