Feature: Michael Franti

I just discovered Michael Franti and boy have I been missing out!

I subscribe to the Gorilla Food newsletter and they recently linked to a video Michael Franti did for his youtube channel.

So who is this guy? According to Wikipedia: he is vegan, he doesn’t wear shoes (except for the occasional flip-flop when airports etc require footwear), his tours avoid bottled water, and his tour-bus runs on biodiesel. He even made a documentary film called “I Know I’m Not Alone” about the war in the middle east. I think his band “Michael Franti & Spearhead” is opening for John Mayer right now (why do I always jump on these bandwagons AFTER people come to town haha). This guy is a great example of awesome. He even has his own clothing line called “Stay Human“. You may have heard his single “Say Hey” without knowing who he is. He writes songs about all sorts of things, from social justice to compassion. Have a listen.
