Sometimes Dallas Green is the energetic, melodic singer/guitar player for post-hardcore band Alexisonfire, and other times he shows his mellow acoustic side. City & Colour has been Dallas Green's other project for some years, and for those of you who have missed out, now is the time to catch up.
City & Colour represents his first and last name (if you couldn't figure that out) and since premiering in 2005, he has gained both Alexisonfire fans and new ones. His lyrics are thought provoking, even quite emotional at times. There is something about his voice that literally has the effect of soothing your soul and also bringing a tear to your eye. Yes, Dallas Green undoubtedly has this effect.
Even though he has many adoring fans from all genres of the musical spectrum, he still feels somewhat underrated to me. He does not get as much credit as he truly deserves.
A few months ago, I was lucky enough to interview him for a small article in Substream Music Press. Throughout the brief conversation, it was hard not to respect the guy. His passion for music and love of song-writing really showed to me what a true artist is all about.
