Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2004 – present)

Fort Minor is the side-project of Mike Shinoda, the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter of the band Linkin Park. Though it was technically Shinoda’s solo project, the members of Styles of Beyond featured heavily on Fort Minor’s album The Rising Tied and appeared with Shinoda at photo shoots and live concerts.

They are known for the 2006 single, “Where’d You Go”, which features Holly Brook and Jonah Matranga, and also his single, “Remember the Name”. Thus far, Fort Minor has released one album, 2005’s The Rising Tied (as well as one mixtape, FMInvasion - We Major, which featured DJ Green Lantern), and also has a fan club similar to Linkin Park Underground, titled Fort Minor Militia.

Mike Shinoda’s plan was to make music while enjoying time with his friends, who include Ryu, Tak, and many other leading musical artists.

Fort Minor’s first major album The Rising Tied, features 16 tracks (with three bonus tracks on the Limited Edition), many of which are specific to the lives of Shinoda and his collaborators. “Remember the Name”, for example, describes the group’s views on being rappers, while “Kenji” describes the experiences of Shinoda’s family during the Japanese American internment of World War II. Other tracks, such as “Slip Out The Back” which features Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, have more general lyrical themes.
