The Org’s new single, ‘Peace’, sees them work in verses from the Bible, along with prayers on the state of their immortal souls – not to forget a shout out to the Book of Philippians – while at the same time go hard with their tough and uncompromising flows, and their metaphors which have been taken directly from the hardcore rap textbook.
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.
