We're thrilled to announce that artist, activist and all-round legend Michael Franti and his magnificent band Spearhead will play three Aussie headline shows this April, proudly presented by Moshcam. The man and his band are already a major drawcards for Blues & Roots Festivals in Perth, Deniliquin and Byron Bay but now they'll get to shine on their own at intimate shows in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.
‘All People’, Spearhead’s eighth studio album was released on CD in Australia in August 2013 (through EMI Music), perfect timing ahead of their tour here and coinciding with the digital release, due early 2014. The band will showcase songs from this new record, including brand new single ‘I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)’, as well as their classic hits with tracks from chart breaking 2010 release “The Sound Of Sunshine”, and the multi-platinum song “Say Hey (I Love You)”.
“Well-crafted, unfailingly likable, the music hints at his activist-sage roots. For those who plan to go down dancing, he's a solid man to have on the mic”. – Rolling Stone
Michael Franti & Spearhead are heralded as one of the best live show experiences out there, with a truly interactive performance that breaks down barriers between artist and audience. “When Franti and his superb band, Spearhead, step foot on the stage you will bear witness to one of the greatest musical miracles of your life.” writes Antimusic.com.
We'll see you there.
