If you type "The Tallest Man On Earth" into Google a number of pictures of Zhang Juncai will literally fill your screen. Coming in at 7 feet 11 inches he is impressive; however, lurking in his shadow you will also see Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man On Earth, who in turn is impressing us a lot more here at Inyourspeakers because, well, he is a folk musician, and he is good. Really good. In support of his sophomore album The Wild Hunt which is due out on April 13th, details of a coast to coast US tour, beginning in the middle of April straight through to the end of May, have been announced.

Currently, Kristian Matsson is getting set to pluck heart strings around Europe from February through March before setting off on what will surely be an exciting paddle across the Atlantic with his guitar; however, we are positive he will be in fact flying over, and his guitar will no doubt be safely enclosed in a case in order to avoid the overwhelming time restrictions that come with swimming the length of an ocean.
