City and Colour is the acoustic, solo side-project of Alexisonfire lead singer Dallas Green. Green has won Juno’s (Canadian Grammy’s) for for Alternative Album of the Year (2007), Songwriter of the Year (2009), and had the distinction of hosting the 2010 Juno Songwriter’s Circle. Playing guitar since age eight and crafting songs since his teenage years, Green has always known he wanted to write music and sing: mostly for himself, to find peace and clarity amongst the chaos. He thinks it’s kismet that others happen to like to listen. “At the end of the day, when I write a song, it has to make me happy,” he says. “I have to want to sing it again. And then the hope after that is that somebody else will like it.” Get your tickets before it’s too late, it is very likely to sell out!
