He plays melodic acoustic and folk music and is often accompanied by a rotating number of Canadian indie rock musicians, such as Daniel Romano and Spencer Burton of Attack in Black.
Interestingly, Dallas came up with the name City and Colour by correlating his own name with his pseudo. His first name is Dallas which is where he got the “City” from and his last name is green which is where he got the name “Colour” from. Sounds like a no brainer….actually this guy is an absolute genius when it comes to music.
