The Tallest Man On Earth

Playing spare but tuneful indie folk enlivened by his sometimes craggy, always passionate vocals and poetic lyrics, the Tallest Man on Earth is the stage name of Swedish singer and songwriter Kristian Matsson. Born in Dalarna, Sweden in 1983, Matsson first broke into music as a member of the group Montezumas, but in 2006, influenced by rootsy Swedish artists such as Thomas Denver Jonsson and Homesick Hank, he struck out on his own as the Tallest Man on Earth, releasing a self-titled five-song EP of elemental acoustic songs with just his guitar for accompaniment on the Swedish label Gravitation. The EP and the follow-up single, "Pistol Dreams," received positive reviews, and in 2008, Matsson released his first album as the Tallest Man on Earth, Shallow Grave, which was released in the United States by the boutique indie label Mexican Summer. Matsson toured extensively in support of Shallow Grave, including several dates opening for Bon Iver and John Vanderslice, and in 2010 he released his second album, The Wild Hunt, which was his first project for Dead Oceans Records. Before the year was out, a five-song TMOE EP appeared, Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird, which marked Matsson's first recordings with an electric guitar. In 2012, he released There's No Leaving Now, which found him adding a few more layers to the album's production, and 2015's Dark Bird Is Home proved to be his most ambitious project to date, incorporating a full band on several cuts as well as electronic loops, horns, backing vocalists, and a spacious, atmospheric studio sound. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

He is one of my favorite artist but I am not sure about his new single 'Sagres'. It seems a bit too over produced to me. I like it better when it is just him and a guitar. Excited to hear what the rest of the new album sounds like though.

The lyrics are great. You just need to listen close and try to figure out what he is really trying to say. The meaning is often beneath the words and one listen will not allow you to fully understand them.

He would be the next Dylan if only he could write lyrics. While he has some great lines, most of the songs make no sense. He needs a writing partner. Many musicians do. His other skills are great.

His guitar skills are certainly not average, he does a helluva good job finger picking.

I haven't found a song of his that I can't listen to. "On every page" on his latest album is probably my favorite. But I can't I find a song of his that I couldn't listen to over and over again. Great artist through and through... he definatley deserves more publicity.
