Nick Hakim
Nick Hakim
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.
Solo Woods
Solo Woods
Taking on the moniker, Solo Woods, proved to be a pivotal moment in singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Daniel Woods' recent history. Forced to define how this new name would impact his trajectory, he chose to aim high.

Growing up in an artistic family, Daniel was always encouraged to express and develop his creativity. The outlet for that creativity throughout his entire upbringing was the Church, where his mother was highly involved in the music and creative arts programs.

Wanting to broaden his musical horizons, Daniel chose to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston where his peers, including artists and collaborators Nick Hakim, Jaime Woods, and Jake Sherman, helped to expand Daniel’s perspective, along with influences like Jeff Buckley, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Prince, Joni Mitchell, and D’Angelo.

While Solo has been songwriting since his Berklee days, his stories have recently captured audiences across the country as he opened up for Leon Bridges in the summer of 2016 on a national tour, along with fellow Berklee alum Themba Mkhatshwa playing percussion alongside him. Solo’s 2016 was capped off when he was featured on Ebro and Pharrell’s Beats 1 shows, and when Solo’s song “Long Ways” was featured in the finale episode of OWN’s original series Queen Sugar.

Today, Solo is steadfastly working on the finishing touches of his debut EP, and is looking forward to releasing more music and connecting with new listeners near and far.
