Mike Posner: The Power in Speaking Your Truth
takeaways from this episode:
When Mike gained fame but lost his way, and how he came home to himself when he got a second shot.
Mike's grounding relationship with his mother, and the grief process he’s gone through following the loss of his father.
How Jake Owen, Hank Williams, and Merle Haggard inspired the artist’s most recent hit song, “I Took A Pill in Ibiza”.
For The Curious,
This month, a few years back, a song was released called I Took A Pill In Ibiza. The first time you hear it, you immediately sense the honesty at its core.
I’m fortunate to have a lot of mutual friends with the writer and singer of that song – Mike Posner. It led me to Mike’s home and a conversation that made me feel like a longtime friend.
I love the melody and the lyrics of that song. Please listen to the acoustic version. It’s a straight shot to the soul. But what I love most about the song is how relevant it is to our own lives – constantly relevant. No matter what your situation, it’s so easy to avoid the truth when its uncomfortable.
This song is a reminder to never stop looking in the mirror.
