WHO: Dallas Green
WHAT: City and Colour
If you don’t know him, this is the best moment to follow the steps of Dallas Green, one of the most original and addictive voices in today’s music. Don’t let yourself be fooled by his carpet salesman face; his voice will make you fall in love with him and it is the perfect soundtrack for every season of the year.
The boy in question is Canadian and he is also known as one of the lead singers and guitarrists of the post-hardcore band Alexionfire. And although I have to admit I’m a big fan of Alexionfire, his project City and Colour surpasses all my expectations. Its all about folk, acoustic music and kindness; and this june 7th he will launch his third album called Little Hell. So you’re still on time to listen to his first efforts: Sometimes (2005) & Bring Me Your Love (2008).
I had the opportunity to listen Little Hell on a sneak peek just for insiders, and I confess that what I heard was completely unexpected, but I love it.
You have two songs already available online: “Northern Wind” & “Fragile Bird”.
