The Grammy Nominated Reggae/Fusion artist Matisyahu released his sixth studio album “Undercurrent” earlier this year. Probably best known for his chart-climbing songs “King Without a Crown” and “One Day”, the LP “Undercurrent” is a breakaway from traditional recording for the artist, recording the music first and allowing that to inspire his vocals; a project he recently told Billboard was “special”. December 9th we bare witness to the fruits of his labor.
Accompanying the work on ”Undercurrent,” Matisyahu also released two videos giving us a look at the planning and production behind the project and also has a track he recorded with Common Kings named “Broken Crowns,” thus giving title to this tour. For more, go to his official site at MatisyahuWorld.com, join his 1 Million + followers on Facebook at @Matisyahu and be at Concord Music Hall this December 9!
“Head rocking beats, feel good vibes, and emotional fever” reggae inspired flavors describes Common Kings best. Featuring musicians with roots in the South Pacific, this band resides in Southern California and has been building it’s following with their latest LP “Lost In Paradise” and, just released on December 1, the single “Today’s a New Day” (featuring hip hop rockers ¡MAYDAY!)
Last but definitely not least, the tour opens with Orphan. With little to their story to go on, this reggae band hails from Brooklyn, New York and video clips on their Facebook indicate they are talented musicians ready to rock their set this Saturday. Everyone that has seen them live has become a fan and either loves them or thinks they are awesome. Literally, “love” and “awesome” are the words most thrown around in their reviews.
Check out Orphan on Facebook at @OrphanMusicNYC and at the Broken Crowns tour!
