Nick Hakim’s NPR “Tiny Desk Concert” session was published today as he launches a UK tour with a sold out show tonight in London. Hakim performed songs from his debut album Green Twins (ATO Records) which was released last year to wide critical praise including “Best of 2017” spotlights from The Guardian and Billboard. Last fall, album tracks were featured with TV syncs in HBO’s Insecure and Ava Duvernay’s Queen Sugar.
Next month, Hakim will set out on a solo tour with Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker, beginning March 6 at the Murmurr Theatre in Brooklyn. Additionally, he has announced a set of headline dates at the end of April.
Hailing from Washington, D.C., Hakim grew up in a musical household—his older brother introduced him to bands like Bad Brains and Nirvana, and his parents exposed him to Nueva canción—while he set out on his own to discover the DC music scene. He didn’t take an interest in learning an instrument until high school, when he taught himself to play the keys. After graduation, he moved to Boston to continue his study of music. In the time since moving to Brooklyn and setting to work for three years on Green Twins, he embraced the live circuit, both as a solo musician and with his band, whom he’s brought together from within his community in Boston and New York.
