City And Colour
Dallas Green is an eminent figure in the Canadian music scene. Hardcore fans have already known him for 20 years from Alexisonfire. Since 2005 he’s been combining that successful band with City and Colour, a parallel project for his introspective material, influenced by Bon Iver and Bright Eyes. The name comes from Dallas (City) and Green (Colour). His first album ‘Sometimes’ (2005) won the Juno – the top Canadian music award – for best alternative album. He was joined on ‘Bring Me Your Love’ (2008) by the late Gordon Downie of The Tragically Hip. Workhorse Green has also prepared new material for You+Me, his surprising collaboration with P!NK. The American singer also took City and Colour along on a European tour in 2010 as support.
