At this time of year, all we need is a song to warm our hearts. After he’s finished pouring some honey in his cup of lemon tea, Nick Hakim may have one of this kind. We met up with the Brooklyn based singer in a Montreuil café which used to be a piano factory. Calm and focused, he managed to turn this vast industrial hall into an intimate cocoon. « A supernova / Exploded and changed my world ». Nick Hakim sings of the idea of being in your own orbit while everything else floats around you like comets in space. While he caressed the grand piano keys, the life of the restaurant continued : the telephone rang, coffee and cocktail drinkers crossed path, a child had a tantrum… Nick kept whispering « Let it happen, let it happen » like a sort of mantra. An invitation to experience all of the feelings that come with being in love. An inspiring perspective from a generous soul.
