I came across an artist the other day named Dallas Green who has a solo project he calls City and Colour. The thing is, I have heard the voice before but could not pinpoint where… After a minute of research I was amazed to find out that Dallas Green is also the lead vocalist for the post-hardcore act Alexisonfire.
Crazy. I am so out of the loop.
I admit it. I am not hip to everything so you can imagine how I felt considering I am a fan of Alexisonfire…a fan that does not necessarily know all the band members by name.
It seems that all of these punk rock / hardcore artists are doing solo albums lately and it appears it might be the new “in” thing to do, but before I continue I need to state that Dallas Green has been doing his solo project for a few years now. Also “in” or not if an artist can pull off an amazing solo album, more power to them.
I have yet to check out the entire album called Bring Me Your Love as well as the rest of Dallas Green’s solo catalog. Funny thing is that I have seen this CD before on the shelf but didn’t even give it a chance. Looks like I was the one missing out. If you like meaningful folk rock material you should check out this CD like I intend to do so…
Here is a really neat video. Yes, I said neat.
