City and Colour (aka Dallas Green) delivered another folk-rock gem full of soft lilting vocals and delicate guitar playing with his 2013 release The Hurry and the Harm. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart and featured the heartbreaking single “Thirst” as well as the remorseful “The Lonely Life.” The Hurry and the Harm is the follow-up to 2011’s Little Hell, another No. 1 debut on the Canadian Albums Chart. His other releases include Sometimes (2005) and Bring Me Your Love (2008). Green has racked up a number of accolades over the years, including three Juno Awards: Alternative Album of the Year for Sometimes and Songwriter of the Year in both 2009 and 2012. Fans who only know Green’s work as City and Colour may be shocked to learn he was once a member of the aggressive post-hardcore outfit Alexisonfire. Green served as vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for the band before deciding to leave in 2010. The fact that Green was able to go from hard-hitting rock to introspective folk speaks to his tremendous talents as a musician, songwriter, and performer. On tour, ticket buyers have been praising Green’s voice and the diverse live sets which range from quieter acoustic songs to high-energy, rock-out moments with his backing band.
