SHOW PREVIEW: I.M.P. presents City and Colour at Echostage
If you have not heard City and Colour before, you should
probably check him out. The formerly-broken-up-but-still-touring Alexisonfire
member started writing songs at a young age and is now currently working on his
fifth album. Dallas (the city) Green (the colour) is thankfully making a tour
around the United States. His will be performing at Echostage on December 11
and it would be a shame to miss him this coming season.
This folk music is catchy and the lyrics are extremely raw
in his acoustic sound. Dallas Green is lead vocalist, songwriter, acoustic
guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and pianist for his band. City and Colour has been
nominated for four MuchMusic video awards, won The People’s Choice Award for
favorite artist for “Save Your Scissors,” and been nominated for seven Juno
Awards, three of which he won. He has also performed on an episode of One Tree Hill, at the 2011 Juno Awards,
and at the opening of the Meridian Centre, St. Catharine’s hockey arena in
2014. He is set to release his new album, If
I Should Go Before You, in October of this year to kick off his tour. So,
if you like acoustic music, or even if you don’t, check him out and come see
him perform at Echostage in December!
