Matisyahu is my new favourite singer.....this guy absolutely blows me away.
Check out three of his tracks here;
Ok so you may have worked out from the title that Matisyahu is an orthodox Hasidic jew, but his reggae style is amazing, his totally original lyrics are an amazing blend of religion and self empowerment.
It's great to see how someone can take totally diverse areas and make it their own so powerfully.
He's local to NY but touring at the moment so hopefully I'll get a chance to see him live sooner rather than later.
He's got a great sounding but average looking live video here http://www.hasidicreggae.com/index.php?section=article&album_id=0&id=31
