Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda wants to give back to the music community, and he's launched a new plan to do just that. After all, it's been a rough 12 months, and he's looking to use his music production skills for good.
The #ShinodaProduceMe initiative will see him produce fans' music live on Twitch, and he's asked fans to submit their tracks for potential selection. Trust us, you'll want to get involved in this.
Speaking about the idea on Instagram he says, 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."
There's a couple of rules you have to pay attention to if you want to enter, but that shouldn't be too hard. He says, "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."
