Singer Mike Posner launched his career at Duke University, where he balanced his undergraduate studies in sociology and business with his musical habits. Like fellow undergrad Asher Roth, Posner began making melodic pop-rap songs for the college crowd, filling his music with references to fraternity culture, dorm life, and young adulthood. He also compiled several mixtapes, one of which — A Matter of Time — topped the digital charts during the summer of 2009. After signing with J Records, he finished his degree, graduated with a 3.59 GPA, and released his full-length debut, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, in the summer of 2010. The album featured the worldwide hit “Cooler Than Me,” and reached the Top Ten in the U.S.

Adam Friedman, an Arizona native turned Californian, began his life in music obsessing over artists like Blink-182, Ray Charles, Eminem, and Coldplay. However, the magic didn’t really come alive until Friedman was confronted with problems in reading and writing. At the young age of 9, Adam’s mother and teacher insisted on using Hooked-On-Phonics to help resolve these early difficulties. Instead, Adam’s fascination with the tape machine resulted in him learning how to record music and represented the start of his career as a producer.
It wasn’t until Friedman placed his music in local commercials, throughout high school, that he realized he could turn his lifelong passion into a sustainable career. After graduating from the Berklee School of Music, Adam created “Glorious”, which became the theme song for an upcoming animated film Rock Dog in addition to catching the ear of Grammy Award Nominated Singer/Songwriter Mike Posner. Almost instantly, a friendship was formed and music was made. Adam worked with Mike throughout the recording process of his latest album At Night, Alone in addition to the first two singles officially released under Friedman’s project.
