Michael Franti is a musician, humanitarian, and filmmaker who is recognized as a pioneering force in the music industry.
Franti believes in using music as a vehicle for positive change and is revered for his energetic live shows, inspiring music, and worldwide philanthropy efforts. Once an outlier in his message of positivity minded political consciousness, Franti has found that message gaining momentum in the mainstream in recent years, a phenomenon that compelled him to push his artistry even further, stating "I feel a deeper sense of purpose in music today than I ever have in my career. My goal is to make the most inspiring music I possibly can for this intense, crazy and wonderful time we're all living in." He is currently writing and recording his 10th studio album with A-list producers which is due out in 2018.
