    Default Matisyahu

    Anyone seen/heard anything of him, just seen his video King without a crown and gotta say it sounds allright.

    For those who don't know him, he's a Jewish Reggae artist, don't be fooled by his looks tho

    His live album is better. Its more slowed down. It just sounds better live. He kills it. Im gonna see him at Lollapalooza in chicago this summer.

    Live At Stubbs is excellent. I have no idea how this guy, a Jewish Reggae artist, actually managed to get radio time, but he does, and I think hes very talented. I honestly heard him for the 1st time on some random alternative station and I thought it was weird enough that there was reggae on the radio, let alone really good, new reggae. I downloaded that album and i've been very impressed.

    nah, like the guy above me aways sed, its Snow's "Informer" all over again just marketed in a more tactful way...because the jewish dressing shit is mad gimmicky, and everyone wants to hear a "traditional looking jew sing reggae" no matter how the fuck good he is at it, he would sell based on how he looks.

    Yeh you've got a point there, but I heard his CD before I'd seen his appearance, so didn't have a clue it was a jew (altho you can clearly hear he ain't Jamaican) ... Found out when I tried to find some more background info bout him, but it's true alot of artists get playtime coz of gimmicks like that

    The guy's a good singer, if you listen to his lyrics, it's better than a good three quarters of the long-haired indie rock bullshit that's ruling the airwaves right now...I'd rather listen to Matisyahu than fuckin' Franz Ferdinand...
