This quickly seems to be the song of the summer, which is nice to see, as no one can claim he didn’t pay his dues.
I was listening to Today FM the other day, and Tony Fenton said ‘I’ve no idea who Michael Franti is, but if he keeps making songs like this, we’ll be hearing him for a long time’. As we all know there’s no higher endorsement that praise from Tony.
Michael Franti is of course the former lead singer of the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and Spearhead, and one of the nicest people you’ll ever see on stage. He just glows! Nice to see him doing well, even if it isn’t his finest hour musically.
The song and album ‘Sound of Sunshine’ were actually released last September, but seems to have waited until now to do well!
