Great Canadian Musician: Dallas Green

| June 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

Dallas Green’s melodic acoustic rock and soulful vocals are what make him a superstar among his followers. Born in the southern Ontario city of St. Catharines (Canada’s biggest little city) he honed his art and recorded a demo with some “simple songs” that would later circulate the Internet and show up on some of his albums.

He has collaborated with great artists such as the Tragically Hip’s Gordon Downie, Ron Sexsmith and the Never-ending White Lights. But he is most well known for his time with the hardcore rock band Alexisonfire, and his folky acoustic band City and Colour.

Dallas is happily married to Canadian TV host Leah Miller and can be found year round touring his home country, Canada. This summer he is playing the Calgary Folk Festival, Osheaga in Montreal, and summer in the Park Festival in North Bay. If you can’t catch any of these shows you can listen online HERE
