My Name Is Bear is the solo debut from acclaimed artist Nahko of Medicine for the People. 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."
