Behind the name The Tallest Man on Earth is Kristian Matsson (born April 30th, 1983 in Dalarna, Sweden). He plays guitar, banjo and piano and has released three well received full length albums, the first entitled Shallow Grave and the second entitled The Wild Hunt. His most recent album, There’s No Leaving Now, was released during June of 2012 via Dead Oceans. Adding to his output are two EPs: the self-titled 5-track on the Swedish label Gravitation, as well as a second 5-track EP entitled Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird, also released on Dead Oceans.

Matsson is known for his very charismatic raw voice and lyrical style. He is often compared to Bob Dylan, who shares these qualities--Matsson has regularly confirmed the influence of Dylan as well as other American folk pillars in interviews.

He is married to fellow Swedish singer-songwriter Amanda Bergman, who performs under the name of Idiot Wind. The couple have toured extensively together, often performing songs together on stage. He has also toured with Bon Iver. He was formerly the front man in Montezumas. « hide
