Sasquatch Watch: The Tallest Man on Earth

May 20, 2010

I actually checked out this Swedish solo performer on a whim after hearing rave reviews about a show of his in LA. It was an intimate setting, perfect for a singer/songwriter Kristian Mattson. Sadly Sasquatch won’t offer the same setting, but something tells me it won’t matter. Just seeing this talented musician live will be treat enough.

You’d think we’d get sick of the whole folk thing. I mean how long has the guitar been around? But every once in awhile you get an incredible performer like Kristian Mattson and you realize just how powerful the medium can be. A haunting gravely voice and a simultaneous strum/pick style are his trade marks. I’ve only ever heard his first album, which rocked my world. He’s since released a new album in 2010 titled “The Wild Hunt”. I’ve only heard bits and pieces, but it sounds like another masterpiece, and shows evidence of growth in this talented musician.
