Review for Matisyahu:
Matisyahu blasts off yet again with Spark Seeker, a bold new studio album that finds the one-of-a-kind vocalist and songwriter exploring uncharted territory with help from an expansive cast of collaborators from around the globe.
He recorded the 13-track album in Los Angeles, New York and Israel. Throughout Spark Seeker you can hear Matisyahu embodying the album’s title—and embracing its humble promise. “This is definitely pushing the boundaries of what I’ve done before,” he acknowledges. “It’s a new kind of record for me.”
Matisyahu has established a reputation for transcending boundaries- from the stripped-down roots reggae of the gold-certified Live at Stubb’s to the trippy ministrations of the Grammy nominated Youth to the polished pop eclecticism of Light. In 2010, he returned to the venerable Austin venue that introduced him for Live at Stubb’s, Vol. II, demonstrating that all of his travels had only strengthened his connection to his musical bedrock. Selling over 2 million albums worldwide, it has been a whirlwind half-decade journey, one that earned Matisyahu a place in pop culture at large.
