Work with Linkin Park
Even if you’re not an avid fan of nu metal, let alone rock music, the name Linkin Park will always ring a bell as one of the bands that sang so many iconic hits. You don’t have to be rock geek to have at least one of their songs on your playlist. That’s the kind of success that Linkin Park was able to accomplish. While most rock groups have become typecasts to a certain niche audience, Linkin Park’s commercial success transcended boundaries of audience and music subcultures. Many of Linkin Park’s songs have been used as soundtracks: "What I’ve Done" was the main theme song for the "Transformers" movie. "Castle of Glass" was featured on the videogame "Medal of Honor", while "In The End" has become a karaoke classic. The band was founded in 1996 and first gained international recognition in 2000 with debut single "One Step Closer", also featured on their debut album, "Hybrid Theory". Part of Linkin Park’s success was due to their signature style of combining rap and metal. While the rap-rock fusion was a staple for a plethora of bands on the nu metal scene back then, Linkin Park’s execution of the style was a lot more refined. Thanks to the band’s chemistry and the vocal leadings of frontmen Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park produced a signature sound that’s easily consumable and enjoyed by all kinds of ears.
A stunning solo career
Mike Shinoda’s voice is easily one the most recognisable voices in modern rock. He is also respected in the hip-hop community as a rapper for his work with Linkin Park and his hip-hop side projects, Fort Minor and X-Ecutioners. Fort Minor released an album in 2005 called "The Rising Tide", which featured many non-rock related artists like John Legend, Lupe Fiasco and Jay-Z. The album was met with a positive response and landed a spot on the Billboard charts. In 2018 Mike Shinoda released his solo work following the passing of his bandmate, Chester Bennington.
