Dallas Green writes, records, and performs under his artistic pseudonym City and Colour — which literally stands for his own name: Dallas, a city, and Green, a colour. He was initially known as the frontman of the band Alexisonfire, which he joined in late 2001. In 2005, he began working on a solo project releasing City and Colour songs on the internet for fans to download. From there, he debuted his first full-length album, "Sometimes", a big breakthrough single and album which achieved platinum certification in 2006 and earned him Canada's prestigious Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year in 2007.
The following year, his second album, "Bring Me Your Love" had a limited release of 6,000 copies. Green also made it available on the internet, then the City and Colour website crashed the first day due to insistently high demand.
Spanning six studio albums released to date, City and Colour have collected these awards and certifications along the way — 3 JUNOs, including two Songwriter of the Year awards, plus 1 Triple Platinum, 2 Double Platinum, 1 Platinum, and 1 Gold certification in Canada. At par with these achievements, Green's work with Alexisonfire has been awarded Platinum certification for all four of Alexisonfire’s studio albums.
Yet Green acknowledges that these accomplishments are just but fruits of his labour, culled from deep inside. “I wrote a lot of dark songs and wrapped them in the most beautiful sounds we could find,” he explains.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to create. I had to write these songs in order to get out of my own head first. If someone can listen and relate to what I’m saying, my duty as a writer is fulfilled in the best way possible.”
