Michael Franti Background

Michael 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!
