Nahko’s music serves as a beautiful and uplifting exercise in connecting the mind, body and soul; and lyrically exploring meditative, spiritual and political themes such as indigenous youth freedom, sustainability, healthy living and direct action.
He began playing piano at the age of six, writing songs in his teens and had the creative inspiration to bridge cultural gaps and is a man on a mission, saying “As a musical collective, our mission is to be the motivation and inspiration for all that have become members of our Tribe. Within our global community, we have access to the tools needed to make changes, take action and spread awareness of how to live in harmony with Mother Gaia herself. We are honoured to be a force of attraction for positive and creative minds during these often-corrupt times. Tribe members, let us come together today to be the change that we wish to see tomorrow.”
Nahko and Medicine for the People already has a Top Ten hit to his name in both the Billboard Top Alternative Albums and Top Heatseekers charts. As well as garnering a rabid following across the globe, the band’s profile has also exploded online, amassing over 100,000 Facebook fans and millions of video views.
Nahko is now back and has announced the release of his debut solo album, My Name Is Bear, on October 20th, 2017 through Side One Dummy Records.
