Dallas is probably one of my biggest song writing influences. His voice is so smooth and soothing and his songs are a mix of folk and pop.
This song, Grand Optimist is my favourite off the new album ‘Little Hell’ which was released last year. He took a different approach to writing this album using a full band instead of just himself and his guitar.
Some people weren’t a fan but I think change is good and an artist is allowed to experiment with different sounds. Personally I think it is the best work he has done and having the large bands gives the songs so much more dynamic range and texture.
Enjoy the amazing City & Colour.
