The Tallest Man on Earth: US Tour
My favourite Swedish folk artist Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth (he is actually rather short...and slightly sarcastic) is currently touring the US. His third studio album 'There's No Leaving Now' came out in June last year and is yet another musical masterpiece from this native of the north.
I was lucky enough to see him play at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London a couple of years ago, just after he released 'The Wild Hunt'. His stage presence as one little man with a guitar, alone on stage playing to an audience of 2,000, was nothing short of amazing. He not only managed to fill the room with his beautiful music, but moved most people to tears, had everyone singing along and clapping during his hit 'King of Spain', and managed to captivate the crowd enough to have complete silence in between songs as he told his strange tales.
If you have the chance, this is one artist you do not want to miss seeing live. Have a look at his website for tour dates and details.
