Watch Matisyahu perform “Thunder” and “On Nature”:
Matthew Miller, better known by his stage name Matisyahu, burst on the music scene in 2004 and soon gained critical acclaim with a Grammy-nomination and two gold albums for his reggae-inspired music. This week, Kim Lawton of Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly sits down with Matisyahu to talk about the continuing evolution of his music and his spiritual journey, from being raised in a non-religious home to becoming an orthodox Hasidic Jew. Matisyahu’s music has also become more mainstream. His hit single “One Day” is featured in NBC’s ad campaign for the upcoming Winter Olympics.
