“Love Born from pain is the real thing,” is the central lyric and chorus to singer-songwriter Matisyahu’s newest single “Love Born”. Co-written and produced by Matisyahu’s long-time bass player and friend Stu Brooks, the song melds a strong roots-and-dub-Reggae feel with a lyrical narrative that weaves through moments of pain and despair to the strength of pushing through and seeing the love within the struggle.“‘Love Born’ is about accepting pain and learning to transform it. It’s the ability to look back at one’s history and bring close those moments of pain and confusion and work with them in the present to evolve with strength to one’s future,” explains Matisyahu, who takes this same approach on stage focusing on improvisation with his band every night. Life has no cushion, music has no net. This approach requires trust, patience, and a leap of faith that each player will listen to, and absorb what is happening around them, and be able to transform it into a collective whole.Take a listen to “Love Born”:For fans of Stu Brooks, catch him play an all-star Tribute to J Dilla at the second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive festival in Brooklyn, NY alongside Borahm Lee, Adam Deitch, Adam Smirnoff, Nate Edgar, and more, on October 22nd.

A deputy from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is now in custody for an incident that allegedly took place last weekend.According to the West Palm Beach Police Department, Jerald Alderman faces multiple counts of aggravated assault and using a firearm while under the influence, following a confrontation with three young black men sitting in a car in a downtown West Palm Beach parking lot around 3 a.m. last Saturday morning.The car’s driver, Lekraig Bens, told officers, “He got to my driver’s door and said you guys hit my Porsche.” Bens says he told Alderman that was not the case.In a video obtained by our news partner, CBS12, a man who appears to be Alderman can then be seen yelling profanities at the men before he orders them to leave the parking lot located near Banyan Boulevard and North Olive Avenue.Alderman is heard telling the men, “Get the (expletive) out of here. If I see you downtown here again tonight, guess what will happen?” One of the men asks him, “What’s going to happen,” to which Alderman responds, “What do you think will happen, (expletive)?”The video shows Alderman tapping his gun against the car’s window and flashing his sheriff’s badge before walking away. The deputy was off-duty when the incident took place.
