"Be yourself,” the words of his father, Matisyahu uttered this as the best piece of advice that he ever received. When you truly understand Matisyahu’s story, truly being himself is very apparent, and his key to success. “Develop your thing,” he stated as his advice to young musicians, it really goes to the heart of this podcast and “creating life on your own terms.” Often we are worried about the results or the blowback, not the art. Life itself is a canvas, and Matisyahu wants you to paint it your own way."
