Born in Washington, D.C., singer/songwriter 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. His debut project, 2014's Where Will We Go, Pt. 1 (EP) and Where Will We Go, Pt. 2 (EP), released through his own imprint (Earseed Records) went on to earn critical praise from NPR and The New York Times. It was in May 2017 that he released his debut full-length, Green Twins. Green Twins was an experimental step forward with emotional heft gleaned from his experiences in the years since the first EPs.
