Kristian Matsson is a singer-songwriter from Dalarna, Sweden who performs under the stage name of The Tallest Man on Earth. Over the past decade, Matsson has released 4 critically acclaimed full length albums and headlined tours that have brought him to some of the most prestigious stages in the world.
Recently, he has teamed up with the classical sextet, yMusic, in a collaborative project that led to the creation of The Tallest Man On Earth with yMusic EP, to be released on July 21, 2017. The EP reimagines some of Matsson’s established repertoire through yMusic’s unique lens with entirely new arrangements by CJ Camerieri and Rob Moose. The two groups will come together in a special engagement at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn on September 20 and 21, 2017 performing material from the EP, selections from yMusic’s album, “First,” and new, unreleased music from The Tallest Man On Earth.
