Michael Franti @ KUT 9/20/12
Michael Franti isn’t easy to pin down, musically. He and his band, Michael Franti & Spearhead, play an interesting blend of hip-hop, funk, reggae, jazz, folk and rock. However, he’s a lot easier to pin down when it comes to musical mood. His latest album, The Sound of Sunshine, sounds exactly how you would expect sunshine to. It’s bright, it’s happy, and it wraps you up in its positivity and optimistic energy. Michael Franti & Spearhead have been going strong as a band since 1994, touring across the country and recording together. Michael Franti & Spearhead will be in Austin on Thursday, playing a show at the Long Center for the Performing Arts. They stopped by KUT to play live in Studio 1A. Check it out HERE!
