Paul_Resnikoff_fotoPaul Resnikoff is the founder and publisher of Digital Music News (, a premier industry source for news, information, and analysis.  Digital Music News has quickly grown from its humble roots as a small, executive news service to the most widely read information source in the field.

Prior to starting Digital Music News, Paul Resnikoff headed the digital music initiative at internet portal Lycos (until its painful implosion).  He started out at the not-quite-imploded 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.

In terms of listening, Resnikoff prefers Progressive House, Classical, 90s Death Metal, New York Rap, Dancehall Reggae and a sprinkling of Reggaeton and Champeta.  Rachmaninoff, araabMUZIK, Obituary, 80s Motley Crüe and Schoolboy Q 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 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.
