First Matisyahu shaved his beard, worrying fans that he’d lost his way; then he started to bring it back. Now the Jewish reggae star appears clean-shaven again, as the above teaser for his new song “Sunshine” shows.
The VideoJew had this reaction:
Sporting frosted tips, multiple scarves, skinny jeans and no kippah (headcovering), the new baby-faced Matisyahu seems to resemble a love-child between an L.A. hipster and a youth group advisor.
Unchanged is his voice and musical style, which still reminds us why we love him today.

The “new” Matisyahu released a preview of his upcoming music video for the new song Sunshine this morning. Sporting [what appears to be] frosted tips, multiple scarves, skinny jeans and no kippah (headcovering), the new baby-faced Matisyahu looks like a love-child between an L.A. hipster and a youth group advisor.
But image isn’t everything. Unchanged is his voice and musical style, which still reminds us why we love him today. What do you think of the new appearance?

A recreation? A mashup of old video and new audio? Whatever, it’s great!
For more on Ezekiel’s vision of the dry bones:
Dry Bones cartoons and the Dry Bones Project are called Dry Bones because of the 2600 years-old writings of the Biblical Prophet Ezekiel.
Like a police sketch artist trying to portray what a witness is describing, the cartoonist has done his best to draw what Ezekiel claimed to have seen.
This “Graphic Novel” is called: Listening to Ezekiel

Ms. Lane Truesdale is on vocals and shimmy in this 1943 “soundie,” an early video jukebox format.
The title comes from a running joke on radio based on the name of violinist Yehudi Menuhin.
This video is now in the public domain.
Careful viewers will notice the video is reversed right-to-left, as the original format required a mirror for projection.
