Vocals are velvety smooth as they take you on a tropical journey of rich colors and warmth. It is the perfect “feel good” track for the summer.

June 1, 2017

MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD–led by the socially and environmentally conscious singer, songwriter and guitarist–released a joyous, positive and uplifting video for “Summertime Is In Our Hands” over the Memorial Day Weekend.  Filmed in Bali and directed by Franti, the video brings to life a vibrant story about enjoying every moment with a heartening plot twist towards the end. Check out the video here: The song–off his most recent and ninth studio album, SOULROCKER (Fantasy Records)–carries very meaningful inspiration for Franti as it was written when his son was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease. As a result of the diagnosis, they grew closer, valuing their time. The feeling is “summer is whenever, the memories last,” says Franti. “Live your life to the fullest, even in the darkest hour.” A mini-documentary about the “Summertime Is In Our Hands” video and the “Do It For The Love“ organization–the wish-granting non-profit co-founded by Franti and his wife Sara that brings people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live concerts–has also been released.
