Matisyahu’s latest album, “Akeda” is an emotive, poetic and deeply personal attempt to document his struggle, and I find it to be the most honest and real recording Matis has released to date.
Win two Matisyahu tickets for his October 24 show at the Pantages.
Matisyahu’s performance in Spanish festival cancelled because he refused to make a pro-Palestinian statement.
Matisyahu opens up about his music, but don’t ask him about his beard. He performs an acoustic show at Adath this coming Thursday. Tickets on sale now.
Live at Stubbs, the album that put Matisyahu on the map, came out in 2005. I remember being at camp that summer and hearing it on every stereo throughout the whole grounds. Nobody had heard anything like it, and Jewish summer camp was the perfect place for an album like that to catch fire. The beats were hip, the hooks infectious, and every song seemed to hit the sweet spot between Jewish enough for a rabbi and dope enough for a teenager.
Matisyahu absolutely rocked First Ave last night. The music, the lights, the swaying. It was spiritual and yet totally pop. Check out our videos of “One Day” and “Sunshine” from his show!
I don’t know about you but I have a love/hate relationship with Matisiyahu…kind of the way I feel about Pinchas just with out the violence.
Matisyahu shows the world his face and gives us an opportunity to re-claim our identity.
Matisyahu is going through a change in his life. It’s apparent that he’s had a moment of clarity, and he’s running with it.
After listening to DeScribe’s latest single, “Pure Soul,” featuring Matisyahu, it’s pretty safe to say that Sir Bob Geldoff can rest easy.
