2009 has been an incredible year for Matisyahu, releasing acclaimed third album Light (Epic Records) to rave reviews, lending anthemic lead single “One Day” as the theme song for NBC’s Winter Olympics campaign and amassing more than 1 million followers on Twitter. He’s been playing to packed houses during his massively successful North American tour, bringing his fans a show that can be labeled nothing short of an experience. With an intense energy and a vibrant presence, Matisyahu is one of the most dynamic and captivating live performers in music today. With his prolific lyrics, epic choruses and genre-spanning music, he effortlessly transcends classification to claim a space all his own. With influences spanning reggae-soul, ska-inflected new wave, pop-rock and acoustic folk, his new collection of songs is tied together with triumphant melodies and his powerful and distinct voice – a voice that calls for peace, hope and understanding.
