Following their successful debut EP, ‘Alaska’, Stockholm-based dream pop band Novah have teamed up with acclaimed singer/songwriter Amanda Mair for new single ‘Ghost’. Speaking to Essentially Pop, band member Simon Hagstrom talks about the inspiration behind the collaboration, the band’s career highlights and plans for their second EP.
Singer songwriter Nahko is best known as the frontman of the world music collective, Medicine For The People. He started playing piano at the age of 6, and his songwriting moved to a more grassroots style in about 2012, when he travelled around the US with his van and his dog. Nahko’s album, ‘My Name Is Bear’, is in essence a prequel to his work with Medicine For The People, with songs written primarily between the ages of 18 and 21 (with a few more recent than that).
Lisa caught up with Nahko while he was visiting London to promote his new album.
