Ke$ha
Global superstar Ke$ha has taken the world by storm since the release of her debut album Animal in 2010. That year she was declared Billboard's Hot 100 Artist and her smash debut single "TiK ToK" was named Billboard's #1 Hot 100 Song, was the most played song of that year, and was the biggest-selling digital track in the world. Her debut album Animal has sold over 2.5 million units worldwide and Ke$ha has had 7 consecutive Top 10 hits including four #1 singles in "TiK ToK", "Your Love Is My Drug," "We R Who We R" and the latest, "Die Young." Ke$ha recently released the track "C'Mon," the second single from her critically acclaimed second album, Warrior. Ke$ha has toured the world, playing over 200 live shows in support of Animal and its companion album Cannibal. She took home the MTV EMA for Best New Act in November 2010 and was nominated for 2 American Music Awards, 3 MTV VMA Awards and 6 Billboard Awards. She has performed on dozens of television programs all over the world including MTV Europe Music Awards, Much Music Awards (Canada), Echo Awards (Germany), X Factor (Australia), American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, American Idol, Saturday Night Live and The Today Show Summer Concert Series. She has over 22 million Facebook likes, over 3 million Twitter followers and over 330 million views on VEVO. She has sold over 27 million combined tracks and ringtones in the U.S alone and over 34.5 million worldwide to date. Ke$ha is an international powerhouse, Animal has been certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum in 15 markets (including Platinum in the United States) and was the biggest selling debut album from an international female in 2010 in the UK. In November 2012 Ke$ha released her first book through Touchstone Publishing. The full-color photo journal/scrapbook entitled My Crazy Beautiful Life, sheds light on Ke$ha's hectic, non-stop life on tour and provides an exclusive look into the creative process of her latest album, Warrior. Also in late 2012 Ke$ha announced Kesha Rose by Charles Albert(r), a new jewelry line that reflects the singer's distinctive personality throughout the collection. Ke$ha was also recently named the first global ambassador for Humane Society International.

When Mike Posner was in tenth grade, an advanced placement course in American History changed his life. "We read about all these different people who had made an impact on U.S. history and I started to feel terrified that I'd never be remembered after I left this earth," Posner says. "That's the scariest thing in the world to me. Music is a way I can make my mark. That's what I think about every day: creating something timeless in a finite amount of time."

The 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer has taken a major step toward achieving his goal with the release of his debut album, 31 Minutes To Takeoff — an eclectic, lovingly crafted collection of soulful tunes that showcase his innovative spirit and motivation to create something that sounds like nothing else out there. Posner co-wrote and/or co-produced every song on the album, conjuring up killer hooks and irresistible beats with a host of top-notch collaborators, including Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Katy Perry), Greg Kurstin (Kylie Minogue, Lily Allen), The Smeezingtons (Bruno Mars, B.o.B., Travie McCoy), and members of legendary R&B vocal group Boyz II Men (who provide soulful harmonies on "Déja Vu").

The album's relentless genre bending sound could only come from someone who's been steeped in music and driven to make it his entire life, as Posner has been. He was born and raised in the ethnically and economically diverse Detroit suburb of Southfield, MI, where he grew up listening to his parents' Motown records, and later, hip-hop, rock, and jazz artists. "If you looked through my CD collection, I had everything from Outkast and Nas, to Rage Against The Machine and Pearl Jam, to Miles Davis and Paul Simon," Posner says. He began playing drums in fourth grade and was making beats on his parents' computer by the time he was 13, an obsession he carried with him through high school, when he began writing melodies and lyrics. After graduating, Posner enrolled at Duke University in Durham, NC, to study sociology and business. During consecutive summer breaks, he interned at Detroit hip-hop station WHTD and hip-hop indie label Definitive Jux in New York City, where he attempted to peddle his tracks to the major record labels.

"I never sold one," Posner says. "So I was like, 'Forget it, I'm going to sing the words myself because no one else can pull off singing these lyrics the way I can.'" Among those tracks was "Cooler Than Me" — a breezy ode to a former crush that Posner recorded in his dorm room using a $200 mic. Two years later, "Cooler Than Me" is a smash success having sold over 1 million copies. It is currently soaring in the Top 5 at Top 40 radio, Top 10 at Rhythm radio and thus far has hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs Chart.

All of us have been playing music since we were mere youths. We have played many-a-style and with many-a-band, but when the four of us started playing garage glam rockNroll together is when shit got for real. People call us a glam band because of our Hollywood good looks and Justin's kunt style, but really we just play good ol' rockNroll. Howeves, we are starting a movement of filthy, sexy, smart, dirty, hard working hustlers who play party rockNroll called STREET GLAM. The other artists in our STREET GLAM movement are Tokyo Diiva, Von Iva, and The Ringers.
