  • Musician Richard Swift has died at age 41

On June 19, representatives announced that Swift had been hospitalized due to a "life-threatening condition". He's now with his "Mom and Sister", the frontman remarked.

Swift was most known for being a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, a producer, and played with other bands like The Pretenders, The Barr Brothers, as well as Ray LaMontagne.

Musician Richard Swift, a Black Keys collaborator and former member of The Shins, passed away at the age of 41 Tuesday morning.

The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach led tributes with an Instagram post saying: "I will miss you my friend".

At the time of Swift's death, more than $87,000 had been donated.

However, it was 2007's Dressed Up for the Letdown that really turned the right heads, particularly Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, who invited Swift to not only tour with the band but record at their own Chicago studio, The Loft.

Swift also put out seven solo releases between 2005 and 2010, and Pitchfork applauded his forceful willpower and an unflagging self-confidence on his first two releases The Novelist and Walking Without Effort. His family established a GoFundMe page to support his medical expenses, with hopes of raising $100,000. As a producer, Swift has worked with artists like Nathaniel Rateliff And The Night Sweats, Foxygen, Damien Jurado, and the Mynabirds. If you can afford to share the weight of this burden, it would be most deeply appreciated.
