Michael Franti is a globally recognized musician, humanitarian, activist, and award-winning filmmaker revered for his high-energy live shows, inspiring music, devotion to health and wellness, worldwide philanthropic efforts and the power of optimism.
"One thing I learned these last couple of years is that people need people. I wrote many songs about connection, resilience and finding the light, even in the midst of all the crazy," said Franti on the album. "Somewhere in there we find resilience, and I hope Follow Your Heart gives you the courage to continue looking for and holding onto that perseverance. This record is all about listening to the voice inside you so that you can live your life to the fullest and have ease of heart everyday, and I hope you feel that when you listen!"
Throughout his multi-decade career, Michael Franti has earned three Billboard No. 1s, as well as six Top 30 Hot AC singles, 10 Top 25 AAA Singles and three Billboard Top 5 Rock Albums.
