More new music for you guys, well I say new,
you lot might have heard of him before,
I found Dallas Green last summer, and downloaded his third album
The band is called 'City in Colour' it's the recording alis for Juno award winning Canadian sing songwriter, Dallas Green, who was the guitarist and vocalist of the post hardcore band 'Alexisonfire'.He plays melodic acoustic and folk music, & is often accompanied by a roatating number of Canadian indie rock musicians, such as Daniel Romano and Spencer Burtin of 'Attack in Black'
The name 'City in Colour' comes from his own name:
Dallas (a city) and Green (a colour),
that's quite a cool way of naming a band don't ya think?
He said that he has been writing material since he was around the age of 14. Regarding the songs on his first album, 'Sometimes' Green said that he had been also writing material for when he was 16, and finishing writing the songs in 2005.
He has released 3 albums,
'Sometimes' (2005-2007) - Bring Me Your Love (2008-2009) - Little Hell (2010)
Green began releasing City and Colour songs on the Internet for fans to download, Eventually, compiling & re-writing several of these songs to make his first album, This was released on November 1st 2005, and had good reviews, discribed by one as 'Dynamically Gentle & Vulnerable'
Bring me your Love, was released on February 12th 2008 and features a whole array of instruments not used on his previous recordings, (such as harmonica, banjo, drums & lap steel) thus giving it a more folk influenced sound.
Little Hell is the third album & was released in June 7th 2011,
On May 31st 2011, a week before the release, the album was streamed for free through the websites of MTV and MuchMusic for Canadian residents.
The Album debuted at No1 on the Canadian Album charts,
selling over 20,000 copies in the first week.
This album is a must, I love it

Enjoy Guys ^_^
