A new medical fund has been set up in support of Richard Swift after the producer and multi-instrumentalist was recently hospitalized in Washington state due to what Swift’s GoFundMe page calls a “serious medical condition.”

“Richard needs your love and support now as he is up against some tough odds,” the page reads. “He is receiving excellent care in Tacoma Washington and everything is being done to allow his body time to repair and heal. He is uninsured and the cost of the care he is getting is a lot. If you can afford to share the weight of this burden, it would be most deeply appreciated. Anything helps.
Mostly thank you for supporting our beloved Richard and his family.”

Swift is decidedly one of the producers of the moment, having just in the past several years worked with and/or produced full albums for The Shins, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach (Swift was also part of Auerbach’s side-project The Arcs), Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, John Prine, Guster, Foxygen, Marco Benevento, Kevin Morby and more.
