Yesterday I got a chance to interview Shure Endorser Mike Posner in one of the prayer rooms in the Foundation Room of the House of Blues in Chicago.

Matt & Kim were coming to Chicago again, and this time I had no prior plans or obligations to stand in the way of finally meeting the dynamic duo from Brooklyn and partaking in the madness that is their live show. When I arrived to the Metro via the Shure mobile (of course), the line […]
