City and Colour

Another side of the lead singer of Alexisonfire is shown through his solo work. The music he makes under the name City and Colour is completely different. As loud as Alexisonfire is is how quiet City and Colour is. There are no crunchy guitars or screaming vocals. It is all about melancholic lyrics and acoustic instruments. Green also shows that he is quite an accomplished songwriter. The songs on this album are all simple yet beautiful. It also has the added touches of a backup singers and musicians which help to flesh out the sound on certain songs. There is definitely a strong folk feel about many of the songs with the use of the harmonica and banjo. With two albums now being released in this side project and both of them being strong I hope he continues to record as City and Colour.
