Michael Franti & Spearhead Review

I credit yoga and music with giving me an outlet to bring peace and sanity into my hectic daily routine. Michael Franti is a world famous artist who believes that “like sunshine, music is a powerful force that can almost instantly and chemically change your entire mood.” In his lyrically beautiful new music CD, The Sound of Sunshine, Michael Franti & Spearhead has created an inspiring new album that I really enjoy listening to during my morning yoga routine. The other day I looked over and my 3, 4 and 6 year old children were quietly dancing to the music too. My favorite song is “I’ll Be Waiting” which reminds me of a love song for those in difficult situations, to which we can all relate in one way or another. The artist’s voice and instruments are smooth, calming and very soothing. The Sound of Sunshine is available for purchase in hard copy or as a digital download for only $9.99. You can also learn more about the artist or listen to sample tracks by visiting Michael Franti’s website.

In addition to his music career, Michael Franti is dedicated to yoga and he even has a Bali Yoga Retreat! The Stay Human line includes organic apparel and gear for yoga enthusiasts. I just love the Women’s V-Neck Downward Dog top that is made of 100% organic cotton… is so stylish and looks like it would be very comfortable too.

Check out this Stay Human Silver Black Lace Bracelet that is made out of eco-silver reclaimed from cell phones, computer chips etc. It is really unique and would make a fantastic gift idea at only $50.

You can feel confident that products purchased from the Stay Human line are eco-friendly, made of sustainable resources and recycled products too. In addition, Stay Human donates 10% of their proceeds to charitable organizations. You are invited to view the entire Stay Human collection and purchase your favorite items.
