In news that will delight his loyal fans and followers, acclaimed artist Nahko of Medicine for the People has announced the release of his debut solo album, My Name Is Bear, on October 20th, 2017 through Side One Dummy Records.
Spanning his formative years as an emerging artist travelling through the wild landscapes of Alaska, Hawaii and Louisiana, My Name Is Bear is a collection of deeply personal songs that tell the tales of Nahko’s awakening as an artist and his most revealing work yet.
“’My Name Is Bear’ is actually the prequel to Medicine For The People. It’s where this all began, before this chapter even started. I felt like I needed to retrace my steps before I could move forward,” Nahko explains.
“I've been waiting for years on these songs, for the time to be right to release them. It’s now.”
The 30 date headline tour heads across 6 countries including the USA, Germany, Belgium, France, Holland, and the UK, with a show at London Islington’s, Assembly Hall on Friday December 1st.
General tickets in Europe will go on sale August 16th, 2017.
