Michael Franti

Michael Franti is a reggae-funk artist from Oakland, California. He is known for having peace-heavy messages in his music.

Michael Franti formed a band called Spearhead in 1994 and has been playing with them since.

Jebbica and John Galt met Michael Franti in 2007 at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, where we snapped this picture. He was one of the nicest people we met and inhumanly tall!

About Gravy and Biscuits

After being alive for over three years, Gravy and Biscuits finally found its home as an indie music e-zine.

The staff is a group of Southerners who love good music, from indie to bluegrass to electronic, and lots in between.

Review-wise, we aim to give both intimate and informative reviews without being pretentious. Anybody can use a thesaurus, but we have Southern charm.
