Lady Lamb opened for The Tallest Man on Earth on Monday night at The Danforth Music Hall. What was surprising is that he didn’t have a band accompany her, it was just her and her guitar. She started her set with a song sung A Capella, nothing but her beautiful voice. It was amazing that her voice could fill up a room with out the assistance of any instruments. The room went completely silent as everyone was taken aback from the beauty of her voice. For the rest of her set, she played with her electric guitar. I really enjoyed her songs and her stage presence. She owned the stage with her indie rock vibe and didn't hold back her emotions. She was a pleasure to watch and listen to.
The Tallest Man on Earth was so incredible. He’s a jolly little man that truly loves what he does. He started his show with his band and played variations of some of this older songs which on the albums are played exclusively with an acoustic guitar. Throughout the show, he alternated between playing with his band and playing solo. I’m not sure which one I preferred, both styles showed different sides of his music. He danced around the stage for the majority of the show and was surprisingly very theatrical. I thought he would have been calm and collected, sitting on a chair, playing his guitar but was pleasantly surprised to find out that my assumptions were wrong.
My favourite song of the night was one of his brand new songs called “Time of the Blue”. It’s a very unembellished and classic song played with nothing but an acoustic guitar and the Tallest Man himself. It sounds like a more mature version of some of his earlier songs. It has that raw guitar and singing voice where you feel as if he singing directly to you. It is one of his more melancholy songs but never the less beautiful and even makes you want to cry a little inside (I had to keep myself composed during the song, not going to lie). Check out his new song here!
The room was silent as we listened to him strum his guitar and sing effortlessly. You could tell how comfortable he was being on stage, he’s definitely a pro at performing. He is definitely one of a kind and I would recommend that anyone who has an opportunity to see him live, take advantage and go see the Cutest Man on Earth.
