Michael Franti & Spearhead
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Michael Franti is a musician, filmmaker and humanitarian who is recognized as a pioneering force in the music industry. Long known for his globally conscious lyrics, powerful performances, and dynamic live shows, Franti has continually been at the forefront of lyrical activism, using his music as a positive force for change. “I make music because I believe it can change people's lives and make a difference in the world,” enthuses Franti, “music gives us new energy and a stronger sense of purpose.” He and his band Spearhead, known for their authentic and uplifting music, have found global success with multi-platinum songs like "Say Hey (I Love You)”, the chart breaking 2010 release of The Sound Of Sunshine. Franti and his band guarantee a show that will be thought provoking as well as energetic. Franti has a brand new single, “Once A Day” from his upcoming debut album on Fantasy Records. “Once a Day” was inspired by his son's diagnosis with a rare kidney disease called FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) in the hopes that this song would inspire anyone in the world who is going through challenging times. “My belief is that through music, dance and gratitude for this life we can all ‘rise up’,” explains Franti. "Once A Day" was produced by Supa Dups (Eminem, Damian Marley, Bruno Mars) and features special guest Sonna Rele. This new song has the same feel-good, inspiring vibe as "Say Hey (I Love You)," his 2x platinum hit single. Giving back has always been at the heart of Franti’s mission, he has dedicated his life to spreading the joy of music and positivity to millions of people. 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.

Trevor Green
Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor
Green. His music is something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual
fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, an array of percussion
instruments and decorated of symbolic ancestral nature, Green's stage appears to be a musical
playground not for the faint of heart.
"I follow the music where it leads me. Through this process I find the music always comes from
an honest place and that is most important in receiving the songs when they come through."
What deepens the music is Trevor's ability to connect with his audience. Threading together sing-
able and uplifting melodies, dynamic instrumentation, heart pounding rhythms combined with
the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo, and his spontaneous improvisational ability, Green's
performance is a one man powerhouse with universal appeal that seems to come from the ground
up. With his honest delivery and ability to extricate the music from a deep place of truth, he leads
his audience through vast landscapes of sound, weaving together a magnetic and spellbinding
performance.
Through Green's devotion to bring forward the messages of our ancestors and connect deeply
with culture, he recently launched a successful crowdfunding campaign that sent him, his wife,
two young children and the son of his adopted Navajo brother on a two month journey into the
heart of Australia to discover the roots of the aboriginal culture and the story behind the
didgeridoo (yidaki), which has been such a fundamental part of the soundscape of his music.
Performing 25 shows across the region and meeting with various wisdom keepers from the
indigenous aboriginal cultures, this would prove to be yet another life altering journey of
profound magnitude. In seeking a deeper understanding and connection to didgeridoo, he was
lead to a far deeper connection with the aboriginal community of Northeast Arnhem Land where
he and his family were adopted into the Galpu clan.
Given the name “North Wind” by elder
Djalu Gurruwiwi, Trevor brings the blessing back to North America where he offers his fifth
studio album 'Voice of the Wind.
