Grammy nominated Detroit native singer-songwriter and producer Mike Posner, whose career-catapulting “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” is now the 10th most streamed song of all time on Spotify with 1 billion streams, announces the winners of the Amor Fati Music Academy scholarship program today. The fellowship will take place in Telluride, CO, on May 16th – May 23rd.
“I’m at the point in my career where I don’t want to devote all my energy to making myself more and more successful, and I want to dedicate some of my energy to helping other people be successful in the music industry as well. At Amor Fati Music Academy our mentors will pass down the years of wisdom and knowledge they have amassed in the music industry to young artists. We have some of the best artists, producers, and voice teachers in the world mentoring young adults. We have more mentors than mentees so the level of attention for the mentees will be unparalleled. Also, this will take place in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Telluride, CO.” – Mike Posner
The goal of the Amor Fati program is to award fellowships to five hand selected aspiring artists that will provide them with a unique week-long immersion into songwriting, production and computer software. While spending time in the mountains, they will learn studio skills and how to write/produce/record songs (to which they will retain ALL rights), as well as nutrition, fitness and meditation practices to help them reach their potential as musicians and people. They will be coached by veteran world-class musicians, producers, and songwriters including:
• Mike Posner (prolific Grammy®-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, poet, and podcaster)
• Adam Friedman (Arizona native turned Californian singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist)
