Nahko And Medicine For The People, Xiuhtezcatl
Over the last 5 years, Nahko And Medicine For The People have continued to gather dedicated members of their global tribe of likeminded fans as they spread their powerful musical message. They incorporate a variety of sounds, ranging from alternative roots to acoustic rock while promoting social change. Their album HOKA debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Rock Album Chart and #6 on the Alternative Album Chart.
Nahko’s solo album, My Name is Bear, debuted on a number of Billboard charts including Independent Albums (#11), Tastemakers (#14), Emerging Artists (#19), Top Album Sales (#43), and Top 200 Albums (#170). The album also premiered at #1 on iTunes and the headline tour in support of it boasted multiple sold-out dates both stateside and in Europe. My Name is Bear is a 16-track collection that reflects the soul, authenticity, and spirit that Nahko’s fans have come to know. It predates Nahko’s rise to mythos among diehard fans of Medicine For The People. As he puts it, the album serves as a “prequel,” that artfully merges rustic acoustic guitars, upbeat energy, tribal flavors, fiery percussion, and ponderous lyrics. At the end of the day, My Name is Bear, sets the stage for a whole lot more from Nahko.
