I love when a song so stirs (haunts?) me that I’m compelled to play it over and over.
City and Colour is the solo moniker for Dallas Green, lead singer for Canadian band Alexisonfire. The song below, “Sleeping Sickness”, is off the solo effort Bring Me Your Love. I first heard it as background music in a venue, waiting for a live act to start, and I was so taken with the melody I had to go ask the sound guy who it was. I love the strong acoustic guitar, raw rhythm and passionate chorus. The whole record is worth a spin–great artistry.
