WATCH // The Tallest Man On Earth Daytime Debut On CBS This Morning

“In his sold-out concert at the Beacon Theater on Wednesday, he used every inch of his long guitar cord to roam the stage: darting around, crouching, stretching, hip-twitching, perching briefly and jittering away, but always ending up back at the microphone when he had more words to sing. Which was often, because for all his hyperactivity Mr. Matsson is a guitar-slinger rooted in folk, and his songs are troubadour ballads at heart, carrying knotty, imagistic verses. . . And while his melodies could often be ballads, his guitar playing offers them no repose: It’s quick strumming or even faster fingerpicking, always pushing.”

— The New York Times

“’Dark Bird’ began with Matsson playing and singing alone and built to a rousing conclusion that brought a crowd who had listened in rapt attention all night to its feet, shouting approval. It was a fitting summary of one Man’s evolving musical journey.” — Washington Post

The Tallest Man on Earth’s North American tour in support of Dark Bird Is Home concluded with a run of vibrant sold out performances at Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Theatre and New York’s Beacon Theatre and Music Hall of Williamsburg, plus a daytime television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday. This past Saturday to early risers across the globe, Kristian Matsson and his five-piece band performed Dark Bird Is Home single, “Sagres,” and album opener “Fields of Our Home,” plus “Like The Wheel,” a favorite from 2010’s Sometimes the Blues Is Just A Passing Bird, for a web-exclusive. Following last month’s late night television debut on Conan, this was a wonderful way to end The Tallest Man’s first-ever full band tour, and it was clearly evident to the band and sold out rooms, this is merely the beginning of great things to come in support of this new record.

The Tallest Man On Earth’s Dark Bird Is Home is out now on Dead Oceans. The next North American run includes performances at Forecastle, Eaux Claires Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, and MusicfestNW. All tour dates are below.
