In town last month for an appearance at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, Michael Franti & Spearhead made time while in Seattle to stop by the new studio space that houses independent radio station KEXP. The station has shared video footage of frontman Michael Franti leading the group through a five-song in-studio live performance.
Recorded with host Kevin Cole on September 2, each of the five songs selected for the session appear on Franti & Spearhead’s studio album Soulrocker which was released this summer on Fantasy Records. The set includes Franti chatting with Cole between renditions of “Get Myself To Saturday,” “Good To Be Alive Today,” “I Got Love For Ya,” “Crazy For You” and “My Lord.” Watch the full performance here:
