Dallas Green of City and Colour Collaborates with Geneviève Racette after Hearing Her Cover His Song

In 2019 Geneviève Racette covered (Dallas Green) City and Colour’s “Hello, I’m in Delaware” and posted to her Instagram profile. The two singer-songwriters connected from this post and an unlikely friendship was born; fan with artist.

“That message made me feel so good, it’s indescribable. Getting validation from one of my songwriting heroes was pretty cool.”

Dallas Green shared the cover version with his fans and then invited Racette to sing the song on stage with him at Osheaga, Quebec’s largest summer music festival. The two stayed in touch while Geneviève Racette started working on her record Satellite. She sent tracks to Dallas including the song “Someone.” Dallas asked if he could join her on this song. Of course, Racette said yes, and this duet of “Someone” was born.

This collaboration makes perfect sense. The songwriting style of Geneviève Racette is similar to Dallas Green. Ethereal guitars and slowly paced vocal lines that seem to drift in the air are hallmarks of City and Colour. Plus, the song is exploding with emotion. It’s the time of song that calls for introspection and has the power to change the mood of a room.

“Sometimes life throws feelings at you and they’re meant to act as signals. Personally, this was an alarm constantly ringing in my ears telling me my relationship had to end”
