    • Nahko and Medicine for the People frontman, Nahko, is branching out from his eponymous world music collective with his first solo album, My Name Is Bear. The record is due out Oct. 20, 2017. Nahko is touring behind the album and singer-songwriter Christina Holmes and Spanish soul indie rock group 1,000 Fuegos will be supporting the Medicine Tribe leader on his fall musical and spiritual journey.  “I came from a broken indigenous home, but I was raised in a beautiful, privileged white home by my adoptive parents,” he says. “It was pretty confusing as I began to come of age because I knew I didn’t come from that household, but somehow through my music I was able to garner the attention of many young people going through the same thing and coming to a similar conclusion. My music did not define me at 18-21 the way it does now. It was my comfort zone. I turned to it to get me through all of the transitions. I had no definition of life at the time. Music is my language, that is certain. It is my way to get in, out, over, and under. It’s my bridge. I can connect with people and many other things with it.”
