Just over a year ago, songs from an entity known as Young & Sick began to appear in obscure corners of the internet, from a blogspot based in New Zealand to a TOR (the semi-legal underweb that drew national attention shortly after). Little was known about the artist then, but that’s changed in the past months since announcing his debut album on Harvest Records. It’s come to light that the project is the brainchild of Nick van Hofwegen, a Dutch-born illustrator responsible for album covers  for Maroon 5, Foster The People, Robin Thicke, as well as numerous brand campaigns. The music Young & Sick creates is an exceptional blend of R&B, electronic, and pop elements, bound by his own instrumentation and harmonies. The album is written, produced, and created by Young & Sick exclusively, as is the cover design. Fans will have a chance to see it performed live this summer.
