Michael Franti & Spearhead
I have a new old music crush. I first knew of Michael Franti in the early 90s through The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. After that I heard him with Spearhead but honestly, in the last ten years or so, his music and work kind of slipped off my radar. MY BAD. Because since last night, at a CARE event I was involved in, in Washington DC, my radar is bleeping furiously. It is bleeping for Michael, and for Jolene Rust who sings with him and for Jay Bowman, who plays guitar and has ones of the best all-time smiles I've ever seen. So beautiful to see, all of them, all of it. Gush gush gush.
