Nick Hakim grew up in Washington DC, went to the Berklee College of Music, and has been based in New York for the last several years. He’s cited diverse influences, from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to the South American folk and DC punk records his family played as influences.

After building a dedicated following on Soundcloud, he released his two-part Where Will We Go EP in 2014 to praise from outlets like The FADER, Pigeons & Planes, Interview, Stereogum, Line of Best Fit, Consequence of Sound and more.

He’s toured with Maxwell, How To Dress Well, KING and more; and appeared on the DC emcee and producer Oddisee’s 2015 album The Good Fight.

Nick Hakim recorded his debut full-length album “Green Twins” over the course of a year, experimenting with analog equipment in his bedroom and in Brooklyn studios. On many of the tracks, you can hear this process in the lo-fi buzz of bedroom demos layered just under the surface of fuller, more realized soundscapes. But across the album, which ranges from chaotic psychedelia to airy musings, Hakim’s singular soulful voice cuts through.



Jake Sherman Returns is Jake Sherman's new upcoming album. It is his second studio release since his eponymous debut in 2012.

Jake Sherman’s warm sound embraces all his musical sensibilities, leading his audience through a world of wonderment. Returns delivers cinematic soundscapes that blend dreamy nostalgia with classic, timeless groove.

The New York City based singer-songwriter, known also for his virtuosity as an organist and pianist, has collaborated with a wide array of renowned artists including Chance The Rapper, Bilal, Gabriel Garzòn-Montano, Nick Hakim, Empress Of, Benny Sings, Warren Wolf and Ralph Peterson to name a few.

Returning with his signature Wurlitzer and joined by guitars, synthesizers, organs and orchestral string arrangements, Jake’s sound continues to grow into a world that is purely his own.

Jake Sherman Returns is set to be released on October 14th, 2016 with tour dates throughout the US and Europe TBA, performing alongside the pop-dance greats KNOWER.
