RIP Richard Swift

A member of The Arcs, The Shins and The Black Keys, Richard Swift, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer-songwriter, died this morning in Tacoma, Washington. He was only 41 years old.

Just a month ago Swift had been hospitalized from a “life-threatening condition,” which prompted him to create a GoFundMe account for his medical bills.

RIP to one of the nicest, most talented people I’ve had the honor of spending time with.  <3 @thelaurenoneil
