City and Colour (1 Albums, 0 Tracks)
- Dallas Green
City and Colour is Dallas Green. With a poignant vocal styling and lyrics that speak of impulse and introspection, Green affects his audience by offering his own personal testimony.
The newest release ( Feb 12,2008) titled BRING ME YOUR LOVE, is available now.
City and Colour originated when Green -- whose Platinum-selling band Alexisonfire won a 2005 Juno Award for New Group of the Year -- released a limited edition EP of songs performed on solo acoustic guitar. Wildly circulated on the Internet, the release caused such an overwhelming underground buzz that fans, as far away as Europe and Australia, were emailing the Alexisonfire site asking how to obtain copies.
Taking it all in stride, Green remained sincere, and affable, debuting his full-length album entitled "Sometimes" under his solo moniker City and Colour in November 2005. A culmination of music that Green has been writing for over a decade, the album achieved Platinum certification in 2006, surpassing any expectations he had. Critically acclaimed solo performances, a special appearance at Burton Cumming's Songwriter's Circle during the 2005 Junos (cited by Media as a highlight of the Junos) and a performance at the 2006 MuchMusic Video Awards, where Green won "PEOPLE'S CHOICE FAVOURITE CANADIAN ARTIST" were just icing on the cake.
City and Colour's latest creation entitled "City and Colour Live" brings fans front row and center to experience some of the most memorable moments from sold out tours across the nation. From Vancouver to Halifax, "City and Colour Live" features 13 heart-wrenching live tracks captured on both CD and DVD with 7 bonus tracks combined, a special acoustic performance of Alexisonfire's "Happiness by the Kilowatt", and a limited edition release contained a USB drive featuring highlight footage.
Green's melodically driven musical lyricism has earned City and Colour Juno 2007 nominations for Alternative Album of The Year and Jack Richardson Producer of the Year for "Save Your Scissors". City and Colour and Alexisonfire perform on The 2007 JUNO Awards, April 1 on CTV. Dallas took home the Juno for "Alternative Album of The Year", for sometimes.
