Book City and Colour
City and Colour is the alias used by the singer and songwriter Dallas Green. This alias is derived from his first name, Dallas – which is a city and his last name Green – which is a colour. He opted to use the alias as he was not comfortable with using his own name on the album. Before he embarked on his solo career, Dallas was the guitarist and vocalist of the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire which was based in Ontario.
His tracks have a melodic acoustic and folk sound. He usually collaborates with different indie rock musicians from Canada, like Daniel Romano and Spencer Burton from the band “Attack in Black”.
Initially Dallas Green released his songs by making them available for download online in 2004. He later rewrote several of those tracks and compiled his debut album titled “Sometimes” and released it in 2005. The album was well received.
Green released his second album titled “Bring Me Your Love” after a gap of four years in 2008. This album introduced instruments which were not used on his earlier tracks and had a folk – influenced sound.
