Just Announced: Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker to play an all-ages and 21+ show at JB’s this March

If you couldn’t attend the Project Pabst fest this past September — and if, like I, you were distraught at missing Big Thief performing in the general vicinity without your presence to soak in the immense beautifulness of it — don’t you fret. You can still experience the soft, lulling magnificence of front woman Adrianne Lenker’s project this March at Johnny Brenda’s.

Slotted to play sans full-band, Lenker’s already delicate songs might just conjure an atmosphere even more intensely intimate as she performs solo. This also means I better be able to hear ...

Free At Noon Flashback: Nick Hakim, soul machine, introduces himself to World Cafe Live

Sensual funkiness: a combination of words I’d never expect to throw together but that fully encapsulates the sound of Nick Hakim and his four-piece backing band during today’s Free At Noon performance. The New York-based artist released his debut full-length Green Twins in May and wrapped up a US headlining tour in Seattle on Tuesday, and beginning next week he can be found opening for Fleet Foxes during the European leg of their Crack-Up tour.

Nick Hakim’s sound immediately calls for comparisons to James Blake, Moses Sumney, and even the latest iteration of Bon ...

Four great locals play Mercury Lounge on 12.10: Big Thief, Nick Hakim, Sam Evian and Pavo Pavo

Source: Deli Magazine NY

Lower East Side’s Mercury Lounge is an important venue for emerging NYC bands, because it represents a trampoline towards other more prestigious Bowery Presents live show "opportunities." Sell it out, and it may unlock Rough Trade’s stage a couple of months later (ask Lewis Del Mar about it, he ALSO sold out the W’burg venue this past Tuesday, by the way). On the flip side, if your band’s draw is poor or unsatisfying, you may have a hard time getting booked there again. So… those are the rules of the game, and four super talented emerging NYC artists will face ...

Weekly Features: Nick Hakim

Singer-songwriter Nick Hakim‘s sophomore EP "Where Will We Go Pt.2" (released on his own label Earseed Records) is a carefully crafted nod to the soul kings – Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Al Green. The 23-year-old says he formed his sound while studying at Berklee College of Music. "Lift Me Up" is a perfect example, with a melodic core expressed by Hakim’s hauntingly beautiful vocals, sparse keys and honest lyrics.

Buzz Alert! Nick Hakim gets serious love from NPR

Source: Deli Magazine NY

Brooklynite (via DC) Nick Hakim just ended an August residency at Baby’s All Right in support of his debut EP “Where Will We Go, Pt. 1.” The stunning collection hit New Yorkers hard, impressing local music fans with its heartbreaking sultriness and genuine soul. While the tracks are indisputably melancholic, they don’t drag – and this is a balance that is often hard to perfect. The fact that single’I Don’t Know’ (streaming) was included in a NPR playlist called ‘10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing‘ is certainly helping build the hype. Though the release was unveiled last month at ...
