TOUR ANNOUNCE // The Tallest Man On Earth Extends Summer Tour, Records WFUV Performance Session At Electric Lady Studios


“You play directly to one person,” he laughs. “Because at most shows there’s a couple there – one who’s a really big fan and one who’s been dragged along and is bored. So I focus on the one that’s bored and try to make them smile or laugh. I look at them for a while. Then I don’t look at them. Then I know there’s a part coming up where I can make eye contact. It’s inspiring to try to connect to people in a different way to how we do normally.”
The Guardian

After playing sold out shows at both Music Hall of Williamsburg and The Beacon Theater in New York, The Tallest Man On Earth (aka Sweden’s Kristian Matsson) recorded an intimate set at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in lower Manhattan for WFUV. The group performed several songs including “Sagres” off of Dark Bird Is Home and “Like The Wheel” from Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird, plus a special first-time performance of “If I Could Only Fly,” a song originally written by Blaze Foley and made famous by Merle Haggard. Coming off of television appearances on Conan and CBS This Morning: Saturday, The Tallest Man’s WFUV performance is yet another captivating moment on a tour that will span the country.

The Tallest Man On Earth 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.

WATCH // Strand of Oaks Shares Summer Tour Dates, Watch Session At Ace Hotel in New York City

Strand of Oaks : 5 at 5 : Ace Hotel New York from Ace Hotel on Vimeo.

Strand of Oaks wants to spend time with you this summer. Every one of you. Starting this month the band will make their way across the country in continued support of last year’s highly-acclaimed, HEAL. Strand of Oaks’ already exhilirating live show will add decibels in the form of a guitar helmed by eastcoaster (and new band member) Carter Tanton. The band’s spring tour resumes in Chattanooga, TN on April 16 with a handful of dates in support of Jason Isbell. Notable festival stops on their route include Middle of the Map, Hangout, Sasquatch, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Lollapallooza, Osheaga, and Outside Lands – so almost all of ’em. Strand of Oaks will also play support to Alabama Shakes and Ryan Adams.

Since we last spoke, frontman Tim Showalter coaxed some truth from Father John Misty’s I Love You, Honeybear for The Talkhouse and paid a visit to NYC’s Ace Hotel for their 5 at 5 series. Catch a glimpse of his inner Viking on the road, full list of dates below.
