Four years ago, Dallas Green, the singer-songwriter behind acts like City and Colour, Alexisonfire and You+Me, decided that he needed a break from music. Now he's back with a new City and Colour album called A Pill for Loneliness, which is nominated for the Juno for adult alternative album of the year. Green sat down with q's Tom Power at his record label in Toronto to discuss his Juno nomination, why he took a break, and how he's dealing with the recent loss of his friend and collaborator, Karl Bareham, to a tragic accident.
