ABOUT MICHAEL FRANTI AND SPEARHEAD
For over two decades, the Bay Area born Michael Franti has been bringing our world exceptionally powerful, deeply felt music. Franti first formed the punk band The Beatnigs while studying at the University of San Francisco, and later the far more hip hop-inflected The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. In the mid-Nineties, Franti created Spearhead. Franti’s music has always reflected his status as a musical citizen of the world. The Sound of Sunshine is Michael Franti & Spearhead’s seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2008’s Top 40 hit All Rebel Rockers. Throughout his career, Franti has earned and maintained a reputation as one of the best live acts in the business. Playing music off of the new album, Franti & Spearhead are sure to deliver an electrically charged, and ultimately unforgettable, musical experience for fans.
Find out why Michael Franti goes barefoot at his concerts. It’s all for a good cause!
ABOUT OPENING ACT, BOBBY LONG
Nu-folkish Bobby Long’s steel string thrumming, much in the vein of London contemporaries Mumford & Sons, Noah and the Whale and Laura Marling, has lent him a million plus MySpace listens prior to any official release. When you listen to Bobby Long, you are reminded of what music is meant to be . . . naked emotion that only knows how to be honest with itself and the listeners. It doesn’t take long to realize you are listening to the next generation of music.In 2009 he played over 100 gigs across Europe and North America and sold over 10,000 copies of his bootleg EP “Dirty Pond Songs” at his shows. The Twilight Soundtrack, which included his co-written “Let Me Sign”, won an American Music Award for Best Soundtrack. Late 2010 or early 2011 will herald the release of a much anticipated first studio album, recorded at legendary ToeRag Studios and produced by Liam Watson (White Stripes, Elephant).
