Michael Franti & Spearhead
Soulrocker With Autographed CD Booklet
In creating their ninth studio album Soulrocker, Michael Franti & Spearhead introduced a new sensibility to their potent hybrid of hip-hop, rock, folk, and reggae: a gracefully arranged take on electronic music that more than fulfills the band’s mission of making impassioned music you can dance to. Along with harnessing the Bay Area-based band’s dynamic energy for a more powerful impact than ever before, Soulrocker again shows Franti’s singular ability to channel frustration into music that’s both thought-provoking and triumphantly hopeful. In a departure from the largely self-produced albums that comprise the rest of the Spearhead catalog, Soulrocker was made in collaboration with Jamaican producers Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (son of reggae luminary Freddie McGregor) and Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin Quee (known for his work with artists like Bruno Mars and John Legend). Though much of the album came to life on the road and in Franti’s home, the band also recorded in Miami’s Circle House Studios, a facility owned by the legendary reggae band Inner Circle.
