Tallest Man on Earth Biography:

Tallest Man on Earth is the stage name of Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson. Still in his 20s, Matsson is also known for playing as part of the Montezumas.

He released his self-titled debut EP in 2007, followed one year later by the full-length Shallow Grave. This second disc garnered considerable praise from the American indie press, scoring Matsson opening slots with great singer-songwriters like John Vanderslice and Bon Iver. Soon after, he inked a deal with Dead Oceans Records (whose roster also includes Vanderslice, along with several other gifted indie folk artists).

Despite his moniker, Matsson stands at approximately 5'5". Indeed, The Washington Post described him as "less a towering titan than an ex-jockey on his way to audition for Grease."

Matsson frequently tours, and for a full updated list of his tour dates, you can check out the Tallest Man on Earth on MySpace.
