Nahko and Medicine for The People’s new album HOKA out June 10, watch new video for “San Quentin”

Last week, we introduced you to Nahko and Medicine for the People. Today we’re excited for you to hear “San Quentin,” the first single from their upcoming album, ‪#‎HOKA‬! The album comes out JUNE 10 and is available to pre-order now in our store.

“San Quentin” is a tale of Nahko’s personal journey to forgiveness as he makes a trip to San Quentin State Prison to meet the man who murdered his father. This story is expertly and emotionally told through the video (directed by Max Moore Films) that you can watch right here:

Nahko and Medicine for The People support Bread & Roses and Jail Guitar Doors for their work in bringing music to the incarcerated. For more information, please visit and
