About Mike Shinoda

A quintessential multi-hyphenate, Mike Shinoda is a Japanese-American musician, visual artist, and entrepreneur.  Shinoda graduated with a B.F.A. in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in 1998, and received an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2009. He established the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at his alma mater, awarded based on merit and financial need.  While in college, Mike started Linkin Park. Shinoda jokes, “I made money doing design so I could spend it doing music.” The band became one of the best selling artists in modern history, with 26 MTV music awards, two GRAMMYS, four Echo awards, a UN Global Leadership Award, and dozens of others. They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Shinoda is the founder, producer, and primary songwriter.

Shinoda is also known for his close relationship with innovative entertainment technology though partnership, investment, and advisory roles with companies such as Spotify, Sonos, Robinhood, and Mercedes Benz. He currently serves as Community Innovation Advisor on Web3 for Warner Music Group and “Pro Team” ambassador for Ledger.

In 2021, Shinoda released a the first-of-its-kind generative mixtape collection. Entitled “Ziggurats,” the collection consisted of 5000 units, each with unique music and cover art generated from layers created by Shinoda. Ownership of a Ziggurat opens up an evolving world of content, events, and art.  Mike’s physical art pieces have been a part of his music releases from Fort Minor’s “Rising Tied” to his solo album “Post Traumatic,” and various gallery exhibitions.

Shinoda’s writing and production credits also include works with Jay-Z (Grammy, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, 2006), Rakim, Depeche Mode, Blackbear, Steve Aoki, Pusha-T, Stormzy, Cypress Hill, Black Thought, Martin Garrix, Lupe Fiasco, Grandson, K.Flay, and Deftones (Grammy, Best Remixed Recording, 2022). His scoring compositions include “Medal Of Honor,” “MTV VMAs,” “The Raid: Redemption,” and “Into The Badlands” (BMI Award, Best Original Score, 2019).
