(New York – NY) – Emerging and much buzzed about singer / songwriter / producer Mike Posner has signed to J Records. After self releasing his first mixtape A Matter of Time in March, it gained instant popularity and soared to become the #1 free download on iTunesU.
A Matter Of Time is a genre spanning mixtape that includes Posner originals “Drug Dealer Girl” and perhaps his most ubiquitous song “Cooler Than Me” which features Kanye West protégée Big Sean.
“At the tender young age of 21, Mike Posner is already a gifted artist, producer, writer, performer and obviously student as he got into Duke University, where he still has his senior year ahead of him! says Barry Weiss, Chairman and CEO, RCA/JIVE Label Group. “He is an artist that is already touching his peers through a vibrant on-line presence of his songs. Hats off to Peter Edge for bringing Mike into the company. We are excited.”
21 year old Posner hails originally from Southfield, MI and is about to begin his senior year at Duke University where he is majoring in Sociology and Business. He is currently in the studio working on his debut album which is scheduled for release later this year.
Posner states, “I can’t think of a better way to start my senior year of college than by signing a record deal with J Records. I’ve been hard at work in the studio all summer and can’t wait to share my music with the world.”
