Musician, humanitarian, and children's book author, Michael Franti, is recognized as a pioneering force using music as a vehicle for positive change as well as his unforgettable, high energy shows with his band, Spearhead, made up of Carl Young (drums), Manas Itiene (drums), Raleigh J. Neal II (baritone ukulele), and J. Bowman (guitar). With the multi-platinum success of his song, "Say Hey (I Love You)," and the chart breaking 2010 release of The Sound Of Sunshine, Franti and his band guarantee a show that will be thought provoking as well as a fun dance party! "Music is sunshine," says Franti, one of the most positive and conscious artists in music today. "Music gives us new energy and a stronger sense of purpose." Franti has a brand new single, "I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like)," hitting radio stations now, leading into his brand new album to be released this summer.

Mention folk music to the average listener and the usual suspects come to mind: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Woody Guthrie. Talk to SOJA lead singer/guitarist, Jacob Hemphill, and you'll walk away with a different perspective: "To me, Rage Against The Machine, Wu-Tang Clan, Sade, Johnny Cash, and Bob Marley, they're all folk artists. There's no difference between Raekwon saying, ‘I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side, where staying alive was no jive,' to Bob Marley saying, ‘Cold ground was my bed last night and rock was my pillow, too,' to Johnny Cash saying, ‘I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free, but those people keep on moving (around) and that's what tortures me.' Folk is about storytelling. It's timeless; it's limitless and it crosses all boundaries."

Trevor Hall

Trevor Hall photographed by Lauren DukoffTrevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music became his most intimate companion, guide, and creative outlet. At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began (image courtesy of Lauren Dukoff).
