You+Me is a Canadian-American folk music duo consisting of singers and songwriters Dallas Green, better known as City and Colour, and Alecia Moore, better known as Pink (or P!nk).[2][3][4] Their debut album, entitled Rose Ave., was released on October 14, 2014, by RCA Records. The first promotional single from the album, "You and Me", premiered with a lyric video on their Vevo channel on September 8, 2014.[5]

History[edit]

Background[edit]

Moore and Green met through mutual friends several years prior to their collaboration in 2014,[6] the first time they sang together Green had asked Moore to sing with him at one of his shows.[7] They remained friends and Green opened several shows for Moore in the U.K.[8] Moore had considered singing acoustic ballads, and as friends the two had considered collaborating for several years; in March 2014, their schedules allowed them to get together and compose original songs.[9] They had written musical nuggets in advance, and their debut album Rose Ave. took shape within a week.[8][9] The artists attributed their quick progress to the freedom from usual production pressures and the joy of making music together,[9][10] the name of the duo, You+Me, is based on the two friends wanting to sing together.[9]

Green recalls how the collaboration came about: "Alecia and I had talked about (working together) for a long time — not about making a record, but the idea of singing together and trying to write a song. (...) When we had the time to do it, that really lit a fire of creativity because it was something different. The idea of collaborating with a female voice and a different writer was what I needed, I guess, to create a bunch of new songs."[11]

Rose Ave.[edit]

The duo's debut album Rose Ave. was released on October 14, 2014. The work was initiated and produced by Moore and Green, they had considered releasing the music independently; however, in order to reach a large audience and for legal concerns the album was released through Moore's label RCA Records.[12][13] The album charted at number one in Canada and at number four in the United States, the home countries of the artists.[14][15]
