City and Colour

City and Colour might just be my new favourite acoustic artist.  I was recommended them by Chizm and picked up two albums — Live and Sometimes.

City and Colour is an acoustic side-project fronted by Dallas Green, rhythm guitarist and singer for the Canadian post-hardcore band Alexisonfire. The current line-up also consists of Spencer Burton, Daniel Tavis Romano and Matt Sullivan.

Its clarity, brilliance and rich sound of the acoustic guitars you’ll notice only before being completely drawn into Green’s delicate yet powerful vocal tones.

The songs feature light string work that seal a holistic sound full of colour and emotion.

Check them out on Last.fm for videos and samples.

My favourite tracks at this stage: Coming Home, In The Water I Am Beautiful,
