Grammy-nominated reggae-hip-hop-rock vocalist/beat-boxer Matisyahu has been keeping very busy as of late. Last year, he released his sixth studio album, Undercurrent, and proceeded to tour extensively behind the LP, including a late-2017 run with Common Kings and Orphan dubbed “The Broken Crowns Tour.” Matisyahu was able to multi-task during the tour, taking the time to record the upcoming fourth installation of his Live At Stubb’s series during a stop in Austin.
The Broken Crowns Tour also included a memorable performance at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY–a venue that’s hosted a thoroughly impressive amount of world-class talent over the years. During the show at The Cap (a hometown performance for the White Plains, NY native), Matisyahu and company utilized the theater’s full-wall projection capabilities to introduce a new film that’s tied to the album’s message.
As Matisyahu explains regarding the significance of the Capitol Theatre performance, “During the evolution of the Undercurrent album, we filmed a movie for the record. This hometown performance at the Capitol Theatre marked the first time it was seen publicly, projected behind us during ‘Forest of Faith’…”
Today, Live For Live Music is excited to premiere the official live video of “Forest of Faith” from Matisyahu’s December 23rd, 2017 performance at The Capitol Theatre, featuring the Undercurrent movie projections. Watch the performance below:
Matisyahu – “Forest of Faith” – The Capitol Theatre – 12/23/17
Matisyahu has hit the ground running with “Forest of Faith” and the rest of his new material in 2018. His “Forest of Faith Tour” with Colorado-based rock-fusion outfit Eminence Ensemble is already underway and will keep him and his band (guitarist Aaron Dugan, bassist Stu Brooks, drummer Joe Tomino, and keyboardist Big Yuki) on the road throughout the next two months.
The Forest of Faith Tour means entering into the unknown of the music and creating unique musical experiences born out of the immediate here and now, much like the innate beauty and purity of the untouched forest. I am looking forward to starting out 2018 dancing, listening, singing, and making music together with you who allow me the opportunity…this February and March in a town near you. Blessings and love.
