Kristian Matsson (born April 30, 1983) is a singer-songwriter from Dalarna, Sweden. Since 2006, he has released three full-length albums and two EPs. He performs under the moniker The Tallest Man on Earth.

He is known for recording and producing his own records in whichever home he is currently living and states that the connection between his voice and guitar is so strong, he rarely records them as separately tracked performances. He is also known both by critics and his fans for his charismatic stage presence. Matsson is married to fellow Swedish singer-songwriter Amanda Bergman, who performs under the moniker Idiot Wind. The couple have toured extensively together, often performing songs together on stage. He has toured with Bon Iver. Matsson also fronted the band Montezumas.

Critics have compared The Tallest Man on Earth to Bob Dylan both in terms of songwriting ability and vocal style. When asked about his lyrical style, The Tallest Man on Earth explains that he began listening to Bob Dylan at fifteen, and upon hearing Dylan’s cover material, he “tried to figure out where those songs came from” and became slowly exposed to early American folk, such as Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. But he is careful to qualify this, saying “I don’t consider my work to be a part of any tradition. This is how I play. This is how I write songs”.

With regards to his guitar technique, Matsson uses a variety of open tunings, and to a lesser degree standard tuning. He had classical guitar training in his youth, but says he “never really focuses on it” and that by the end of high school he “got bored playing guitar because it was like math”, until he then discovered open tunings while listening to Nick Drake in his early twenties. He was drawn to this style of playing because it allowed him to focus on singing while still performing intricate music.

Lyrics:
(Verse)
When you just telling what I cannot say
When you just shine upon the ghost on my way
I dropped the game I’m throwing arsenal
There must be marks on every tree from the past
To our home

(Verse)
Only the main fly used to tell me so
Now it is obvious drop your way just let go
Now men at antiques turns in all the lights
And when I ever have to feel what does blades were about

(Chorus)
And then that sound of sighing ,that empty house
And all the everloving bands in the line of your try
Some men forgoten and some others believe
What ever happened to the boars now a tale for the seas
When you know you’re already on
Like the grass with it to become
Again and free
It’s all we’ll ever be

(Verse)
I don’t remember where I learn to die
But I am humble for the rocks when I try
And somehow I am lured onto the waves
And I’m with you I feel the sun and the salt
On my face

(Chorus)
And then that sound of sighing ,that empty house
And all the everloving bands in the line of your try
Some men forgoten and some others believe
What ever happened to the boars now a tale for the seas
When you know you’re already on
Like the grass with it to become
Again and free
It’s all we’ll ever be

(Verse)
Tied motion of the rusty path
Just humming wiser I quit
Go to hell
I’ve been to the tower
But now I walk alone
There must be marks on every page
From the past to these songs

(Chorus)
And then that sound of sighing ,that empty house
And all the everloving bands in the line of your try
Some men forgoten and some others believe
What ever happened to the boars now a tale for the seas
When you know you’re already on
Like the grass with it to become
Again and free
It’s all we’ll ever be
