2011 Breakout Artist of the Year The City Harmonic barreled its way from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada onto the music scene with Introducing The City Harmonic, an EP featuring "Manifesto," which soared to No. 5 on iTunes and captivated over a million viewers on YouTube. Top that with becoming the best selling new artist on Billboard's Top Current Digital Sales Chart (over 80K downloads), and it's enough, among life's crazy distractions, to get your attention.
But this band-vocalist/songwriter and pianist Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan- isn't content to feed the machine or build a fan base so much as to build upon a dream. And not a dream as in a fairy tale. But THE Dream. These four guys grapple with the tension of this world, crafting it into anthems of longing, hope, and love-songs of light for ‘seeing through a glass darkly.' The City Harmonic makes music that makes you reconsider what you really believe... about yourself, your world and your God.
Launching Oct 18th, The City Harmonic's Kingsway release, I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME), is one of the most anticipated full-length imports in decades. Co-produced by the band with Jared Fox, I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME) is a journey of imagination, cinematic in composition, and, as is signature for the band, a definitive reflection of The City Harmonic's organic, communal aesthetic. Intelligent, deeply spiritual and intrinsically ‘real life,' it reveals the poetic art of The City Harmonic, a band bent on living today for the world to come.
"This project for us was like a journey through a lot of intertwining things," Elias Dummer says of the band's full-length debut. "At its heart is the overarching theme of brokenness and redemption, of light and dark, the unveiling of something bigger and better than ourselves."
