This Summer Michael Franti & Spearhead, will launch the first-­‐ever music & yoga tour, Soulshine, that will bridge daytime and nighttime experiences including music, yoga, sustainable lifestyle and dj’s guaranteeing a full-­‐blown dance party! SOJA, Brett Dennen and Trevor Hall will be joining the North American Tour along with Special Guest Yoga Teachers. The 30+ city tour kicks off on June 19th in Southern California and will make its way across North America, ending in Nashville, TN at the Woods at Fontanel on August 2nd.

With a collective reach of over 90 million impressions, the four bands: Michael Franti & Spearhead, SOJA, Brett Dennen and Trevor Hall, come together for a tour that embraces their passions and love of music, dance, yoga and sustainability. Soulshine will be affordably priced, offering activities to keep people of all ages entertained throughout the day and night.

Each afternoon on the Soulshine tour will begin with a mass yoga and acoustic music jam with Michael Franti & Friends, led by some of today's most inspiring teachers from across North America. The yoga session is designed for people of all experience levels, ages, shapes and sizes and will feature artists participating side by side with fans. Michael Franti has been practicing yoga for over 12 years, having appeared in numerous publicans such as Yoga Journal, Origin, Mantra and Yoga magazines. The tour will be incorporating yoga studio networks across the nation and inviting the founders, teachers and students of the studios to the shows to support the tour, share the lifestyle and have fun. Italian-­‐rooted and Napa Valley based winery and restaurant, Ca’ Momi, has come on as a sponsor for the tour sharing in the philosophy of sustainability, authenticity and mindful presence in both business and personal interactions. Mantra and Origin magazines are the official media partners of the Soulshine tour.

The afternoon Yoga and acoustic music jam will give way to the full concert in the evening. The concert itself will feature unforgettable moments from four of today’s most passionate, authentic and incredible live acts.

Michael Franti & Spearhead have earned a reputation as one of the most electrically charged and ultimately unforgettable live acts in the business. Michael Franti has sold over 2.5million singles of his hit song “Say Hey (I Love You)” and has charted his albums in Billboard’s Top 40 along with frequent appearances on David Letterman, Leno, Conan, Oprah, Ellen and CNN. Franti & Spearhead released the acclaimed album All People last year and have been touring ever since. Franti is recognized as a pioneering force in music as a vehicle for social activism. Not only is he a singer-­‐songwriter-­‐guitarist and philanthropist, he has also diligently created and supported numerous environmental, humanitarian and social causes. It all explains the evolution of sound on All People -­‐ colossal dance beats and dizzying electronic effects taking the fore, as well as lyrical sincerity that has always had Franti singing about what moves him most.

Later this year, SOJA will be releasing their fifth studio album featuring the single “I Believe” co-­‐written by and featuring Michael Franti. Over the course of the past few years, the band has sold more than 200,000 albums, including their critically acclaimed 2012 album, Strength To Survive (ATO Records), which made an impassioned call for unity and change with universally relatable songs about faith, hope and love. Non-­‐stop touring, headlining and selling out large theaters in more than 20 countries around the world, sharing stages with everyone from Dave Matthews Band to Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley, has helped generate over 60 million YouTube views, 3 million Facebook fans, and an almost Grateful Dead-­‐like international fan base that grows
with each tour, with caravans of diehards following them from city to city. Most impressive of all, SOJA has accomplished all this on their own.

Northern California’s Brett Dennen’s 2013 album, Smoke and Mirrors, may be the folk-­‐pop singer-­‐ songwriter's strongest effort yet. Led by the cheerful, hook-­‐heavy single "Wild Child," Dennen's fifth album shifts gracefully from lilting, breezy pop ("You Make It Easy") to heartfelt balladry ("Only Want You"). The nostalgic "When We Were Young" is also worthy of a listen; its simple, upbeat message urges maturing rock fans to turn up their radios and stay forever young. Dennen was named by Rolling Stone magazine as an “Artist to Watch” and, in 2008, Entertainment Weekly called him one of its eight "Guys on the Rise.”

Trevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music quickly became his most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-­‐out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s self-­‐titled debut album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7 in 2009, he was named one of the Top 20 New Artists by Music Connection magazine, in 2010 MTV named him one of the twenty emerging artists for 2010, and in 2012 CBS used his hit “Brand New Day” for the promo of their CBS This Morning show. His most recent album, Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, reached 80th on the Billboard 200 chart. He has a new album due this year.

Brett Dennen

Brett’s 2006 release, So Much More, officially launched him as a discovery artist and drew frequent comparisons to troubadours like Paul Simon and Tom Petty.

Trevor Hall (Acoustic/Folk/Reggae)

If Trevor Hall’s 2009 self-titled Vanguard Records debut represented the young musician’s struggle with finding himself, his follow-up, Everything Everytime Everywhere (August 23rd) is a courageous affirmation that he has become the man he had been seeking.
