The Tallest Man on Earth

I had not heard about The Tallest Man on Earth until last Sunday.  Last night I went to see him play at the Highline Ballroom.  Not sure he is actually the tallest man on earth but he is unbelievably talented.  From the moment he started singing, the audience was so quiet that you could have heard a pin drop except for the music.  The first thing that came to mind was at what point of your life do you realize that you can sing like that? 

A Swedish artist, Niclas Stenholm, sounds like a melodic Bob Dylan.  He was almost as thrilled as the audience to be there last night.  He bowed at the end of his performance.  I loved that.  His performance live was so good that I even liked his music even more.  That voice makes the hair on your arm stand up on end.

      This was a bow like a classical musician. Different. Most people in hisarena just wave good-bye and don’t blow kisses.

        I have a thing for recorded music. They work for me just fine most of the time. A few days back I was watching Mark Zuckerberg’s keynote online and I remember thinking, given the option maybe I prefer watching him online. Cuts on all the travel time involved. And the video is pretty good. Gets all the same points across. 🙂
