Last year City and Colour went on a coast-to-coast tour of Canada, playing an acoustic, (mostly) solo tour in an intimate theater environment. The sold-out An Evening with CITY AND COLOUR – Solo tour saw Dallas Green strip-down and recreate 20 songs for a new live album “Guide Me Back Home“. Each song was recorded on a different night, in a different town. Taylor talked to Dallas, and went through the first six songs track-by-track.

“It’s more than just a live record to me. It is my love letter to Canada.”
