If you’re looking for a club banger, this isn’t it. In fact this is a pretty big step outside of the box from a lot of the material that gets posted here at P&P. You may love it, you may hate it, but it’s fantastic music and it needs to be shared. We all have a particular artist or song that we gravitate to during those difficult times and low points in our lives. For me that artist is Dallas Green, the signer/songwriter and guitarist more widely known as City and Colour.
I was first introduced to City and Colour in 2007, shortly after moving to Chicago. The transition was difficult. Adjusting to a much larger city than home was a challenge, one that took me almost two years to fully overcome. During that period I spent a lot of time inside my own headphones trying to find something or someone I could relate to. One of the people that kept me comfortable and confident was Dallas Green. Seeing as how I may never get the opportunity to properly thank him in person, I wanted to show my appreciation the next best way I knew how… by sharing his music.
City and Colour’s third album Little Hell will be available June 7th, 2011. You can pre-order it on iTunes, or here. For those of you in Chicago, catch Dallas live on stage at this year’s Lollapalooza.
