The Sadies' Dallas Good passes away

Sunday, February 20, 2022 – Dallas Good, guitarist for long-running Canadian country band The Sadies died on Thursday at 48.

Good formed the band, which combined country with rock, along with his brother Travis, Sean Dean and Mike Belitsky.

"It's with unfathomable sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dallas on Thursday, February 17th. Forty eight years old, he died of natural causes while we have no words for the shock we are all feeling. We join the rest our music community and fans in grief," the band posted on its Twitter feed.

The group formed in 1994 and debuted with "Precious Moments' in 1994. During their career, the band released albums with Asndre Williams, Neko Case, Jon Langford and John Doe.

The Sadies released six studio albums for Yep Roc Records. "Dallas was such a special individual who is in one of my favorite bands of all time," said Glenn Dicker, co-owner of Yep Roc Records. "We've lost a cornerstone of the label. The Sadies have always been the band to watch and hear out there for me. I am grateful to you, Dallas, for so many great shows, spine shaking music and good times. I'll never stop listening."

Last month, the band shared their latest single, "Message to Belial," produced by Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire.

"God Bless the Infidels" is even more traditional, with its mostly acoustic sound. This lesser-country-ness is because psychedelic rock is ...
CD review - Internal Sounds The Sadies have always been a reliable outfit when it comes to releasing new records, one of several Canadian bands - Blue Rodeo, the Skydiggers and the Tragically Hip among them - that have found a special kinship with classic Americana. Yet, if their star hasn't risen as high as it ought to, it may be caused in part by the fact that they're frequently loaned their talents to others, mostly playing back-up band for Neko Case, John Doe, Andre Williams and Mekons front man Jon Langford. ...
CD review - Darker Circles More than some contemporaries, The Sadies record Albums. Less important to the Toronto band, it seems, are individual songs. What is most apparent when listening to any album from The Sadies - brother guitarists Travis and Dallas Good, drummer Mike Belitsky, and bassist Sean Dean - is that they craft 30- to 40- minute visions of sound: kicking drums, rumbling bass lines and guitars that swirl psychedelic and alt.-country influences and flavors into a concoction that is immediately identifiable. ...
