Tickets are now available to see Matisyahu, live and in concert, at his upcoming show on Feb. 13th at The Paramount, in Huntington, NY. The concert is part of the Hasidic reggae singer’s short acoustic tour for his new album, Spark Seeker: Acoustic Sessions, which launched January 29 of this year.

Since his debut, the artist formerly known as Matthew Paul Miller, his birth name, has received rave reviews from critics in both the reggae and rock communities. Known for his unique style, mixing reggae, rock and roll, hip-hop and beat-box rhythms to verses from the Torah, the artist was dubbed by Esquire magazine as “the most intriguing reggae artist in the world” in 2006. That same year, hit singles including “One Day” and “King Without a Crown” made the Billboard top 40. His popularity has earned him appearances on popular late night talk shows such as Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno and David Letterman.

No stranger to controversy, in June 2012, the artist caused a big stir when he appeared in an online video to promote his new single, “Sunshine” with a buzz cut of bleach blonde hair, and sans the black hat, beard, yarmulke and flying tzitzis he was long recognized for. He later tweeted: “Sorry folks, all you get is me…no alias. And for those concerned with my naked face, don’t worry… you haven’t seen the last of my facial hair.”

But the Brooklyn born native is still a crowd favorite, and tickets sell out fast when he comes back to his New York roots for a show. Fans of his live show are in for a treat, as the singer calls his new album his most “intimate” work to date. In a recent promotional tour, he said: “I was able to take words and strip away much of that ‘studio’ process, exposing each lyric—bare, with little more than a guitar and a microphone. It’s a different level of emotion that pours out in the acoustic setting.”
