If you haven’t heard Nick Hakim‘s wonderful full-length debut project, Green Twins, well, now is your chance. For those in the New York City area, the NPR Music‘s First Listen selection will play all the hits from his album at the legendary Bowery Ballroom on May 17.
“Nick Hakim writes songs that honor his own complexity and the complexity of love (they are, in part, inextricable), delivered through brilliant, pillowy, jazz-inflected arrangements,” NPR Music notes in this press release. “But, perhaps above all, it is the voice — a striking vessel of emotion and an impressive technical force.”
After taking an interest in learning how to play an instrument, Nick taught himself how to play the keys and study the art of making music. Since relocating from Washington, D.C. to Brooklyn, Nick worked on Green Twins for three years, embracing the live circuit, and now, we are excited to see this skillful talent get busy at the Bowery Ballroom.
