Win the Sound of Sunshine
Michael Franti formed Spearhead in the mid 90's. His last album "All Rebel Rockers", became the biggest hit of his career yielding a hit single "Say Hey (I Love You)". Known for playing outside of his shows to audiences who can't afford it, he is one of the far too few positive and conscious artists in popular music today.
"The Sound of Sunshine" is Michael Franti’s most recent album, due to make it's International debut on May 16th.
Although this album is bright and hopeful, it was born out of an experience that shook Franti to his core.
His appendix ruptured while touring last year and he spent weeks in the hospital coming very close to death. He took time to prioritize what was truly important to him and found greater appreciation for the people that he loves and cares for. These were the people who as he puts it, 'helped me find the sun again'. He wrote many of the songs for this album in the final days coming out of this experience.
