Mike Shinoda offers to produce fans’ music live on Twitch

Mike Shinoda has announced a new Twitch-based project in which he’ll produce fans’ music live on his channel.

After an incredibly successful year in the streaming world in 2020, Mike Shinoda has announced a new way to connect with fans through his massive Twitch channel: by producing their music live on the platform.

The Linkin Park man is calling for submissions to his new #ShinodaProduceMe initiative, which will see him produce music written by fans whose music he enjoys with the helpful judgement of his Twitch community.

For 2021, I wanted to find a way to give back to my amazing community online,” Mike says. 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.”

He adds: 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.”

How awesome is that?! Watch Mike explain the project in more detail below, and get involved over at Twitch.tv/OfficialMikeShinoda.
