Matisyahu Shares Mini-Documentary Capturing His Ten Years Of Growth Since ‘Youth’

first_imgIt’s been ten years since Matisyahu wrote the lyrics, “Young man the power’s in your hands, throw your fists on the table, and make your demands,” on the title track of his Grammy nominated record Youth. What does the 36 year old who’s been on the road for the better part of a decade see in the 26 year old who was just starting to evolve and mature both musically and spiritually? For Matisyahu, it’s been less about maintaining outward demands, and more of a focused wandering that has brought the singer/songwriter out into the wilderness both in terms of musical exploration and inward change. It’s a journey that, in both a metaphorical and literal sense, has brought the musician home with a more developed sense of what his music and the scene around his music has meant.Watch the mini doc below filmed earlier this month during the ten-year anniversary show for ‘Youth’ at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Matisyahu discusses being back in New York with his three sons after years in LA, having his core players back in the band after a decade of developing his style in a number of other formats, returning to his love of improvisational music, and what it means to be playing a “home-town” show a decade after starting the journey.last_img
