Singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson probably isn't the tallest man on earth right now, but that doesn't stop his unique blend of folk and indie styles from towering above others in the genre. Hailing from Dalarna in Sweden, Matsson developed an appreciation of popular musical styles in North America from an early age. After playing in some indie bands, he struck out on his own as The Tallest Man on Earth. His music has produced numerous popular singles that have made it on various charts, and many critics liken him to folk music icon Bob Dylan.
After falling in love with various North American folk music sounds in his early years, Matsson started writing his own music and lyrics. Though he wasn't discovered as a solo act right away, The Tallest Man on Earth played with folk bands such as Montezumas while he perfected his craft. In 2006, he managed to embark on a solo effort after branding himself as The Tallest Man on Earth. To date, Kristian has released five albums and two extended plays. Instead of being studio albums the way many artists release their work, The Tallest Man on Earth normally records tracks in his own home, including adding the guitar and vocals himself.
