About Nick Hakim

Washington, D.C. native Nick Hakim arrived in the mid-2010s as a purposefully raw and refined balladeer with an old soul. Before his breakout year, he appeared on Gizmo's Red Balloon, but 2014 was when he released a pair of warmly received EPs. The predominantly acoustic Where Will We Go, Pt. 1 and Where Will We Go, Pt. 2 pitched him somewhere between Jeff Buckley and Anthony Hamilton, albeit in a strictly low-key, singularly intimate fashion. Hakim steadily grew a fan base through his performances, including stints opening for Maxwell and King. Green Twins, his debut album, was released on the ATO label in May 2017. Will This Make Me Good followed almost exactly three years to the date. ~ Andy Kellman
