In the crowded New York reggae scene, Hasidic reggae musician Matisyahu literally stands out like no other. With his long beard and black hat, this young lyricist, MC and beatboxer is a singular performer whose power, poetry and skills combine the sounds of Bob Marley and Shlomo Carlebach while remaining wholly original. Trevor Hall writes all of his songs, sings, and plays guitar and harmonica. Ryan Shaw's music is old-style soul and he just belts it out. His material is really catchy, his stage presence is very good and his voice is awesome, very rangy and powerful.
