Leave it to Matisyahu to remind us that holiday music isn't just about Christmas. The Jewish rapper has recorded a new song titled 'Happy Hanukkah,' and in the spirit of the holiday season, all proceeds from purchasing the tune will benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy...
The concept of religious sacrifice is familiar to anyone who's ever attended a church service, but for musician and actor Matisyahu, devotion to his faith forced him to make a decision that derailed his career completely -- at least for awhile.
The Dirty Heads hit the road with Matisyahu earlier this summer for a joint North American tour that runs through the end of September, giving them the opportunity -- some may say obligation -- to team up each night for a performance of ‘Dance All Night,’ the quick-burning groove off the Heads' ‘Cabin by the Sea’ album featuring guest vocals from the formerly Hasidic rapper.
Matthew Paul Miller keeps it real. The emcee, better known by his Hebrew name Matisyahu, gained fame as a bearded "Chassidic reggae superstar.” Those days are over; the Hasidic facial hair is gone. Though clean-shaven and blonde these days, the spiritual search continues with ‘Spark Seeker,’ an electro-reggae record that will keep your head nodding and your mind thinking.
