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 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.
