THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH
Australian Tour 2016 Nov / Dec 2016
Swedish songwriter Kristian Matsson towers above his contemporaries as one of today’s most humbling and evocative songwriters. Known to the world as THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH, he takes the modest folk tradition of Dylan and Guthrie as groundwork and builds upon it an intricate, personal mythology: dense stories gleaned from history, narrative and lived experience.
Back in Australia for the first time since 2013 Matsson returns with a stunning five-piece band, as seen on international festival stages such as Roskilde and the Justin Vernon curated Eaux Claires, offering audiences a richer and more resonant side of Matsson’s songcraft than they’ve ever witnessed before.
Shouldering universal acclaim from his 2015 album Dark Bird Is Home, The Tallest Man On Earth promises to make his presence felt through revellers’ every hair and fibre when he brings his soul-searching live show to our soil this December.
