Hollywood, CA (August 16, 2013)-Singer, poet and social activist Michael Franti recently mastered his new album, All People, at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood.
The album features the singles “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” and “Life Is Better With You.” Franti mastered the project with guitarist and recording engineer J Bowman and mastering engineer Brian “Big Bass” Gardner.
“All People is about the beauty of diversity, being your authentic self in a crazy world and the infinite power of love,” remarked Franti. “For everyone that’s been with us for days or decades, I really appreciate the love that you’ve given us. The music is for you and you inspire us.”
Franti is recognized as a pioneering force in using music as a vehicle for social activism. In the mid-Nineties, he formed Spearhead following his punk band The Beatnigs and the hip-hop-inflected The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy.
All People is now available on the Boo Boo Wax/Capitol Records label.
