Publisher & Founder
Prior to starting Digital Music News, Paul Resnikoff headed the digital music initiative at internet portal Lycos (up until its sale to Telefónica). He started out at Epic Records (Sony Music Entertainment) in New York, specifically within international and eventually worldwide marketing.
Resnikoff’s interest in digital music comes from his passion for playing and listening to music. He grew up playing French Horn under the tutelage of Howard University professor Bill Penn. Paul’s father, a consumer protection and anti-trust attorney, is a huge aficionado of the lower brass and actively plays tuba, baritone, trombone, and stand-up bass as a thriving septuagenarian.
In terms of listening, Resnikoff prefers Progressive House, Classical, Chill Dubstep, 90s Death Metal, New York Rap, Dancehall Reggae and a sprinkling of Reggaeton and Champeta. Rachmaninoff, araabMUZIK, Obituary, and Young Thug are just a few getting put into heavy rotation these days, alongside staples like Mozart and Nas.
Outside of Digital Music News, Resnikoff has a boutique music industry consultancy (please ask for details) and is expanding the DMN concept into TV (look out for ‘Channel Daily’…) Beyond that, Paul also enjoys traveling (most recently Colombia, South Korea, Argentina, Norway, and Austria), real estate, and is an avid tennis player and urban cyclist. He’s failed miserably at living a car-free lifestyle (in Los Angeles), and remains a long-suffering Washington Redskins fan (on a number of levels).
Paul Resnikoff earned his degree in Economics and Music from Stanford University.
