“This album was birthed by a rude awakening,” says Nahko. “Amidst a series of sudden harsh changes, I found myself embarking on a quest for help with a fierce desire to heal, and writing these songs was my therapy. They’re deeply personal; the most I’ve shared about my personal journey of self love to date, and, true to my nature, there is joyous victory that blankets the most painful topics. Take Your Power Back is a mindset and mantra. It means being accountable, acknowledging traumas, and doing the hard vulnerable work of confronting the shadows. I am reclaiming my voice, my boundaries, and my medicine.”

Nahko will celebrate the release of Take Your Power Back during a virtual release party airing live on Facebook and YouTube tonight at 4 PM PT/7 PM ET. He’ll perform songs from the album, converse with special guests, and answer fan questions about Take Your Power Back, in addition to giveaways and other surprises.

Take Your Power Back offers a message of hope and healing that resonates even more deeply in 2020. Throughout the album, Nahko faces the challenges that come from self-forgiveness, using music as a balm for healing. Early single “Twisted” celebrates the courage it takes to prioritize self-love, and “Part Problem” is an ode to owning our responsibilities for the paths we choose in life.

The album’s lead single “Lifeguard” is currently in the Top 40 on the AAA chart. Album standout “Garden” landed on multiple New Music Friday playlists the week it arrived, as well as Spotify’s Renegade Folk, Stress Free and Apple Music Alt-Hot Tracks playlists, with “Twisted” earning placement on Spotify’s Contemporary Blend and Fin de Journée playlists.

Last month, Nahko performed album cut “Honor The Earth” as part of Earth Day Live alongside Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz and more, plus appearances by Al Gore, Pope Francis, and many other prominent environmental advocates.

Nahko recently spoke to Live For Live Music about the new album, astrology, and life on his Oregon ranch. Read their full interview here: https://bit.ly/3bxqq4T

SideOneDummy Announce Newest Signing Tolliver! 

SideOneDummy Announce Newest Signing Tolliver! 

New EP ThinBlackDuke Out Everywhere 7/31/2020
The first single, “Petty,” is out now!
Tolliver artfully walks that line between humor and heartache from the outset on ThinBlackDuke, which opens with the rousing, disco infused “Petty.” Calling to mind everything from Rick James to Earth, Wind & Fire, the tune is equal parts ecstatic and acerbic, transmuting the  pain and bitterness of rejection into a fiery sense of liberation.
Written and recorded with all-star production team The Architects (Miguel, Alicia Keys), Tolliver’s sparkling new EP ThinBlackDuke is equal parts unbridled hedonism and morning-after regret, a conflicted party record that blurs the lines between soul, funk, R&B, and hip-hop as it grapples with sex and jealousy, money and betrayal, self-doubt and self-control.
STREAM “PETTY” NOW!
