I thought the best way to say who Trent Reznor is, was to go straight to wikipedia and see what they say, so heres the definition for him. “Michael Trent Reznor (born May 17, 1965), known professionally as Trent Reznor, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and film score composer. ” He literally does everything so you just have to accept that he is a god. When he started making Nine Inch Nails music he couldn’t find a band that articulated his sound the right way so he followed Prince/Kevin Parker and played everything by himself in the studio. and had a preference band that traveled with him.
Trent Reznor is also an og of the music streaming business. He started as the chief creative officer of Dr.Dre Beats Music and later linked up with the Apple Music streaming service. He cared a lot about people hearing his music, and being direct to fan. He had a lot of controversy with his label for pricing his music to high. In in article by SPIN he said “As the climate grows more and more desperate for record labels, their answer to their mostly self-inflicted wounds seems to be to screw the consumer over even more,” he was signed by Universal and then proceeded to go off and sympathize for the people stealing/streaming music.
Trent Reznor has composed music for some of my all time favorite movies like The Girl With The Dragon Tatooe, or Natural Born Killers. Johnny Cash covered one of his songs called Hurt and if tears don’t start violently stream down your face, I would question a lot about yourself.
Check it out and have a horrible rest of your day.
