We had the pleasure of interviewing Matisyahu over Zoom video!

The Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and alternative reggae rock musician Matisyahu recently release his new EP, Hold The Fire, via his own label Fallen Sparks Records.

In his continued support of his Jewish roots, Matisyahu, who has never shied away from speaking his mind about current topics, his religion, and the history of the Jewish people, is also using his platform to speak out about the current war in Israel. He recently made a surprise appearance at the March for Israel in Washington, DC performing his global anthem “One Day” with The Maccabeats, a standout moment for the hundreds of thousands who gathered and watched, and also recently performed for and spoke at Columbia University to uplift the students amidst the rise of antisemitism on college campuses.

Matisyahu has always used his music, which is rooted in the heritage of the Jewish people, as a source of empowerment and strength. “Fireproof” is another testament to that with its timely and hopeful message that is resonating with listening everywhere and has even been hailed as “an anthem of overcoming adversity.” “Fireproof” touches upon Matisyahu’s unwavering ability to keep his artistic fire burning while exploring the topics of perseverance and gratitude in times of trouble, a theme everyone can relate to. The new single stems from a dream Matisyahu had about holding the fire, which became a metaphor for him as an artist and as a Jew and serves as the inspiration for the EP’s title and theme. While the new EP is centered around the four earth elements, Matisyahu also reflects on celebrity and artistic success and the observation that we often find ourselves imitating other people or listening too much to their opinions of us, as he explores in “Fool’s Gold.” For nearly two decades, Matisyahu has kept his creative spirit aflame by evolving his sound, melding genres, and testing the limits of the musical traditions that have inspired him. A special kind of fire spurred the creation of Hold The Fire.

About Matisyahu:

Like only the most gifted storytellers, Matisyahu spins the rare kind of stories that simultaneously enlighten, enthrall, and expand the audience’s sense of possibility. Known for his skill in blending a shapeshifting collision of reggae, hip-hop, alt rock and boldly inventive pop – all while paying homage to his spirituality and roots in Judaism – Matisyahu’s live shows consistently provide audiences with a dynamic and energetic performance full of life and illumination. With nearly 20 years under his belt, he’s teamed up with the best improvisational musicians and artists for jam sessions and collaborations, and his long and winding career consists of seven studio albums including the chart-topping Light (2009), Youth (2006), and Spark Seeker (2012), as well as Akeda (2014), Undercurrent (2017), and Matisyahu (2022), and various live albums including his 2005 Gold-certified breakthrough Live At Stubb’s. This past summer, the New York-raised and New Jersey-based multi-talent released Live In Brooklyn, recorded at the iconic Brooklyn Bowl New York during his annual Festival of Light. Exemplifying his transcendent live show, Live In Brooklyn features renditions of fan-favorites and global hits including the Gold-certified “One Day” – whose original version has been streamed over 150 million times on Spotify alone – and the genre-bending, Billboard Hot 100-charting and alt-radio topping breakthrough single “King Without A Crown.”
