The Tallest Man On Earth - Band HistoryThe Tallest Man On Earth is a stage name for Kristian Matsson, who hails from Dalarna, Sweden. Matsson made his debut with the The Tallest Man On Earth EP in 2006, but it was not until 2008 that he began to gain attention. What happened that year? Well, he released his debut full-length Shallow Grave to high praise from critics. Even Pitchfork, the indie webzine infamous for being harsh, gave the album an approving 8.3 rating. Later that year, Matsson toured with folk hero Bon Iver and electrified crowds with his music. From there, his popularity began to multiply exponentially. In 2010, he released The Wild Hunt, once again to almost unanimous praise from critics. The album peaked at number 180 on U.K. charts, but it was far more successful than the numbers let on. By this time, Matsson had already secured a loyal - and adoring - following. As he continues to write, record and tour, his momentum continues to climb. After all, he holds the potential to go down as one of the great folk artists of this generation.
The Tallest Man On Earth - The MusicMatsson plays a style of folk music that might make first-time listeners think they are listening to Bob Dylan performing contemporary folk songs. Indeed, Matsson pairs a vocal style uncannily similar to Dylan with intricate acoustic strumming and finger-picking to produce a beautiful and roots-y style. Lyrically, Matsson sings about life and loss but codes it in elegant poetic language. Make sure to get your The Tallest Man On Earth tickets early, as they are prone to sell out.
