The Tallest Man on Earth

Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, performing as The Tallest Man on Earth, has garnered comparisons to Bob Dylan for his songwriting and vocal style, but says “I don’t consider my work to be a part of any tradition. This is how I play. This is how I write songs.” He records and produces his music at home and is known for his charistmatic stage presence. NPR says of his most recent, introspective album I Love You. It’s a Fever Dream, written in the wake of a painful divorce, “Matsson seems to have figured out that the crests and valleys of our interiorities are just as beguiling as the vast expanses around us.”
