Music Monday Feb 27: Dallas Green

There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

CBC MUSIC, Central · Mornings with CBC Music

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it. Maybe you will find a new favorite.

Dallas Michael John Albert Green is a Canadian musician, singer, songwriter and record producer who records under the name City and Colour. He is also known for his contributions as a singer, rhythm guitarist and songwriter for the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire.

And just to show you how much musicians can change, here is Dallas Green in his first band, Alexisonfire.

Should I give a warning? Hmm. Let’s just say, it’s not … everyone’s … cup of tea. Is that vague enough?

And in case you enjoyed the previous City and Colour songs, Dallas isn’t the screamer, that would be George Pettit.

Oh and one more thing, this is one of their, how do I say … gentler songs?

Your choice. The red pill or the blue.

I sayd I was going to do this, but I keep forgetting: Here is another Music Monday to check out.


Reminder: Book three is out on April 17, so …

  1. Didn’t know he was in Alexis on fire but then again that was my daughters kind of music. I heard him at a festival a few years back doing Country music, he’s very versatile!
