The Tallest Man on Earth
It is impossible to discuss the music of acclaimed Swedish folk troubadour The Tallest Man on Earth (aka. Kristian Matsson) without acknowledging Bob Dylan. The seeming effortlessness, the melodic sensibility and the deft lyricism all recall Dylan's early years. But when you witness The Tallest Man on Earth perform live you are watching a man possessed. The energy pours out with every word. Full of intensity and raw emotion, he paces the stage, bringing the audience into the palm of his hand, completely lost in his songs.
With urgent strums and subtle hooks, sweet melodies and playful lyricism, this isn't just another folk act; this is acoustic rock 'n' roll from a man with a story to tell.
