I have been wanting to write a review for some time now, but as we all know, sometimes work and the real world can get in the way. Nonetheless, I am writing to all of you now to let you know just how amazing the concert really was. Having already [...]
Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth has the kind of unique delivery that often gets him compared to some greats. There's a certain heatedness to his style that at times sounds like contempt, but if you're going to get almost-yelled at, at least his voice, lyrics and music are beautiful..

The Tallest Man on Earth showcased his genius on Later With Jools Holland a couple of weeks ago performing 'King of Spain' with that unmistakable dolorous charm and surely inspiring many a viewer to drop their cheesecake and gawp. I didn't realise, until today, that he had also performed 'Love is All' as a web exclusive earlier on and I must admit, the discovery was more satisfying than punching a fat person in the stomach. I posted a while back about how amazing Mattson is live so it's always good to be able to [...]

We've posted a few Jools Holland clips today but this one wasn't actually broadcasted and was performed to the studio audience, including the rest of the musicians that were stood around the studio waiting their turn.

Something humbling about TTMOE that I can never quite put my finger on.
