    Matisyahu with Adam Weinberg

    Matisyahu with Adam Weinberg

    Last week, roots reggae musician Matisyahu dropped the Hold the Fire Acoustic EP and yes as the name suggests these are stripped down acoustic versions of the songs on the EP by the same name. This acoustic EP also features collaborator Adam Weinberg. A very poetic and poignant song for the times we’re living in. Matisyahu’s touring woes and the blatant anti-semitism he faces on tour have been well documented here and elsewhere, but true to his craft and his supportive community he sojourns on. I caught up with Matisyahu and Adam Weinberg to talk about the inspiration behind releasing acoustic music, what’s next in for Matisyahu and I even asked collaborator Adam Weinberg the status of his solo material. 
     
    First song: Lifeline
    Second song: End of the World

Best live music podcast out there!

I look forward to The Live Five podcast every week for the best collection of live music!

Adam Weinberg ,

Great interviewer

Love the podcast. Got first introduced to Ira and his podcast through Reed Mathis a while back (which remains one of my favorite musician interviews ever) and have been enjoying it every since. The Sound Podcast is great asset to our scene!

Dave Ruch ,

Great interviewer

Ira is very well researched as an interviewer and asks great questions that get his guests thinking and talking in new ways about what they do. Highly recommended!
