It’s not every day you come upon a Hasidic Jewish musician singing reggae about his religious devotion. But, in a nutshell, that describes Matisyahu. In 2006, he broke through with a top 10 hit and an album that sold more than half a million copies. In his early days, Matisyahu was Matthew Miller and he dropped out of high school to follow the band Phish.

Matisyahu performs at UAB’s Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center, Sunday, August 28th.
