EMI inks Franti

SPEARHEADING THE OFFENSIVE: Speaking of EMI A&R (as we do two items below), the company recently inked veteran artist Michael Franti, who’s coming off the addictive, million-selling single “Say Hey (I Love You).” New singles will be released later this month from Franti’s forthcoming Boo Boo Wax/Capitol LP, The Sound of Sunshine, hitting later this summer. Franti noted that the success of “Say Hey” and his album All Rebel Rockers “has allowed even more people to hear the music. Our new fans have become a part of the family and I’m happy to have this new family extend to everyone at EMI.” Added EVP Promo and Marketing Greg Thompson: “We are honored to be involved with such a gifted artist, whose incredible spirit, coupled with his musical genius, makes him one of the most exciting performers and musicians in the music scene today.” (5/19a)
