Matisyahu is not what you'd expect from a reggae artist. Dressed in traditional Hasidic clothing and refusing to perform on the Sabbath, Matisyahu blends reggae-style raps about Orthodox Judaism with the traditional Hazzan style of Jewish cantors. The end result is a compelling CD filled with danceable music and uplifting messages that inspire people worldwide.

Amos Lee

Amos Lee is a thoughtful folk and blues musician who questions what's happening in the world with a critical—but not cynical—eye. “I'm in love with a girl who's in love with the world,” he sings softly, strumming his acoustic guitar.

Carbon Glacier

Laura Veirs' Carbon Glacier is the perfect tonic for moody weather blues. Plaintive, tender, yet hopeful, Veirs' poetry is rooted in the forces of nature—snow caves, forests, the open sea—and backed by improv talents like Eyvind Kang and Lori Goldston.
