Nick Hakim released his debut album Green Twins (ATO Records) earlier this year to wide critical praise and recently, album track “Needy Bees” was featured in a steamy closing scene of HBO’s Insecure. Hakim kicks off his North American headline tour today at New York City’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. He’s also announced new winter tour dates supporting Fleet Foxes in Europe. See all tour dates below and get a peek at his live show via his recent ‘Pitchfork Live’ session:

Hakim’’s debut comes at the culmination of years chiseling his skills as a musician and saw him featured by the likes of The FADER, Stereogum, Remezcla, NYLON, Latino USA, Paste Magazine, Under The Radar and more. In addition to making the mid-year lists from Complex and Pitchfork, Green Twins has also been named one of the “Best Albums of the Year (So Far)” by Under the Radar, NPR Music’s readers named Hakim one of “Your Favorite New Artists Of 2017 (So Far)” and NME named the track “Green Twins” one of their “Best Songs Of 2017 So Far.”

Hailing from Washington, D.C., he 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.
