There are some great live artists in the world whose performances really stamp themselves on your memory and they

don’t get much more memorable than Michael Franti & Spearhead.

One of the most positive and conscious artists in music today, Michael Franti’s musical journey started with his Punk and Hip-Hop beginnings in his bands ‘Beatings’ and ‘The Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy’ (who toured with U2 and Public Enemy). Although Franti’s sound has changed over time, he aims to make music that will stay relevant.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist and philanthropist, Franti knows all about the power of music, along with his band Spearhead they have earned a reputation for the communal spirit they create with their extraordinary live shows and festival performances over the years have been no exception.

The founder of the Do It For Love Foundation brings pleasure to many by gifting people who are living with advanced stages of life – threatening illnesses live concert and ‘meet & greet’ experiences… don’t miss another series of uplifting, soulful experiences courtesy of Michael Franti & Spearhead nationally in 2015!

Donavan Frankenreiter

Hawaii-based singer/guitarist/songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter will be undertaking a gigantic 17 date tour around his Bluesfest appearance.

An accomplished musician, surfer, and renowned for his iconic moustache and quick-witted humour, Frankenreiter’s tour will be focusing on the great surf towns of the country and regional Australia, anticipating a richer experience of people and place than the standard capital-city run that most international acts stick to.

The Australian Top 40 favourite will be performing material from his fifth full-length album Start Livin’ as well as old fan favourites. The follow-up to 2010’s popular ‘Glow’ is a selection of folk-infused songs that sweetly showcase Frankenreiter’s rich, honey-thick vocals and masterful guitar work. Start Livin’ bears all the intimacy of an impromptu back-porch performance and the tenderness of a treasured love letter, but also has a feel-good, up-tempo vibe throughout, including the title track that calls the listener to celebrate the moment.

We can’t think of a better guiding light for a live music experience and fans of his infectious, acoustic tunes will have plenty of opportunities to see him. This is sure to be one of the feel-good highlights of 2015 live music.

After a hugely successful Australian & Canadian tour with The Tea Party, JEFF MARTIN will embark on a National Australian tour throughout March and April in solo mode.

It was a mammoth year for Jeff Martin in 2014.  The Tea Party frontman teamed up with The Superjesus’ SARAH McLEOD on their National ‘Man The Life Boats’ Tour, hit the studio with his fellow Tea Party bandmates for the recording of their first album in ten years, the critically acclaimed ‘The Ocean At The End’, sold out Theatre shows in both Canada & Australia and.  The fans were out in droves to capture the magic of the band that once was, and still remains and saw Jeff Martin completely in his element, with a fire in his head performing at his absolute finest alongside his fellow band mates.  The latter part of the year saw Jeff producing forthcoming records for local Australian artists The Black Diamond Express, Lepers and Crooks and Revelator (watch this space) and with a bunch of new material under his belt, Jeff will hit the road to perform around the country through March and April 2015.
