On today's episode, I talk to musician Joe Rainey. Originally
from South Minneapolis, Joe is A member of the Red Lake Nation of
Ojibwe people and began attending and singing at pow wows from an
early age, as well as becoming a pow wow singing archivist.
Eventually ending up in Wisconsin, Joe began guesting with
different musicians, working with people like Alan Sparhawk of Low,
Bon Iver, Chance the Rapper, among many others. This eventually led
to his debut album Niineta, which he composed with producer and
artist Andrew Broder and which was released at the end of May on
Justin Vernon's label 37d03d!
