Nick Hakim: KCRW Live from HQ

Intimate performances, fresh sounds, and candid conversations with a view.

Lo-fi R&B crooner Nick Hakim comes through the Annenberg Performance Studio at KCRW HQ to deliver a honey-hued session of lifted compositions from his acclaimed 2022 album, COMETA. Joined by a six-piece band that includes singer June McDoom, Hakim expands on his intimate recordings with complex harmonies and expansive jams on favorites like “Happen,” “Vertigo,” “Feeling Myself,” and more.
