In 2008, singer-songwriter Nahko Bear founded Medicine for the People, an indie-folk collective with a powerful environmental message and a dedicated following. Bear, who Huffington Post called a "musical prophet," released his debut solo album, My Name is Bear (SideOneDummy Records, 2017) in October, and has written that My Name is Bear is filled with personal stories chronicling his years as "a young cub set on exploring the world and finding himself amongst the wild." As a teen, Bear went on a quest for identity that took him to Alaska, Louisiana and Hawaii, inspiring an album fueled by hitchhiking, drug trips and young love. A "prequel" to the iconic sound of Medicine for the People, My Name is Bear distills wanderlust down to its purest form.
