With recent Juno nominations, You+Me, the folk duo consisting of St. Catharines' Dallas Green (aka City and Colour) and Alecia Moore (better known as the international pop superstar P!nk) are back in the spotlight. Their debut album Rose Ave (released through RCA) is surprisingly stripped down and organic.
The way their voices sound wonderful together, you'd think they have been performing for years. Each song is a truly duet as Dallas and Alecia trade vocals on and off within each tune. When they harmonize, it's pure magic. The sparse instrumentation adds to the raw atmosphere of the project.
It can sometimes be a little jarring when artists try out new sounds but both P!nk and City and Colour prove that they have the chops to go bare bones and excel. Hopefully, they'll have more for us in the future.
This CD is available at many physical and online shops. It can also be downloaded through iTunes.
