Spreading the Good – City and Colour

December 17, 2010

“You need not to climb mountaintops,
You need not to cross the sea,
You need not to find a cure for everything that makes you weak.
You need not to reach for the stars when life becomes so dark,
And when the wind does blow against the grain,
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.”

City and Colour is one of my favorite discoveries of 2010. He reminds me of a folkier (and living) Jeff Buckley, which is pretty much the highest compliment I can pay a singer. I can always ferret out a Jeff Buckley influence.  With some googling, I found an interview with the guy behind City and Colour, Dallas Green (get it? City? Colour?), in which he states that his favorite singer of all time is, in fact, Jeff.

The song that started my C&C love affair (which is a great one to belt along in the car to):
