Michael Franti Background
Franti split most of his childhood between the Bay Area and Edmonton, Alberta. By the time he had enrolled in the University
of San Francisco, Michael Franti had found a passion for poetry. After penning several emotional and heart-felt poems, Franti
decided to attempt transforming the poems into song lyrics, so he went out to a pawnshop and bought a bass. After experimenting
with different sounds, Franti settled on his own unique and distinct sound: a blend of hip hop, funk, reggae, punk, and folk.
In 1986, Franti took his first leap into the music world as a part of the Beatnigs, a spoken word group in the Bay Area. For
several years, the Beatnigs performed countless local shows and even released a couple of albums, which achieved glowing praise
yet failed to sell well. After the Beatnigs' era ended, Franti helped form another musical group called Disposable Heroes.
The band's lyrics were extremely politically charged, and because of their phenomenally unique sound, U2 invited to open for
them during their Zoo TV Tour.
After years of climbing the ladder of the music industry, Michael Franti decided to form
his own group, which he called Michael Franti and Spearhead. This reggae rock outfit quickly rose to the forefront of the
genre, performing massive shows all around the world. Some of the band's most infectious hits have been featured in films
like Last Holiday, Good Burger, and Mystery Men. No matter how you know Michael Franti's music, there is no doubt that this
is one artist you should see in concert at least once. Franti is an extraordinarily talented musician who has a knack for
bringing important messages into his beautiful and infectious music, which is why his concerts are always packed with enthusiastic
crowds. When Michael Franti stops at a concert schedule near you in the upcoming months, make sure that you are in the audience
to witness the excitement and grab your tickets right here on StubHub!

Spearhead has released eight studio albums, including the extraordinarily popular Yell Fire! (2006), All Rebel Rockers (2008),

You Can", "Hole in the Bucket", "People in tha Middle", "Why Oh Why", "Rebel Music", "Keep Me Lifted", "Soulshine", "Bomb
the World", "Say Hey (I Love You)", "Shake It", and "I'm Alive".
