Kristian Matsson, known as The Tallest Man on Earth, has sold out two shows at the Lincoln Theatre.
The Tallest Man on Earth is touring in support of his fourth album, Dark Bird is Home. After DC, he plays two shows in New York before continuing the tour in Europe through October. If you want to see him in the US, you should look for resale tickets to tonight’s show.
The new tour includes a full band for the first time. Now he can add new instruments to his repertoire, including the French horn, keyboard and viola.
Some have likened his vocal style to Bob Dylan, and I can hear the similarities after a listening to a number of songs off his latest album.
This will be my first live exposure to The Tallest Man on Earth, and look forward to hearing how he sounds in a live setting.
The title track, “Dark Bird is Home” is a melancholy affair about heartbreak, but with hope on the horizon.
