Listening to a wonderful song by a great artist I found on xm radio: "Low Down Low" by Kerri Powers. Can be found at here myspace.com site. As Wynonna sang in Rock Bottom, when you are down low up is the only way to go, right?

I've been getting into Matisyahu, Hasidic reggae who woulda thunk it?

Sounds unconventional for sure, but that is a good thing. I happen to love many recordings of klezmer and sephardic music.

Good Morning all,  Its been a very long and emotional week for me...SO I desperately need some up lifting music to make me smile and destress. I have been reading the post from the previous week and they did make me feel better.

In a Wynonna mood of late.

When I Reach the Place I'm Going  and Live With Jesus (even for a Jewish boy!) from her first solo are yet others, but not sure I have an immediate link to send.

Hope I can get more ideas later...hang in there!!

My 14-year-old daughter introduced me to Matisyahu, for which I thank her.  I hope no-one automatically considers something a 14 yo likes an anti-recommendation. There's an amazing range of stuff on her iTunes list--much of it in Japanese (she loves manga & anime as well as "J-Pop"), some in French...meanwhile she plays oboe in band and orchestra, and sometimes prints out sheet music of themes from video & computer games, a surprising number of which sound great on the oboe. 

I enjoy "King without a Crown" although Matisyahu is controversial for his politics. Word is, he won't shake the hands of women.  Not sure how that came to be -- maybe a religious thing?

I've heard of Matisyahu but haven't heard his tunes. The reviews seem to indicate that he's pretty good.

Reggae-wise I've been listening to a compilation put together by DJ Scratchy, a guy who used to play the music before and after Clash concerts. He's a real reggae fan, and put together a nice collection called Scratch Sounds. Maybe a few too many covers for my tastes, but otherwise some great songs. He has his own podcast; I listened to one of them and it was full of stuff from around the world. He's sort of keeping Joe Strummer's flame alive. Or lit. Or however the metaphor goes.

Religious thing? A true hasidic is nuts.

Curious to hear this guy,  but sometimes myspace won't play.

"King without a Crown", "Close my Eyes",  and check out his "Beat Box"...  aside from that i'm not too into his stuff.  Reminds me of Rocker T.

White Reggae singers are a trip. Bradley Nowell could do it. Don't know too many others.
