Michael Franti combines his love of R&B, hip-hop, reggae and poetry into a unique blend of music that inspires both the soul and mind. Franti is a charismatic performer and lead vocalist who connects seamlessly with his audience during his live performances. On his recent album, All People, Franti exudes a sun-drenched and upbeat vibe, especially in his new song, “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” which sets the scene for his other whistle-along hits. Franti’s humanitarian, social justice, and peace efforts continue to inspire his music and are infused throughout his upcoming album on Fantasy Records due to release in May 2016.
