Linkin Park’s rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Mike Shinoda shared a post on Twitter announcing that he now has started to stream on Twitch in order to give a free workshop to his fans who have an interest in being a producer and a musician.
As you may already know, in addition to his successful music career with Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda also has been working as a producer who worked for tracks and albums by hip-hop artists Lupe Fiasco, Styles of Beyond, and the X-Ecutioners.
Shinoda recently started an initiative named ‘Shinoda Produce Me’ which involved his fans to submit their tracks for a possible selection and he announced the news through a video on his official Instagram page. He stated that he wanted to give back to his online community by helping his fans through online streaming in order to make a platform for every potential musician to achieve their ultimate success.
Here is what Shinoda said in the announcement about his new project:
“For 2021, I wanted to find a way to give back to my amazing community online. I’m looking for vocalists, rappers, and songwriters who need help getting to the next level. If I find someone great, I’ll produce their track, live on my Twitch channel.
There’s no formal contest, just an intention. The fans on Twitch will help me find the right vocalists. my only ‘rules’ are 1.) I’m not doing vocals, 2.) I’d like the artist to only contribute vocals and one instrument, nothing filled-out, just the ‘song,’ and 3.) no back-seat producing, the track has to be in my hands until I feel like I’m done.”
Recently, Mike Shinoda shared a new post on his official Twitter page revealing that the day has come to live stream on Twitch in order to help his fans to achieve their dream. While Shinoda started to produce a couple of songs during streaming, he also demonstrated the procedure of how a song should be produced along the way.
Here is what Mika Shinoda stated in his latest tweet:
“Come talk about ‘Shinoda Produce Me. Let’s figure out how to find great vocalists and songwriters for me to produce.”
