Dallas Green, aka City And Colour drops his latest offering Guide Me Back Home this coming Friday Oct 5th, it’s a collection of stripped back acoustic numbers played in intimate settings during his 2017 sold-out An Evening with City and Colour – Solo Canadian tour.

For anyone unfamiliar with Mr Dallas this would be the perfect introduction, with a sublime recording packed with beautiful, tranquil and emotive numbers all laid out for all to enjoy. Right from the off you are transported on an audible journey of first class song writing, in the split track ‘Forgive Me / Two Coins’ you get a taste of what’s to come, perfectly delivered and poised song writing that just envelopes you from start to finish. It’s a breathtaking album that pulls you in song-by-song, each one tugging further at your heartstrings and exposing your melancholy side for all to see.

You get all the subtle nuances from within the concert with Dallas talking between tracks that sets the tone to the evenings events, it all helps make you feel like you’re right there in the room. From the story of what inspired this tour through to his thoughts on social media and our addiction to it, you have Mr Dallas’ attention from start to finish.

Packed full with twenty audacious tracks you’ll not be feeling short changed by that fine recording, it truly is a beauty-awaiting discovery, so delve in and take it with both hands.
