Matisyahu returned to Austin and more specifically Stubb’s to record a second volume live cd, to get the opportunity to photograph Matisyahu was a dream come true. His artistry and presence send chills up my spine, I admire his craft and the way he creates his art while staying true to himself and his beliefs. For my followers that aren’t familiar with his work, Matisyahu is a Hasidic Jewish reggae rapper/beat boxer. His lyrics are inspiring, intellectual and spiritual to say the least. To receive this opportunity was an absolute blessing and if you are a friend on my facebook or follow me on twitter, you know that was all I talked about for like 4 days! I’ve thrown a few sneak peeks of the concert on here and I hope you have enjoyed them. Below are more photos and to see all of them add me on facebook as the whole album will be uploaded for your viewing pleasure!
Open up the gate
Let my prayer rise up
And I struggle every day just to get myself up
For the force of gravity that keeps sinking my ship
Time again one is bound to slip
We rip through these days
We flip through the age
Survive stay alive we won’t trip in the haze
Lost in the maze
I know it’s just a phase
But I dread it dread it dread it
I won’t let my life go to waste
I’m a struggla
– Matisyahu. “Struggla”
love it. live it. capture it.
