Watch the Tallest Man on Earth Perform Two Tracks for WFUV

September 22, 2015


Tallest Man on Earth GretschBefore his latest tour to support latest album Dark Bird is Home, Kristian Mattson – a.k.a. the Tallest Man on Earth – was used to performing on stage by himself.

But lately, he’s been backed by a full band for his concerts, adding lush layers to his beautifully arranged songs.

That sound was on display during a shoot for WFUV in New York City’s legendary Electric Lady Studios. With his bandmates supporting him, Mattson donned a G6122-12 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman 12-String guitar and treated an intimate crowd to the Dark Bird single “Sagres” and a cover of “If I Could Only Fly,” which was written by Blaze Foley.

Watch Mattson in action below.
