Michael Franti & Spearhead on Ellen DeGeneres and Lopez Tonight this Tuesday; 2-night stand at Calvin Theatre 11/1 + 2

In conjunction with the release of their much anticipated album, THE SOUND OF SUNSHINE, Michael Franti and Spearhead will perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Lopez Tonight this Tuesday, September 21st. Check your local listings for exact times.

The new album is Michael Franti and Spearhead’s seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2008’s Top 40 hit All Rebel Rockers. The album’s first single and title track, “The Sound of Sunshine” was #1 at AAA for 8 weeks and is currently in the Top 30 at Hot AC. You can check out the video here.

For over two decades, the Bay Area born Franti has been bringing our world exceptionally powerful, deeply felt music. Franti first formed the punk band The Beatnigs while studying at the University of San Francisco, and later the far more hip hop-inflected The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. In the mid-90s, Franti created Spearhead, and increasingly in recent years, he’s found his own voice musically and his own organic brand of popular success. Franti’s impressive series of recordings have vividly reflected his status as a musical citizen of the world.

Franti and Spearhead play a two-night stand at the Calvin Theatre in Northampton on November 1st and 2nd. Tickets are available at Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413-586-8686 and online at
