Who is Nick Sylvester?
Nick was born in the USA, but has chosen to keep the exact date and place of his birth hidden from the media’s attention – it’s believed that he was born in the first half of the ‘80s, that his zodiac sign is Capricorn, while he holds American nationality. He’s a journalist, music producer and musician, but is probably known best for being the husband of American journalist Mina Kimes.
Early life and education
Nick was raised in the US by his mother and father, about whom only a little is known because he respects their privacy; it’s believed that his mother was a housewife, and that his father was a construction worker. Nick hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
He was mostly focused on his education while growing up, as he was urged by his parents to study well so that he could eventually pursue a college degree.
Nick became interested in music when he was around 11 years old, after having attended a concert with his parents, and became interested in journalism while attending a local high school; he was physically more or less active during his teenage years, as he enjoyed playing a couple of sports with his friends, including soccer and basketball.
Nick matriculated sometime around the year 2000 and then enrolled at Harvard University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism.
Nick’s today working as a writer for the American online music publication “Pitchfork”, while he’d previously written articles for the news publication “The Village Voice”.
During the 2000s, Nick wrote reviews on various bands and musicians for “Pitchfork”, such as the The Roots, Lil Wayne and Death from Above 1979. He attracted a lot of attention in 2006, when he wrote the article “Do You Want to Kiss Me?”, about the nightlife in New York City, and the people known as pick-up artists. Many people were dissatisfied with his representation of party people in his article, and even asked him to quit being a journalist.
He has been focused on music since the mid-2000s, and has been working as a drummer and music producer; Nick was a member of the trio Mr. Dream for a short period of time – they released one album: “Trash Hit”.
He went on to launch his own record label GODMODE in Brooklyn, New York City, and one of the first musicians signed to it was Shamir; he was 18 years old back then, and Nick helped him release his debut extended play (EP) “Northtown”.
Shamir’s debut album “Ratchet” was released in 2015, and was named one of the best albums of the year by “Pitchfork”.
Love life and marriage with Mina Kimes
Nick prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself, but it’s still widely known that he’s today a married man. Neither he nor Mina have spoken of how and when they met, but it’s believed that it was at party organized for journalists in the first half of the 2010s. The two were spotted spending time together in public on a number of occasions, and they exchanged vows in 2015, in a private ceremony attended by many of their friends and family members.
Nick and Mina don’t have children together, and this is believed to be because they both want to focus on their careers, however, they do have a pet dog, Lenny.
Neither has spoken of any other people whom they have perhaps been with, and as of May 2022, Nick’s married to Mina Kimes, and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Although Nick has uploaded only a single picture onto his Instagram account, he’s still quite active on the network, as many of his fans have claimed to have messaged him and received a response not long after; he’s today followed by close to 3,000 people.
