The Tallest Man On Earth

Sense of Place: Stockholm -The Tallest Man On Earth With Full Band Performances
Today we have a lengthy conversation with The Tallest Man on Earth, the stage name for the Swedish artist Kristian Mattson as our Sense of Place visit to Stockholm continues. Kristian started making folk inspired music on his own in 2006, recording by himself and most important giving charismatic one man concert performances. For the first time he has added instruments and other players on his new album Dark Bird Is Home expanding the sonic possibilities. On stage at World Cafe Live he has a crew of friends with him and luckily it loses little of the intimacy of his solo performances.
