Singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Nick Hakim grew up in a household overflowing with musical diversity and cites influences ranging from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to South American folk and DC punk. It comes as no surprise that Nick tends to blend genres, mixing an ambient airy psychedelic sound with the raw emotion of the blues.

The Brooklyn-based, Washington, D.C.-raised musician was recently profiled via The FADER’s Gen F series as he prepares his debut full-length album Green Twins, set for release in the Spring of 2017 on ATO Records. Notes The FADER, Hakim is “…a singer who composes achingly beautiful soul music that almost always reaches you somewhere deep in your bones.” Read the feature HERE.

His debut full-length album follows Hakim’s critically praised Where Will We Go Pt. 1 Pt. 2 EPs, released on his own Earseed Records imprint in 2014. The collection of intimate, lo-fi soul songs was called “lovingly dreamy and hopelessly bleary at once” by NPR Music. The long out-of-print 12” will be reissued on milky white vinyl with all new interior art by ATO Records, and is now available for pre-order for delivery by March 2017. Where Will We Go Pt. 1 is streaming HERE and Where Will We Go Pt. 2 HERE.

Previous Praise:

“his delicate guitar work and hazy harmonies make him a singular and vital presence in the genre. His 2014 EPs have been exercises in restraint, drenched in liquor and physicality.” – New York Times

“Nick Hakim makes soulful music that feels lovingly dreamy and hopelessly bleary at once… his layered vocals swim across each other and send shivers down your spine.” – NPR Music

“moody, gorgeous voice suits a sweaty summer night.” – New York Magazine

“Exceptional debut… emotionally rich and runs the gamut of R&B, jazz, folk and Motown, taking cues from greats like Marvin Gaye and Harry Nilsson” – Interview Magazine

“Nick Hakim’s music is an intimate conversation, vulnerable and bewitching–R&B born of the blues’ sensibility for soul-bearing.” – Pigeons & Planes

“Nick Hakim specializes in the kind of neo-soul that makes your face melt – in a good way.” – Consequence of Sound

“incredibly strong set of finely crafted tracks that move, haunt and mesmerize…” – KCRW
