Reggae Fusion Artist Matisyahu’s Tour Comes to Boston – (July 7th – Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.)
Matisyahu’s popularity rests on his unique style of reggae fusion which is a melding of reggae, hip-hop, and alternative rock sounds. All this is further characterized by the Orthodox Jewish-oriented lyrics to his songs. Matisyahu is this musician’s Hebrew name which he adopted during his various religious experiences in the United States and Israel that led to a spiritual awakening and the discovery of his true self. He is utterly devoted to his religious beliefs and shares them with the rest of the world through his music. A uniquely rare and interesting gem in the world of reggae, he has become wildly popular both in the United States and abroad.
Matisyahu’s smash hit single “King without a Crown” made it into the Top 40 in 2004 and into the Modern Rock Top 10 in it’s live version in 2006. This song is included on the album Youth (2004) which achieved gold status as did his first ever album release entitled Live at Stubbs (2005). Youth also hit the top of Billboard’s Digital Album chart in 2006 when the magazine named Matisyahu “Top Reggae Artist of the Year“. In 2007, his music was part of the soundtrack of an award documentary film entitled “Unsettled”.
More recent projects include a guest artist slot on the cd “Instant Karma – Save Dafur”, a musical tribute to John Lennon, and a new album of his own entitled “Light” to be released in August of this year. This Boston appearance is part of huge tour of 35 cities. Here is a sampling of some of his latest music. If you plan to attend the concert, you can expect a exhilarating and enthusiastic show from this artist. Matisyahu’s spirited performances come from the heart of an artist who hopes to make an improvement in the world, as he communicates his messages of world peace and togetherness through his music.
