City And Colour

Singer, songwriter, and hardcore multi-instrumentalist Dallas Green, better known as City and Colour, swung by Rdio Sessions during SXSW for an intense and intimate performance. As a special treat for die-hard fans on Rdio, City and Colour performed the song "Of Space And Time" from his forthcoming album The Hurry and the Harm, which is set to release on June 4. Luckily, we captured the Rdio Session so you, too, can enjoy his amazing show and a preview of the new album all in one listen.

Rdio Sessions is an ongoing series of unique, recorded performances with hand-picked artists on the rise. The SXSW edition of Rdio Sessions was recorded at The Driskill during SXSW by the engineers from Sound Stage.

Listen to Passenger’s Exclusive Rdio Sessions


When folk singer-songwriter Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) came to our office back in September to perform live in his very own exclusive Rdio Sessions, he was so witty and charming that he left a trail of hearts in his wake — a trait likely honed while busking far away from home after the transition of Passenger from a group to a solo act.

Fortunately, we captured the dreaminess for your musical pleasure. Check out Passenger’s Rdio Sessions, a five-song set that includes the hit “Let Her Go.”
