Resonating en masse as listeners instinctively join the chorus as the music dynamically bounces from sparse intimacy to soaring celebration and back again, The City Harmonic will play its hit singles and music from I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home) while on tour.   In addition to the title track, a top 15 Billboard National Christian Audience radio hit; “Manifesto,” which sold well over 100,000 copies and is the only song from a new artist in 2011 to break into the top 10 of the SoundScan Top Current digital singles sales chart; and “Mountaintop,” the hit radio single that will become the band’s third video; the band will also play the soon to be released single, “Holy (Wedding Day),” a beautiful ballad about the ultimate redemption, the glorious day to come when faith becomes sight.

 

“Music engages us emotionally and intellectually,” says The City Harmonic front man, Elias Dummer. “There are universal signs of God’s presence in every part of it. ... It’s like a glimpse of something bigger than ourselves, some pervasive and yet otherworldly dream. And if we can somehow spark in people that dream, something they just can’t shake, then I hope that will inspire them to sing like every word matters, to live like every day matters, and having tasted heaven, they’ll get on with helping this world feel more like home.”

 

Whether in full-on pop explosion or in ethereal ballad, the songs of The City Harmonic are connecting with listeners and giving them permission to sing out. The captivating sing-along nature of the music they make was birthed with community expression in mind. This is part of the band’s DNA as they even encourage people to download for free the chord charts and lyrics to their most popular songs from their website, http://thecityharmonic.com.

 

One of the best-selling new artists of last year, The City Harmonic, continues to connect with music fans internationally while the critics are using adjectives like “fabulous,” “infectious,” “exciting,” “spectacular,” “worshipful,” “captivating,” “creative,” “brilliant” and more to describe I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home). Released Oct. 18, 2011 on Kingsway with EMI CMG Distribution in the USA, the album hit No. 1 on iTunes® in Canada, No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and never left the Top 4 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel US chart in its debut week at retail.

 

The City Harmonic, consisting of Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan, wrote, recorded and produced all of the songs for I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home). From the “now but not yet” tension of earthly Christian living heard in much of the album, including the title track and “Mountaintop,” to having hope in the midst of struggle in “Fell Apart” and “Be Still O My Soul,” to dealing with apathy in “Yours” and “Wake Me Up” and living missionally in “Spark” and “Benediction,” the songs take the listener on a poetic journey.
