The Tallest Man on Earth

I’ve been listening a lot to this excellent singer/songwriter the last few days; The Tallest Man on Earth (real name Kristian Mattsson) and I’m very impressed by his lyrics and way of crafting¬†irresistible¬†melodies. Some people might find his voice too “Dylanesque” but it does grow on you and makes the acoustic guitar, as basically the only instrumentation used, feel more raw and real than what a Joan Baez voice could ever make it.

If you like acoustic guitar and appreciate really good songwriting, then I think you should check him out. Best idea is to just search The Tallest Man on Earth on Youtube because I think he’s even better live than in the recorded versions. There are loads of great live videos online so you sure have a treat ahead of you!

Here are some performances I like myself:

The Tallest Man on Earth on NPR Tiny Desk Concerts
The Tallest Man on Earth on Shoot The Player
The Tallest Man on Earth Live at Paste
The Tallest Man on Earth Live at Western Washington University
