#OnTheList with Xtine is a weekly feature from Fresh 102.7’s Christine Richie that will be highlighting all things music and more, from her favorite emerging artists, top female vocalists, and much, much more!
Fresh Fall Fest is just days away and I’m very excited, as usual. It’s completely sold out and I’m counting on the audience to be electric. Leading up to our concerts I usually do a pre-game #OnTheList for you; just a little something to get you ready for the show. But I decided to do something different this time. The fans are the ones who bought all the tickets, so I figured why not let them take over. I wanted to know why they were so passionate about their favorites. Here is another “fan edition” #OnTheList, this one featuring Mike Posner from superfan Christina Jones.
I first discovered Mike Posner’s music back in 2009. I remember loving his smooth vocals, upbeat music, and wanting to hear more of it. A year later, he released his debut album 31 Minutes To Takeoff and went on nationwide tour. When I saw him perform live for the first time in 2010, his performance really surprised me and I was instantly hooked – especially during his emotional song “Save Your Goodbye.” After that unforgettable night, I basically transformed into a fangirl. I created a Mike Posner Twitter fan page, connected with fellow fans, and soon after I developed the official fansite MikePosnerHits.com.
Fast forward to a few years later and Mike’s evolved into an all-around musician — he learned to play the piano and acoustic guitar — and released his sophomore album At Night, Alone. He definitely surprises, showing much more range as a songwriter, not to mention vocally as a singer. That falsetto! Wow!
Every long-time Mike Posner fan knows he’s released a lot of music over the years from his albums, singles, mixtapes, and collaborations with other recording artists. Below, I’ve managed to put together my dream setlist. I recommend that everyone go check him out when he comes to your town because he doesn’t disappoint in his live shows. He can go from playing acoustically to a full band show and be equally amazing. He has electrifying energy on stage during his upbeat songs, which always gets everyone up on their feet dancing. When he slows it down with his ballads, he’ll have you feeling completely chill or emotional.
