As society becomes more divided and suspicious by the tweet, Michael Franti has been a force for unity and positivity in music for well over two decades, longevity that can be credited to his grasp of the old pop axiom that a catchy tune makes even the most bristling message easier to swallow. Franti was a master of that even in his ‘90s groups the Beatnigs and Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy; with Spearhead, his longest-running project to date, he’s traded in vitriolic hip-hop for a sunny blend of pop, reggae, and EDM that reached its zenith with the 2008 Top 20 single “Say Hey (I Love You).” Like Bob Marley before him, Franti seems to know that lasting change is only possible one satisfied and enlightened audience at a time, and Spearhead — going strong as of last year’s Soulrocker and their current “Love Out Loud” tour — is a long way from giving up that fight.
