Singer/songwriter Nahko is to release the official music video for ‘Dragonfly’, next week. The song is the first single from his forthcoming debut solo album, My Name is Bear, and features his close friend Paris Jackson.
In anticipation of that, an intimate Behind-The-Scenes look at the making of the video, the friendship between Nahko and Paris and their spiritual bond has been made available for fans to get an early taste of the video and learn more about the inspirations behind it.
Nahko says about the concept for the forthcoming video “I specifically wanted to capture this young woman’s natural beauty and focus on what I thought would be a very perfect song to explain a transformational time that fit both her and I.”
Paris adds, “We’re going through very similar things right now, each in our own way, but they both kind of fit the same template and there’s just a flow. It’s really rare to find that mutual frequency with another human being. When it does happen it’s pretty spectacular.”
Nahko’s debut solo album, My Name Is Bear, is set for release Friday, October 20th. It is a 16-track collection that reflects the authenticity and spirit that Nahko’s fans have come to know. My Name Is Bear 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.
My Name is Bear, sets the stage for a whole lot more from Nahko. He embarks on a full U.S. and European headline tour on October 18th in Boston.
