Turns out The Tallest Man on Earth is probably only 5’10” or so. Who knew?
We had great balcony seats in the Somerville Theater where the opening band (S. Carey) kicked off the evening. We were impressed.
I’ve been pretty addicted to a couple of The Tallest Man on Earth albums lately, so we were pleasantly surprised that he was even better live. The guy sounds sort of like a bleating goat (we affectionately call him “goat man”), but I suppose I’ve always had a soft spot for artists with unique, raw voices.
It won’t be nearly as great seeing him live, but NPR has a great acoustic video clip below that’ll give you a taste for his unique Dylanesque style.
