At the heart of Indigenous is guitarist/singer/songwriter Mato Nanji. Raised as a member of the Nakota Sioux Nation on the Yankton Indian Reservation in South Dakota, Mato first came to musical prominence when he formed Indigenous with his brother, sister and cousin. In 1998, they released their debut, 'Things We Do,' which received wide, mass reception and included the Top 10 smash hit 'Now That You're Gone.' After three successful albums, the siblings went their separate ways, and Mato forged ahead as the face of Indigenous releasing his Vanguard debut, 'Chasing The Sun.' The album's fiery blues prowess solidified Mato as one of blues-rock's most exciting talents. His most recent effort is 'Broken Lands.'
